Our pet therapy dogs are unique to our office and they soothe our patients with love and affection. They are gentle, well-trained and loving. Both have had extensive training in obedience and provide a therapeutic benefityou for our patients. OUR PATIENTS LOVE OUR DOGS AND WE CALL THEM OUR “WOUNDDOGS!”
Watch the short video below to see Pocket, our “Cockalier” (King Charles/Cocker Spaniel mix.)
Pocket is a Cockalier (part King Charles, part Cocker Spaniel) and Inky is an unusual breed called a Blue Picardy. A Blue Picardy has a “golden retriever” demeanor with an added dose of obedience and gentleness.
We all know that when we are not feeling well, our anxiety heightens. Pocket and Inky provide an unusual love and comfort that our patients report to enhance their experience here at Encompass HealthCare and Wound Medicine. In fact, some patients love our dogs so much that they want to take them home with them!
