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