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.

If your pet has ever been diagnosed with a disease, chances are that diagnosis was made on the basis of results from tests that took place in a laboratory. Veterinary clinical pathologists play a key behind-the-scenes role in disease diagnosis, which in many cases forms the foundation for your veterinarian’s recommended treatment plan for your pet. Learn more about how the disciplines of clinical chemistry, cytology and hematology contribute to overall pet health when Dr. Heather Wamsley, a board-certified clinical pathologist, resumes her discussion from last summer on this important topic.
