Updated 12/2/23 -- Veterinarians report an increased number of dogs presenting with acute respiratory infection.
Thanks to a $510,000 grant from Petco Love, highly-skilled veterinarians will go through an accelerated one-year internship with the UF Shelter Medicine Program.
With this research, we can better understand our challenges and continue our mission to protect and serve animals and their people.
