Once a Therapy Basset Hound, a huge breed with short legs, was put into bed with my pediatric post appendectomy patient. The animal put his huge heavy foot and stood on the child's incision. NOT therapeutic! I was not in the room when this happend, nor was I asked for permission. Sure they make people happy, but please keep them out of acute care and out of beds. Thanks.
He prayeth well who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast;
He prayeth best who loveth best
All creatures great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth All.
