Horse Equipment Saves Dog, plus What Best in Show Means

A Bernese Mountain Dog had been having trouble breathing for six months when he finally got to the veterinary teaching hospital at the University of California, Davis. A second set of X-rays sent the specialists on a mission to remove a mass in her trachea. To do that, they solicited the assistance of colleagues who work on horses, not dogs. We think you’ll enjoy the story of Bryggen’s treatment and recovery.

Find out what else he learned from his analysis.
