Live Edition: Animal Airwaves—Live is an hour-long call-in show that airs between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays on WUFT-FM in Gainesville. The show features faculty members from the UF Veterinary Hospitals who address a variety of topics relating to pet health care, including companion animals, exotic pets and horses.

Does your pet suffer from arthritis? Have old wounds not quite healed? Many pet owners now turn to acupuncture and rehabilitation in conjunction with traditional veterinary medicine or as a last resort when their animals face a variety of medical problems in order to build strength and stamina. Dr. Medina, a clinical assistant professor and chief of the acupuncture and rehabilitation service, shares ways in which these treatments can be beneficial to your pet.
