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.

Aquatic animal medicine is a young specialty of veterinary medicine that includes medical care of marine mammals, sea turtles, fishes and aquatic invertebrates. UF’s aquatic animal health program is on the forefront of this exciting area, which includes training, education, clinical, diagnostic and research support for aquatic animals, both wild and under the care of man. Learn more about some of the exciting ways in which UF, in partnership with local, state and federal agencies as well as private groups and other stakeholders, is making a difference in the lives of these important animals when Dr. Mike Walsh provides an overview.
