Patients thank animal hospital for saving lives

Posted: Updated:

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Dozens of pet owners are thanking a Connecticut veterinary hospital for rare medical treatments that helped save their furry friends' lives.

More than 50 pets and their owners from Connecticut and New York gathered at Cornell University Veterinary Specialists in Stamford. It's a university-affiliated satellite specialty and emergency veterinary hospital providing 24-hour care and advanced treatment once reserved for humans.

Among the animals who returned to the hospital were Teddy, a poodle who needed skin reattached after a car accident; Fluff, a cat whose congenital hypothyroidism required hormone treatments; and a Great Dane named Chino who attended in top hat and bow tie.
