Kodiak (also known as Kodi in the clinic) started her career in therapy at eight weeks old and has been a staple in the clinic since 2007. She is normally found lounging in the hallways looking for anyone that will give her a bit of attention (or treat). She is known to wander the clinic looking for that patient that may need her special kind of therapy. The effect she has on those in pain is astounding, just what the doctor ordered!
In her free time, Kodi likes to play with her sister, take naps, and just about anything outside. Head out the car window, ears flapping in the wind is one of her favorite past times, as her owners take frequent road trips.
