One budding doctor from New York has found the perfect medical patient to practice her skills on – her pet dog Nala. While many canine companions might run away when they are prodded and poked by their owner, Nala sits perfectly still as the young girl, Brooklyn, performs a thorough medical examination on her.

In an adorable video shared by Brooklyn's parents, the dog sits in an upright position on the sofa while Brooklyn checks her blood pressure and examines under her ears, before trying to feed her with a bottle.
