Update: Almost 10 years later, Kasi going strong

By complete luck, I happened to reconnect recently with Blake Donovan, whose 6-month-old puppy, Kasi was saved by Dr. Sears in June 2000.

Here’s what I wrote back then: “6/13/2000 — This is Kassi, whose owner, Blake, found my website only days after I put up these pages in May and got her to Dr. Sears in time. A six-month old puppy, Kassi had just been rescued from a shelter but quickly showed the early signs of distemper, including a green mucous discharge from the nose.”

Here’s what Kasi looked like in 2000.

At the time, Blake Donovan wrote this:

“She is another success story for Dr. Sears. He even has my vet’s attention, he got some of the serum for his practice. . .The titer test shows no signs of the virus at all. Thank you so much for your site, it saved little Kassi’s life for sure.”

And here’s Kasi today [received 12/12/09], almost 10 years later, still a happy, healthy dog:

Thanks to Blake Donovan for sending this in and giving an update.
