In this edition of Genome Barks, we welcome Dr. Adam Birkenheuer, a member of the faculty of North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Birkenheuer is a specialist in infectious disease, and will be discussing "bugs" that can make our dogs sick, including parvovirus, kennel cough, mange and tick borne disease. Dr. Birkenheuer will also discuss the management of infectious disease in multiple dog homes or kennel situations.
In this podcast we revisit our Senior Dog Health & Wellness series and hear from Dr. Joe Wakshlag, Associate Professor at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and Section Chief of Clinical Nutrition. Dr. Wakshlag received his DVM from Cornell University. He also completed a residency in clinical nutrition and PhD in pharmacology at Cornell and is a founding member of the American College of Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr. Wakshlag talks with us about diet in the senior and geriatric dog, with a special emphasis on our senior athletes.
