Veterinarian’s ‘Comfort Dog’ Helps Him Taking Care Of Sick And Scared Pets


Dogs are one of the most loving and caring animals. They are great comforters and a person’s best friend. However, their big and caring heart not only provides comfort and love to people but also they care about each other.

Namely, there are some cats and dogs that live at the veterinarian’s office and they have an amazing job there – to comfort animals that are scared when they come to the office.

In fact, there is one comfort dog who was captured with a dog patient while taking care of him and the picture has gone viral.

The caption reads: “This veterinarian has a comfort dog assistant that helps sick dog patients know that everything will be alright.”

The picture shows a beautiful dog lying on the vet bed, while the vet’s dog is sitting next to him and it gives him a nudge with his nose in an attempt to comfort him.

It is such a warm and heart-warming moment and it’s no wonder that the photo was receiving so much attention. It is a pure moment, and it evokes all kinds of emotions in us.

“This is the saddest and cutest photo I’ve seen in my life,” wrote one Redditor called JungleLiquor.

One Redditor, r/tecknoize, shared their devastating theory, saying, “What if that picture is actually of a veteran comfort dog, after helping countless others go through bad days, is now the patient, looking at the eyes of a new comfort dog recruit. As he remembers how he felt on his first day, he can’t help but do his job one last time, comforting the recruit that everything is going to be alright.”

Whatever the story behind the picture, we can all agree that they are adorable and dogs really have big hearts.
