Once a week, the youngest patients at The Nebraska Medical Center get a break from treatment or their hospital room and get a different kind of therapy: pet therapy. Dedicated volunteers bring their specially trained dogs to the medical center to play, sit and enjoy the company of these very special kids. Dogs such as Booner, Zulu, Guy and Ranger take turns with each child.
