We know how lucky we got when we found Dr Novara at @urbanpawvet to help rehabilitate Mateo after surgery, and it’s been amazing to watch him relax and heal when she’s doing treatments.

What we didn’t realize is Mateo would find a soulmate in Elia, who has come to help with both appointments. She seems to have an intuitive understanding of his need for love and comfort and immediately makes him feel safe, cozy and even stronger and braver than he already is. Children of all species can have such an awe-inspiring sense of compassion, one that we should all aspire to, and Elia is a healer just with her presence.

Today, Mateo fell asleep in her lap during laser.

Tomorrow he gets his stitches out and we start a new journey, spending some time out of the stall!
