The Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association (LVMA) has recently awarded LSU School of Veterinary Medicine Dean Peter F. Haynes the 2013 Ralph C. Cooper Veterinarian of the Year Award. The award was presented at the Business Meeting/Veterinarian Luncheon during the LVMA’s annual Winter Meeting held in Baton Rouge on January 25, 2014. Dr. Kirk Ryan received the award on behalf of Dean Haynes.
From the cows that provide the milk for a bowl of cereal to the deer nibbling on a shrub in the park, and from sea lions working with their trainers at the zoo to puppies chasing balls in the yard, the connections humans have with animals are vast. This special relationship is explored in a new mobile exhibition from the Smithsonian. “Animal Connections: Our Journey Together,” a custom-built exhibition housed on an 18-wheel truck that expands into 1,000 square feet of space, will be at Tiger Park, across the street from the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine, Baton Rouge, La., Feb. 26-27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) announced today that the male whooping crane found wounded on Feb. 7 in Jefferson Davis Parish was humanely euthanized at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine this morning, Feb. 19.
On February 7, the LSU SVM held its annual White Coat Ceremony, and 84 third-year veterinary students received their white coats, signifying the beginning of Phase II of their veterinary medical education. Phase 1 begins with Year I and consists of lectures and labs; Phase 2 begins with the second semester of Year III and consists of hospital rotations.
