Kiara’s Story: Shedd Aquarium Turns to VSC to Provide Sea Otter with Lymphoma Treatment

For many years, Veterinary Specialty Center has collaborated closely with the Shedd Aquarium providing surgery and specialty care for some of their animals. Recently, Dr. Rhonda Feinmehl and her team worked with them to create a special protocol, provide treatment and direct the care for Kiara the sea otter who was diagnosed with lymphoma. Her story was featured on a new series called “An Ocean on the Lake: Inside Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium” on ABC 7.
