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.
Just like people, dogs can experience broken bones, sprained muscles and torn ligaments, all of which can lead to the sudden onset of limping or trouble with movement. Arthritis is another condition in which these problems commonly occur. Dr. Stan Kim, an orthopedic surgery, will discuss common causes of lameness and limping in dogs and ways in which veterinarians diagnose and treat these problems.
