Veterinary Emergency Team Returns from Dallas After Caring for Bentley

Two members of our Veterinary Emergency Team– Dr. Wesley Bissett and Dr. Deb Zoran–traveled to Dallas to aid in the care of Bentley, the pet of nurse Nina Pham who was being treated for Ebola. Bentley was being monitored and cared for in isolation out of an abundance of caution. Thank you for your service, Dr. Bissett and Dr. Zoran! The CVM has published information on Ebola to our website.
