The new dog-walking area that was built as part of Phase 1 of the Enhancement and Expansion project at the Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) is ready and includes a special fire hydrant for the dogs that prefer to "relieve themselves" on a familiar outdoor object. The design is a delight to Ohio State football fans, who enjoy all references to The Rivaly with "that team up north," and features a maize and blue color scheme.
This past fall a team of 14 U.S. veterinarians, technicians, students and assistants traveled to Ibarra, Ecuador, to volunteer in a week-long spay/neuter clinic.
There have been three confirmed cases of Equine Herpes Virus: one in Michigan and two in Ohio. The Ohio farm is in Muskingum County, and it has been placed under quarantine by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. One of the ill horses has been euthanized and the other is responding to treatment. None of the other horses on the farm are currently symptomatic. Horse owners are reminded that the virus is treatable in its early stages and is highly contagious. The earliest warning symptom is fever.
The story of Dennis the dachshund and his dramatic weight loss has inspired his owner to create a fund at Ohio State's Veterinary Medical Center to support better health in overweight dogs.
Brooke Burton discovered Dennis, a 6-year-old miniature dachshund, in 2013. Dennis had been in the care of Burton's relative, who had been over-feeding the dog with an extremely unhealthy mix of human foods, leaving Dennis at a shocking 56 pounds. He could barely walk.
Third-year veterinary students and roller-blade enthusiasts Chelsea Weber and Jessica Christine are rollerbladed from Columbus to Cincinnati over spring break.
In continuation of Oath in Action, an opportunity to reach out and connect to the animal loving public outside of the veterinary clinic, local veterinarians and Ohio State veterinary students volunteered in early March to visit clients of LifeCare Alliance to perform general wellness examinations on their four-legged family members at their homes.
