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.

Do you think you want to be a veterinarian? Know someone who does? Dr. Rowan Milner, a professor and administrator at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, will talk about what it takes to complete this exciting but challenging professional journey. Dr. Milner will discuss what’s important to keep in mind when applying to veterinary school, and what potential applicants of all ages can do to better prepare themselves for the application process. He also will talk about what the profession of veterinary medicine entails and the ways in which “animal doctors” also contribute to human and environmental health.
