Dog Owner Thanks Veterinarian With $6M Ad During Super Bowl
The Super Bowl is days away. While some people are watching because they are fans of the sport, others are just in it for the commercials or for the Halftime show.
Whatever the reason may be you are probably going to catch a commercial of a dog and his owner thanking a veterinarian. NBCnews.com reported that David McNeil, the owner of a 7-year-old golden retriever, Scout, is giving his dog's vet a huge shout out during the Super Bowl.
No, but really. McNeil is so thankful that he placed a 6 million dollar commercial ad to thank his dog's vet after saving his life. According to NBCnews.com, the 7-year-old golden retriever collapsed during the summer of 2019 and was diagnosed with cancer. McNeil was told that his furry friend only had a month to live.
Scout's owner was given the option to put down his furry friend. McNeil wasn't going to let that happen and was willing to do whatever it took to keep him alive.
NBCnews.com reported that McNeil took Scout to the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine where the golden retriever was treated "with aggressive chemotherapy and radiation that nearly eradicated his tumor."
The 6 million dollar ad that will be running during the Super Bowl is called "Lucky Dog". The ad is 30 seconds long and it encourages people to donate to veterinary school's research.
