Fairmont veterinarian takes home state honors

FAIRMONT, W.Va (WDTV) - A veterinarian from Fairmont was all smiles when he spoke with us about his recent honor from the West Virginia Veterinary Medical Association.

Dr. Joseph Romano said it's a privilege for him to be able to take care of sick and injured pets, but he find it rewarding to make such a difference not just in the lives of the pets, but also for their owners. All in all, he told us it's a good feeling to know he has made such an impact in his profession, and his community.

"The real award of this profession is helping the hurt and sick pets," said Dr. Joseph Romano.
