Recently 50 animals throughout CT, Westchester and the tri state area were honored at Cornell University Veterinary Specialists as Courageous Companions. These pets were literally brought back from the brink of death using procedures and treatments once only performed on humans.
It has been more than three years since the CUVS opened its doors and since then, thousands of animals of all species and literally from around the world have benefited from their specialty service.
