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.

Dr. Jim Wellehan, an expert in zoological medicine and veterinary microbiology, will discuss some of the viruses he has helped identify in various marine mammal species, as well as how discoveries such as these shed light on the relationship between certain animal diseases and human disease. He will also talk about common health problems experienced in exotic pets.
