Do you have a weakened immune system? Do you also own a pet? Researchers at the Wexner Medical Center and the College of Veterinary Medicine are looking for immunocompromised pet owners to participate in a focus group that will develop educational practices to guide safety when interacting with animals. The study begins in late May.

Ann Gazelle and Gail Baldwin rely on their seeing-eye poodles, Sheba and Glory, to get around. It meant a lot to them to be able to bring Sheba, 4, and Glory, 10, to the VMC on May 18 to receive eye exams - free of charge. This was made possible by an annual program created by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists that provides free sight exams for service animals each May.
