His name was Harris

On March 14, a rabbit that had been attacked by a cat was admitted by a kind, private citizen from Harrisonburg.

I happened to be in the clinic, talking to one of the rehabilitators, when the rabbit arrived. Rayshaud, our veterinary technician intern, went into radiology to start the patient admission exam.  Instantly, Rayshaud’s gaze pointed toward me. As he held the box with this little rabbit in it, he realized the animal wasn’t a cottontail -- he was a domestic pet.  It looked so similar to a wild rabbit — I’m not surprised there was a mix-up! 

An Ode to #0088

It’s not often that one comes into contact with a bald eagle, the symbol for our nation and an animal considered mighty and majestic by many. It is even rarer, then, to be holding one of these animals tight against your chest as it fights for its life and your coworkers fight with it.
