Congratulations to Dr. Yasuko Rikihisa, professor in the Department of Veterinary Biosciences, who has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences. This is one of the highest honors bestowed upon a U.S. scientist and is a reflection of Dr. Rikihisa’s outstanding research career.
Trey Green and Todd Adams are both farriers at The Ohio State University Galbreath Equine Center in Columbus, Ohio. They each have been shoeing horses for nearly 20 years. Todd has lived and worked as a farrier in Ohio all his life, and Trey lived in Colorado before coming to Ohio a number of years ago.
The Ohio State Large Animal Services at Marysville has five faculty veterinarians that service 16 counties. The facility serves privately owned horses, dairy and beef cattle, pigs, camelids (alpacas and llamas), deer, and small ruminants (goats and sheep) from central and western Ohio.
According to a research study, the return rate for lost animals with microchips was 20 times higher for cats and 2 ½ times higher for dogs compared to lost animals without that identification device.
In celebration of National Pet ID Week, the Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center’s Community Practice will be offering a free year registration through HomeAgain (a $27.99 value) for microchips purchased April 16-22.
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at The Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center?
Social work has a rich history of bringing people together to support families and individuals in need. We are proud of the contributions our two social workers make to our college and Veterinary Medical Center, veterinary profession, and society. The month of March celebrates the contributions of social workers in society.
The American Veterinary Dental Society reports that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age three. Disease is often indicated by bad breath, a change in eating or chewing habits, pawing at the face and mouth, and depression.
