UF vets revive ‘miracle’ dog on Christmas

 Good News Notes:

“Gerald Ford sat outside the emergency room at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine’s Small Animal Hospital at 7 a.m. on Christmas and asked God for a miracle. All he wanted was for his 14-month-old black French bulldog, Neo, to come home again.

A team of at least seven veterinarians worked to stabilize Neo, who had been attacked by an animal, likely another small dog or raccoon while wandering Ford’s 12-acre White Springs property. Unfortunately, his heart gave out.

And then it began beating again.

It is rare for an animal to have a successful resuscitation, said Dr. Bobbi Conner, a UF professor and vet specializing in emergency medicine and critical care. Research suggests the animal lives a full, healthy life about 5% of the time after resuscitation.”
