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.
The holidays are a fun time to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends, including our beloved pets. The holiday season may also present opportunities for new sites, smells- and sometimes dangers- for our pets.
We all understand the importance of having routine check-ups for our children and families, but what about our pets? Pets age faster than we do, which makes regular visits to the veterinarian even more important. Pets can have health issues and these routine appointments can help prevent or make an early diagnosis of problems.
Congressman Bill Johnson (Ohio 6th Congressional District) visited The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Medical Center in September. During his visit, Congressman Johnson took a "behind-the-scenes" tour of the Veterinary Medical Center and its three hospitals: the Hospital for Companion Animals, the Hospital for Farm Animals, and the Galbreath Equine Center.
