Veterinarian Has A ‘Comfort Dog’ Assistant That Helps Ease Sick Dog Patients To Know Everything Will Be Alright

Times can be ruff, but sometimes all we need is a helping hand (or paw) to remind us that everything is going to be okay.

Twitter user @jsavite tweeted a photo of a “comfort dog” who provides support to four-legged patients who are feeling nervous during their vet appointments.

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


And we agree! Seeing this will certainly brighten your day and make your heart melt.

In the photo, you can see the comfort-dog nose-to-nose with a furry patient who seems to be getting blood-work done.

The doggy patient on the table looks a little sad, but the comfort-pup is right there to help him feel at ease during this scary time.

But it turns out that dogs aren’t the only animals that are capable of helping others feel at ease. One kitten named Ron, who ‘works’ at Northfield Veterinary Hospital in Denver, Colorado, does his best to console their furry patients as well!


Ron was rescued from a feral cat colony in Denver when he was just three months old. He was very scared when he first arrived at the hospital, but it didn’t take long for him to break out of his shell.

Ron uses his rough past to help other animals who are going through tough times. Everything he has been through has shaped him into the purrfect therapy kitty!


Ron snuggles up to their four-legged patients while they are getting procedures done and does a great job at making them feel comfortable.

While Ron was adored at the hospital by staff and patients, he eventually got adopted by a loving forever family who appreciates him just as much as everyone else has!

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:

We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!

One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.

It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.

After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.

There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.

There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet

Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.

These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.

1) Akita

When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.

2) Boxer

This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.

3) Skye Terrier

Known as the “small dog with the big ears,” this adorable breed hails from the Scottish Isle of Skye, hence the name. Whether you live in the city or the country, this small dog with a big personality is steadfast in snuggling, playtime, and remaining loyal to his owners.

4) Beagle

This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.

5) Shar-Pei

This wrinkly non-sporting breed is standoffish to strangers but very loyal to his owner. His ancient Chinese roots are part of the charm of the Shar-Pei. Regal, strong, and smart, if you want a BFF for life, this loose-skinned pooch may be the right choice for you.
