Meet the Therapy Dog: Bella Fiona
BELLA is officially RETIRED. She is 14 years old and currently enjoying a relaxed lifestyle of sunbathing, naps, and begging for treats! We miss her at the clinic, but wish her a fun retirement!
Bella Fiona is our animal-assisted therapy poodle. She and Dr. Ledet completed team training and passed a national examination qualifying them as an animal assisted therapy team by Pet Partners (a national animal therapy organization). She has prior experience at Southeast Louisiana Hospital, where she worked on a long-term, inpatient unit. She loves her job and is always eager to walk through the doors of the clinic. She's best known around the office for sprinkling love (and mischief) wherever she goes!
