Congratulations to our most recent Masters of Public Health (MPH) graduates for their hard work and dedication! Sixty-one students have now graduated with the MPH degree specializing in Veterinary Public Health (VPH).
The VPH specialization in the MPH program is a partnership between the College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Public Health. This unique degree allows students to learn the animal and human sides of disease in order to more effectively understand zoonotic diseases that can be passed between humans and animals.
Dr. Linda Lord was interviewed for an article about a proposed microchip law for pets claimed or adopted from shelters in California. Dr. Lord was involved in a study that looked at 53 shelters in 23 states between August 2007 and March 2008. The study found that lost pets that have been microchipped and are brought into shelters are reunited with their owners in three out of four cases. If the proposed law passes, it will be the first microchip law in the United States. Please follow the links to read the full article.

Dr. Jeff Lakritz, professor of Veterinary Clincal Sciences at the College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently interviewed by 10TV News for a story concerning milk safety. Milk is routinely tested for the presence of antibiotics before it is distributed to stores. Milk safety protocol seems to be effective as the Ohio Department of Agriculture reports that in the last 15 years, no antibiotics have been detected in finished milk products.
Dr. Tony Buffington was recently interviewed by the Los Angeles Times for an article regarding the increasing trend of organic pet food. More and more pet food stores are carrying organic, minimally processed, or raw pet foods. Additionally, some stores are also offering nutritional supplements for pets. While some pet owners may view specialty foods as a healthier option, veterinarians caution that additional research is needed to verify the nutritional benefits or drawbacks of organic foods.
