Black-and-white image of a veterinarian and a dog on a table. The man is facing the viewer frontally and wearing a white coat. There is a stethoscope around his neck. There is a dog in the right side of the image, the head and front legs of which are visible. The man is holding the dog's head from underneath its mouth, with his proper right hand, and he is touching the top of the dog's head with his left hand. The dog is white with large, black spots.
