Puppy Brother Comforts Ill Sister After Being Treated In Vets

An emotional video of a puppy comforting his sister at the vet's has got hearts leaping from viewers all over the internet.

The heartwarming video, which has racked up more than 65,000 views on Facebook, shows two pups - one hooked up to a drip and the other showing support and love to his poorly sibling.

Tissues at the ready! As they both lay on the vet's bed, the male pup seems to be gently holding his sister's head in his paws - cue plenty of tears and all the feels.

The male pup has already recovered from the deadly virus in the clip, it's been reported, but he doesn't leave his sister's side once.

When the male pup made his recovering he reportedly began started acting strangely, seeming to be worried and emotional - and it seems as though he was concerned for his still-ill sister.

The caring little creature started to give his sister love and support until they were both fully recovered.

Viewers have been left choked up at the love shown in the video.

One person commented: "It's heartbreaking. I hope they made a recovery."

Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious viral illness that affects dogs. The virus manifests itself in two different forms.

The more common form is the intestinal form, which is characterized by vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss and lack of appetite.

The less common form is the cardiac form, which attacks the heart muscles of fetuses and very young puppies, often leading to death.

Parvo is generally vaccinated against when the animals are very young.

And it seems that dogs' insight into illness isn't reserved for when fellow members of the species are sick or in pain - earlier this year one dog seemed to have a sixth sense for humans in need of some love.

One man, waiting to board a plane, had just lost his family pet, and really wasn't up for a daunting and stressful airport wait.

A loving little corgi named Cora seemed to really understand the man's pain as she wandered over to sit with and comfort him.

Dogs seem to have an intuition to comfort those in need - the internet is full of amazing viral videos of animals comforting their humans when they're in need.

Like this video of a dog coming to the rescue of its upset human-brother.

But it seems the intense love is mutual - as Tom Hardy proved earlier in the year when he shared a heartfelt goodbye to his canine best friend.

Dogs, eh? Where would we be without 'em?
