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.
Every community has feral cats, and controlling these feline populations can be a huge challenge. Operation Catnip, a nonprofit organization that offers free spay/neuter and vaccines for unowned, free-roaming community cats from the Alachua County area, has been in existence at UF since1998. Dr. Julie Levy, who founded the all-volunteer program, talks about how the program works, what its goals are and how you can become involved.
