The veterinarian’s pet dog who also works as a therapy dog, has been comforting patient dogs who visit the veterinarian’s office for treatment or surgery. The cute doggo is always beside his owner and even assists him by calming down the nervous dogs. Veterinarians have a hard time treating nervous and frightened dogs, but with the help of his furry sidekick, assisting him in comforting the dogs, things have become a lot easy.
