Buddy The K9 Therapist • Healthcare Photographer

I recently completed an annual report photo project for Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau, Missourri.  Here is my favorite photo from the project.  The photo is of Dr. Heidi Hunter and her 4-year-old golden retriever Buddy.  Dr Hunter, who is the medical director of inpatient rehab at Saint Francis uses Buddy for pet therapy.  Pet therapy is known to decrease blood pressure, decrease anxiety, help with motivation, and decrease pain.  I thought the photo captured a nice moment between the doctor and K9 therapist.

Thanks for looking!
