A special thanks to Dr. Kate Woodruff, NCSU Veterinary School, Cardiology.  Dr. Kate provided Rex with exceptional care and loved him as much as we did.  Rex loved his  “Spa Days” at the vet school. Dr. Kate, was compassionate, caring, and was very straightforward with us regarding Rex’s prognosis.  Thanks Dr. Kate for giving Rex 5 quality months.


Rex looking for Dr. Kate!
