November means holiday preparations, homecoming celebrations, the onset of the college food drive and much more. Here are a few photos we’ve assembled from the past month.

SCAVMA Art Auction

The third annual SCAVMA Art Auction was held Nov. 22 and was a big success, generating $2,700. The funds will benefit SCAVMA as well as other student clubs that helped generate donations. Dr. Toots Banner was “auctioneer” for a new live auction component of the event, which proved quite popular. (Photo by Sarah Carey)

He currently heads the UF CVM’s department of small animal clinical sciences. (Photo courtesy of Dr. Rowan Milner)

Dr. Yarnall with bulldog

Heisman, a 13-week-old English bulldog, came in as an emergency on Nov. 15 and was diagnosed with pneumonia. He remained in the UF Small Animal Hospital’s ICU through Nov. 17, but is now home in Palatka and doing well! Dr. Benjamin Yarnall, an intern and Heisman’s new best friend, holds him in this photo provided by Heisman’s owner, who adds that Heisman is not a Georgia bulldog…he’s actually a Clemson Tiger! Part Florida Gator now, too! (Photo courtesy of Aeron Mace)
