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.
Have you ever wondered about the role veterinarians play in keeping dairy products safe? It’s a key role, and one that involves not only animal health but also an understanding of herd management and biosafety practices. Dr. Klibs Galvao, a food animal veterinarian with the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, will discuss issues that affect dairy cows in Florida and elsewhere, and how UF assists area farms in better managing their practices and keeping these cows healthy.
