‘Comfort dog’ consoles four-legged patients during vet visits


A veterinarian’s “comfort dog” assistant is going viral after a Tweet shows the helpful animal apparently offering support to a sick four-legged-friend in need.

Twitter user JustJanis shared the photo on Saturday showing a weary-looking dog attached to a medical device laying on a veterinarian’s bed while another dog lays it’s head upon the table, looking into the sick dog’s eyes with an apparent smile.

“So my friend’s vet has a comfort-dog assistant that helps sick patients know that everything will be alright,” read the tweet. “This is really all you need to see today.”
