Veterinary Referral Center of Central Oregon Takes Part in Bend’s Christmas Parade

Patients from the Veterinary Referral Center joined the staff to walk in the 2018 Christmas Parade.  Dogs who were treated from every service (dermatology, internal medicine, surgery, and emergency) dressed in holiday décor to participate.  Patients included cancer survivors, those undergoing long term management for auto-immune conditions, and patients surgically treated for cruciate injuries (knee).  We were very happy that many of these patients could participate!

Additionally, the Veterinary Referral Center’s emergency ambulance was driven behind the animals.  This ambulance is used to transport patients from other hospitals to the referral center for advanced care and diagnostics.
