Diagnostics are a crucial part of the animal health puzzle. While some domestic animal diagnostics can be applied to aquatic animals, others require modification and creativity. Our program provides resources that are specifically suited for these aquatic species.
Our research interests include animal and ecosystem health, conservation, and beyond. We have faculty and graduate students studying a range of aquatic species and habitats in an effort to contribute to new scientific data regarding aquatic animals and habitats.
We offer a range of educational opportunities for veterinary students, post-DVM specialty programs, undergraduate and graduate students, and even primary education students.
Our program is part of a collaboration with the Southeast Stranding Network. Our team assists with response to sick, injured, or deceased marine mammals and sea turtles. Additionally, these efforts contribute to population and health data of these species in this expansive geographical range.
