Cats and dogs, like humans, can get heart disease. Some breeds are more likely than others to develop heart problems. The Veterinary Medical Hospital at Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences has a board certified veterinary cardiologist on staff—Dr. Ryan Baumwart—to help owners treat heart disease in their pets.

Dr. Brad Hildabrand (OSU 79) recently volunteered with White Buffalo Inc. to help sterilize white tailed deer in East Hampton, NY. Female white-tailed deer were captured using remote immobilization (darting) techniques. Deer were then transported to a temporary veterinary surgical sterilization site, where bilateral ovariectomies were performed using a ventral mid-line approach under general anesthesia.
Dan Burba grew up on a farm in eastern Kentucky and dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. He came to Oklahoma State University in 1986 to complete an internship followed by a residency. Even though he left OSU in 1990 upon completion of those positions, Oklahoma remained a favorite of his. So much so that when invited to interview for an open position at the center’s Veterinary Medical Hospital, he said he “couldn’t miss that opportunity.”
