Dog travels from Thailand for heart surgery
URBANA, Ill. (WCCU) —
A dog traveled all the way from Thailand to undergo surgery at the University of Illinois Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Jordan Vitt corrected a heart condition in Nana, a 3-year-old Chihuahua.
Two veterinarians from a university in Thailand traveled with the dog, and hope to acquire the tools necessary to perform the surgery in their own hospital.
The hope is that Nana's operation and care strengthen the bond between the two schools.
