Welcome to episode 22 of Viral. Sorry we’ve been gone for about a month, but we are back in the proverbial saddle (get ready for more animal puns) and ready to sink our teeth into a new topic. This week we discuss the link between veterinary medicine and public health. You don’t need hawk vision to see the link here, as we have been transmitting and receiving disease-causing pathogens to and from other species for thousands of years.
