Meet handsome Harry!
Harry came to us because he was having trouble urinating. Internal medicine specialist Dr. Craig Maretzki discovered that Harry’s trouble was due to a urethral obstruction. Dr. Margo Mehl, one of two board-certified veterinary surgeons at VCA SFVS, performed a surgical procedure to fix Harry right up.
With a nod to the recent award season, Harry’s mom, Judith, reports that:
“The Oscar for BEST PATIENT and BRAVEST SF DOG goes to: HARRY!”
And here is Harry’s acceptance speech:
“I wish to thank all my good friends who helped me make a remarkable recovery, and the doctors and care-givers at the SPCA and [VCA SF] Veterinary Specialists, especially Dr. Love, Dr. Maretzki and my surgeon, Dr. Mehl.
“Thank you Teresa for visiting me in the hospital and at home and giving me treats.
“Thank you Everett for carrying me up the stairs when, after having the stitches removed, I was too groggy to negotiate them myself.
“And of course I want to thank my Mom, who has always been there for me. She had great faith in me and knew I’d make it through.
“I’ll be seeing you in all the old, familiar places… For a long time to come.”
We are happy we could be on your veterinary care team, Harry. Thanks to Judith for sharing your award speech and these photos with us. Your admirers at VCA SFVS wish you all the best, and congrats on your award!
