Whether pet lovers are concerned about training puppies, avoiding pet-toxic foods or caring for older animals, “Vet Med Moment,” a weekly short series airing on KOSU, has the topic covered.

KOSU, the OSU Center for Veterinary Health Sciences and the Kirkpatrick Foundation have formed a partnership to present the weekly short series at 1:20 p.m. Wednesdays and 6:40 a.m. Sundays. The program can be heard on KOSU, 91.7 FM in central Oklahoma and 107.5 FM in northeastern Oklahoma, and on KOSU.org.

“Public radio listeners love their pets and they love to be informed,” said Kelly Burley, KOSU director. “This program will be a great way for KOSU to bring these two things together.”

The program launched in February and nearly 50 interviews are available to listeners online at vetmedmoment.com.

“Our goal is to engage the audience around the powerful bond between animals and humans,” said Dr. Lesa Staubus, clinical assistant professor in the center’s Veterinary Medical Hospital and host of the program. “Each week, we touch on a subject that is important to animal health and hope to give listeners information that will promote excellent animal care.”
