Uma may be Sam's dog, but she is very close to the hearts of the Nickel City Animal Hospital staff, and our clients as well. She came to Dr. Sacks in 2008 as an abandoned puppy, and was nursed to health and welcomed into the family. A five-year-old Australian Cattle dog mix, Uma is a sweet dog with a warm heart who often helps owners and pets alike cope with grief. She is also our mascot, adviser, and canine ambassador for veterinary acupuncture. Say hello to her next time you are around!
