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.

“Testing, one, two, three….” When you visit the veterinarian, chances are you’ll be asked to have samples taken from your pet’s blood, urine and stool at some point to assess the animal’s overall health status. Learn more about what the most common tests are that take place in veterinary clinical pathology, and what they mean to you and your pet, when Dr. Heather Wamsley discusses this topic. Although the role of the clinical pathologist is behind the scenes, it is critical for disease diagnosis and prevention.
