International programs give students the opportunity to contribute globally. #PurdueDayofGiving http://bit.ly/GivetoPurdueVetMed

“On this trip, I learned the most about collaboration and what it really takes to accomplish anything in a international setting. I learned the most about myself and how to be a better learner with initiative.” - Amanda Emery (Class of 2016) describing her recent trip to Haiti.

Why should a PVM student participate in an international program/externship? “Why not? Our American culture is such a bubble and there is so much to see and learn outside of our comfort zones. If traveling has taught me anything, it is to never stop learning and growing (and never stop traveling!).”
#PurdueDayofGiving is April 29, 2015! Give back to grant opportunity and shape the future of Purdue.

Our Priority 4 Paws mobile unit serves the community and provides expierental learning for students. "The experiences I gained on the Priority 4 Paws (P4P) Mobile Unit were truly invaluable. The shelter medicine rotation allowed me to gain hands-on learning from a high quality high volume shelter veterinarian with a vast knowledge of both the medical and surgical aspects of a successful shelter. Having had the opportunity to complete over 50 spays and neuters prior to graduation has increased my surgical confidence and makes Purdue graduates a valuable asset to future employers." ---Kyle Shipman, DVM Class of 2015 #PurdueDayofGiving

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder who are in the presence of an animal
are less anxious, smile and laugh more often and are more social with their peers.

PVM Assistant Professor of Human-Animal Intaction, Dr. Maggie O’Haire developed an 8-week, classroom based program with guinea pigs as classroom pets. Implemented this program in mainstream school classrooms, including children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and typically-developing children. Following the study, both children with ASD and their peers showed increased social skills and social functioning.

Dr. O’Haire is leading the way in autism research and the positive impact that animals have on children.

Give today to help us continue research to advance animal and human healtlh. http://bit.ly/GivetoPurdueVetMed #PurdueDayofGiving #PurdueVetMed

Think you know everything there is to know about pigs? Put your swine knowledge to the test with the help of Purdue University Center for Animal Welfare Sciences Director Candace Croney on National Geographic’s new Nat Geo Wild series “Everything You Didn’t Know About Animals.” Dr. Croney will provide her expertise as part of the series’ next episode entitled, “Everything You Didn’t Know about Animals: Pigs, Wolves and Crows.” During the program scheduled to air Monday, April 27, at 10:00 p.m. (EST) on the Nat Geo Wild channel, Dr. Croney will explain some surprising facts about the common pig. Dr. Croney has received national recognition for her research on farm animal cognition.

You can check out the preview and Dr. Croney's Interview at http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/wild/everything-you-didnt-know-about-animals/videos/smell-test/
We’ll explore the swines’ surprisingly powerful ability of smell, which is so acute it can detect something buried two stories below the ground!
