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.

Learn more about dairy cows and why their welfare is so important to both farmers and consumers, when Dr. Klibs Galvao, UF’s dairy extension veterinarian, shares his insights on this subject.
