Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center to Open 24/7 Companion Animal Emergency and Referral/Specialty Satellite Hospital
The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine is announcing plans to open The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) in Dublin. The new facility, which will be a 24-hour companion animal emergency and referral/specialty hospital, is projected to open in spring 2013. The 10,000 square-foot-facility will be located at 5020 Bradenton Ave. in Dublin.
Summer is in full swing and heat waves are starting to take their toll on humans and animals alike. During periods of extreme heat, taking your dog jogging or running errands can result in heat stroke, turning a normal outing into a crisis situation. Unlike humans, dogs do not possess sweat glands and their fur naturally traps heat. Panting is their main method of cooling down, but excessive panting, a natural reaction to overheating, can lead to further fluid loss and dehydration.
On Friday June 29, the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and the Veterinary Medical Center held the 2012 Resident and Intern Certificate Presentation and Reception at the Ohio Union.

Dr. Michelle Harcha, director, Professional Development Education, is being featured for her support of Pelotonia, a grassroots effort to raise money for The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
