Amazing stories to warm the heart
Sandy Willis, DVM, DACVIM posted:
Please take a look at the stories of four dogs, two cats and one horse who with their family veterinarian sought specialty veterinary care from internists, cardiologists, neurologists and oncologists boarded in the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM)
Note particularly the quality of life these animals continue to enjoy despite potentially life-threatening diseases.
Referral to a specialist starts with a specialty physical exam of the animal. Whether or not additional diagnostic tests and treatments are done, the owner receives answers to questions that may have regarding their animal's advanced disease.
You can watch the whole presentation that took recently at the ACVIM Annual meeting or the shorter individual presentations.

I really enjoyed these videos! I would encourage anyone who has a few free minutes to watch them and learn about some special animals and the folks who care for them.
