"Advances in Veterinary Medicine Week" features Ohio State researchers presenting their latest work, as well as the annual "Research Day" in the College of Veterinary Medicine.
The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center continually strives to be the best, and it now has newly renovated leading-edge facilities to excel in that quest.
February is National Pet Dental Health Month. People brush their teeth every day, and the same should be true of your pets. Only about 2 percent of dog owners actually follow through by putting brush and paste to teeth.
Good veterinarians must be experts in cutting-edge animal medicine, and an education from the Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine has long instilled such skills.
Great veterinarians, however, must know how to share that knowledge with clients; listening and talking to pet owners with both clarity and compassion.

In December, the College of Veterinary Medicine hosted a reception to honor Dr. Michael Lairmore, associate dean for Research and Graduate Studies, professor, Department of Veterinary Biosciences, and associate director for Shared Resources at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC), who was recently named to the Institute of Medicine, one of the highest honors awarded to scientists in the biomedical fields.
