Good thing he wasn't in a hospital hospital. Bc there have people denied that request.

Sweet story.

Not in hospitals around here. So long as the animal is vaccinated and clean, they are allowed to visit long-time patients (not in the ICU). I've even seen a parrot brought in. It's a no-brainer that a pet owner would be cheered and comforted by their pet's visit.
