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.

Ever wonder what it means when your veterinarian says, “We’re waiting on results from the lab?” Who exactly is in that lab, and what are they doing? Assistant professor and veterinary clinical pathologist Dr. Heather Wamsley of the UF Veterinary Hospitals will discuss the important behind-the-scenes role of the clinical pathologist in determining what’s wrong with Fido or Fluffy and help your vet determine a treatment plan.
