Cancer Survivor Therapy Dog “Moose” Awarded Honorary Veterinary Degree from Virginia Tech
“Moose” is a mental health therapy dog and cancer survivor
One awesome therapy dog
He’s worked at Virginia Tech’s Cook Counseling Center since 2014.
Moose has been in more than 7,500 counseling sessions, making him one awesome mental health advocate.
He’s had some challenges of his own.
Earlier this year, doctors diagnosed Moose with prostate cancer. He’s made it through aggressive rounds of chemotherapy and radiation.
He’s back to work at Virginia Tech.
Well-earned honorary degree
Leaders there thought Moose needed to be recognized for his outstanding service and contributions to the school.
They awarded him with his own honorary veterinary degree during this week’s graduation ceremonies.
When Moose isn’t working so hard helping others he enjoys swimming, playing tug of war, and perhaps most of all, eating.
