July is here, our new junior veterinary students now have almost two months of clinics under their belts, and lots is always happening — even in the “quieter” months of summer. Here are a few photos capturing some of our recent activities.

Dr. Jim Wellehan and pelican

Dr. Jim Wellehan of the zoological medicine service is shown with a young brown pelican that was brought to the UF Small Animal Hospital from Cedar Key. The animal had a fish hook in its stomach that was removed endoscopically.

Dr. Giuffrida and Lisa Holtzendorf

After the flooding from Tropical Storm Debby hit New River, which separates Bradford and Union counties, veterinary technician Lisa Holtzendorf rescued a tiny stranded kitten and brought it to the UF Small Animal Hospital for a check-up. The animal wound up receiving a new home with Dr. Michelle Giuffrida, our veterinary oncology fellow. Shown in the oncology treatment area are Dr. Giuffrida, Lisa and the very lucky kitten!
