Veterinary professionals go above and beyond to care for pets, especially those we want to keep a close eye on. We asked our veterinary friends on the @DrAndyRoark Instagram if they’ve ever carried a patient in their scrubs or found another creative way to keep a pet close by.

The result? A photographic reminder of how compassionate those who work in vet med really are. <3
