Ogi has been caring for the health of animals for over 36 years and explained what he does involves the undeniable bond between people and their pets.
He said he understands just how attached people are to their furry friends. When something such as ill health has the possibility to sever that bond he will do whatever it takes to ensure that doesn’t happen.
However, Ogi admits, that in such cases when there is no cure for a sickness he feels nothing but helplessness. In these tough times, the light at the end of the tunnel for him is simply tending to more animals.
“The animals are always the focal point of every aspect at the clinic,” said Ogi. “To a further extent, however, the outpouring of love shown to them from the staff is indescribable.”
Thoma illustrated this through one of her personal experiences. “Just the other day we had a dog that was in our care after a pretty major orthopedic surgery. She was nervous and anxious and we could not get her to calm down,” Thoma said. “I ended up making a fort out of blankets and turned on classical piano music. She fell asleep in minutes. It’s something so small, but worked for this particular dog. Care equals comfort.”
