Meet Joshua! Joshua is truly an exceptional dog with an exceptional story. This adorable Lab mix has long been a service dog for his loving owner who spends all of her spare time trying to fund-raise for his medical issues. When Joshua’s “mom” found out that he had complicated foot issues which were impairing his ability to walk, she was devastated thinking about how long it would take her to come up with the full amount to get it fixed. As she was speaking with the lovely staff at Carlsbad Animal Hospital, a local councilman overheard her story. He was so touched that he generously offered to pay for the entire cost of Joshua’s treatment! Thanks to Carlsbad Animal Hospital, Veterinary Specialty Hospital and to this outstanding donor, Joshua is now on the right course to recovery.
