UF Veterinary Community Outreach Program continues to provide needed care amidst COVID-19
UF’s Veterinary Community Outreach Program (VCOP) continues to provide needed care for rescue animals in the Gainesville area. Below, Dr. Kelly Harrison, helped by VCOP technician Paola Lopez, prepares to administer a heartworm treatment to their patient, Cashew.
“Over the past several weeks, the Veterinary Community Outreach Program has continued to provide urgent and emergent medical care to shelter animals in need. More recently, we have been able to increase our caseload and resume normal spay-neuter operations,” Dr. Harrison explained. “In many cases, VCOP is the only pathway for these animals to receive the veterinary care they so desperately need. Because of this, it continues to be a top priority of ours to remain available for the animals we feel so fortunate to care for.”
