CBS Denver: “We reached out to Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital and put together a team of specialists that ultimately helped save Cofan’s life,” said Dr. Jon Romano, head veterinarian at CMZoo on the website. “This is the first time this surgery has ever been done for this species, and that was only possible for Cofan because of the collaborative relationship we’ve built with CSU over the years.”
