Joining us today will be Dr Richard Goldstein, one Chief Veterinary Officer to another, he will be walking us through diagnostic technology and how AI is changing the game in diagnostics and can help improve workflow in dermatology, blood smear, fecal analysis, digital cytology. We've got something for everybody in this episode, so Wally, should we get to the headlines? Let's do it. So, we got some fantastic organizations who are doing the work to improve animal lives. The ASPCA rehabilitation center and learning lab commemorated their five-year anniversary this month. Since opening the animal behavior education program has received nearly 30,000 enrollments Wally. That's incredible. It seeks to rehabilitate homeless dogs experiencing severe fear and a lack of socialization. Experts create behavior modification protocols, to enhance a dog's quality of life increase a dog's chances of being adopted and simulate unfamiliar scenarios they may encounter in a home. So that's a nice warm and fuzzy story and I like that that we're sharing that right and I know you have a wonderful home. I can't with this guy.
Okay, so next up, the Morris Animal Foundation announced the launch of its annual Stop Cancer Furever campaign see what they did there Wally for forever instead of forever. From beginning of May to the end of June, the foundation will be raising as much money as possible to help increase awareness about animal cancer and fund research to advance cancer prevention, diagnostics, and treatment. So for pet parents and animal lovers who want to get involved, the Morris Animal Foundation has created downloadable cancer prevention checklists, and educational cancer related content for free, all of which can be found on their website. That's wonderful. What do you think? Well, the more we know about cancer prevention, the better. So that's our news for today. But if you're wondering where the future of veterinary medicine and testing may be headed in a fast-changing world of technology, we've got Dr Richard Goldstein, who's got those answers covered. So stick with us after this quick commercial break from our friends at Zoetis. Welcome to dvm360 Live!™.
