Yoda is expected to live a full, happy and healthy life after veterinarians at Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences performed surgery in December to correct a congenital heart problem called a patent ductus arteriosus or PDA.

"I couldn't be more thrilled, Dr. Baumwart and the whole team up here have just been incredible," says Bob Williams, founder of Ranch Hand Rescue where Yoda is a therapy animal. "It's important to work with the best."
