In Brief

Stillwater

Show’s aim is

healthy pets

To help listeners keep their pets healthy, KOSU, the Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences and the Kirkpatrick Foundation are partnering on a new weekly series. “Vet Med Moment” airs at 1:20 p.m. Wednesdays and 6:40 a.m. Sundays on KOSU, 91.7 in Oklahoma City, 88.3 in Stillwater, 107.5 in Tulsa and KOSU.org. The idea for the radio program grew out of conversations between OSU and the Kirkpatrick Foundation, whose Safe & Humane initiative seeks to improve the lives of Oklahoma animals and the people who care for them. “Our goal is to engage the audience around the powerful bond between animals and humans,” said Lisa Staubus, clinical assistant professor in the center’s Veterinary Medical Hospital and host of the program. “Each week, we’ll touch on a subject that is important to animal health and hope to give listeners information that will promote excellent animal care.”
