Herbie and Dr. VittOur eight year old yellow lab, Herbie, means the world to us.  Herbie serves as a therapy dog for elementary students and has a special way of making those around him feel special and loved.  Herbie was diagnosed with a heart condition at two years old and that was his first visit to the cardiac clinic at A&M.  His condition was managed for the past few years, but recently, we discovered that his condition had significantly progressed.  He was in desperate need of a balloon procedure to open his heart valve.  Dr. Vitt took the time to thoroughly explain the procedure and make us feel comfortable about what would happen.  He was very patient with us and answered all our questions.  We are so thankful to everyone at the clinic for their loving care of Herbie, especially the vet students who kept us apprised of how Herbie was doing while he was away from us.  We are happy to report that Herbie is doing well since the procedure and we are delighted that this second chance for our amazing dog has been provided by the wonderful staff at A&M.  We are forever grateful for what you have done for Herbie.  Thank you!
