This is the touching moment in which a puppy showed a brotherly love to his sick sister who was recovering from a deadly virus in Egypt.
The two young dogs had been admitted to a veterinary clinic in Cairo, where they had been diagnosed with parvo, a potentially lethal infection of the virus.
While the man had responded well to treatment, the female puppy remained under the weather when veterinarians came to control them.
The images show the two dogs lying on a bunk in the clinic, and the brother has put a comforting leg on his sister while receiving medication.
Then the puppy is seen carefully lowering his head over that of his sister who apparently tries to show some love and support.
Dr. Mohammad Bu Yahya, who filmed the video at his Africano Center clinic in the Egyptian capital, said the couple had come to be treated as parvo a few days earlier.
After capturing the adorable moment on his mobile phone, he posted it on social networks, where it was shared by thousands.

He subtitled the video: "After four days of intensive treatment, and spending all day and night with them, the child is improving a lot, but the girl is still suffering."
"He shows the love and care of his sister and asks us to help her."
Dr. Bu Yahya said that both puppies recovered completely from Parvo.
Canine parvovirus, which causes lethargy, vomiting, fever and bloody diarrhea, can kill puppies and young dogs if left untreated.
Dogs can contract the disease through the feces of a sick animal, infected soil or fomites that carry the virus.
