Listen to a kitty’s heartbeat. Learn to bandage a horse’s hurt leg. Feel a llama’s wooly fiber. Get an up-close look at pet reptiles. Watch demonstrations of dog agility and canine police work.

This and more await visitors who attend our annual Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Open House tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s free and open to the public: http://col.st/iVWnT

And let’s give a round of a-PAWS to Devon Johnson, a 10-year-old student at Lopez Elementary School, who won our 2015 Open House art contest!

Is your backyard inviting in avian influenza?

Dr. Kristy Pabilonia, a veterinarian and expert in infectious diseases that affect poultry, is helping to track the fast-growing avian influenza outbreak as it spreads through turkey and chicken flocks in the United States. Even backyard flocks are potentially at risk, she notes in this news story in the Greeley Tribune: http://col.st/r1mux

Brutus news!

Our favorite patient with prosthetics is capturing hearts far and wide as he learns to use artificial limbs. Brutus, a 2-year-old Rottweiler, endured frostbite and botched paw amputations – but now is receiving care from Colorado State University experts, an orthotics specialist, and a devoted owner.
A rottweiler named Brutus is taking steps towards a new lease on life - steps on prosthetic paws.

Chloe doesn’t know it, but she’s a hero dog.

This Golden Retriever pup was the 3,000th—and final—dog enrolled in the Morris Animal Foundation Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. It’s the largest and longest effort ever undertaken to learn how to prevent cancer and other diseases in dogs, and our Flint Animal Cancer Center is teaming up with MAF to complete the study: http://col.st/Si3vG

Osteoarthritis is one of the most common and career-ending musculoskeletal injuries in horses. Our own Dr. Melissa King discusses how aquatic exercise could benefit your horse in this TheHorse.com article: http://col.st/KOMdy

See our underwater treadmill in action as Booya, a miniature horse, receives aquatic therapy at our Orthopaedic Research Center.

Members of the microbiology Angelo Izzo research lab took a break from their microscopes for ‪#‎WorldTBDay‬ to teach Lesher Middle School students about tuberculosis.

Did you know…
1. TB sickens 9 million people a year
2. 3 million people with TB don’t get the care they need
3. TB is recorded as far back in history as the Old Testament of
the Bible

Because veterinarians have vocals, too.

Congrats to our Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) who were awarded for their informational music video about SCAVMA.
