When You Wish Upon a Star...... Dreams Come True!

In Search of Compassionate Care Donald H. DeForge, VMD

When a star is born
They possess a gift or two
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind She brings to those who…

Finding the Cure: CAT STOMATITIS Part I

Dr. DeForge Discusses Breakthrough Surgery for Treatment of Cat Stomatitis Feline Stomatitis Radiowave Radiosurgery with Guided Bone Regeneration
