Oscar is a very special patient at West Kootenay Animal Hospital. He has had a wonderful life and will be turning 15 in May 2012. The list of illnesses Oscar has had and recovered from (acute respiratory distress syndrome, cholangitis, pancreatitis, bowel obstruction and recently lung lobe torsion, to name only a few!) is extensive. What is truly amazing, however, is the love and commitment his human family has for Oscar. It inspires us and reminds all of us at West Kootenay Animal Hospital why we entered this profession. Here’s to you Oscar, you truly are “the little dog that could”!
