An Academic Home for Pet-Care Specialists

When the Big Dog of University of Florida basketball’s dog has a problem, he rings the home team: veterinarians at the UF Small Animal Hospital. Billy Donovan, longtime head coach of the UF men’s basketball team, has led his players to two national championships and three appearances in the title game. He and his wife, Christine, have also recently led two family dogs on leashes through hospital hallways for orthopedic surgery.
