Arlo Frost, ’87 DVM, finds that an enjoyable diversion from veterinary medicine is... more veterinary medicine.
Frost volunteers with the Student Initiative for Reservation Veterinary Services (SIRVS), a University of Minnesota student-led volunteer organization that provides veterinary services to Minnesota Indian reservations.
Sandra Soucheray, ’02 DVM, can treat three dogs in just one hour. She has spent the last three years driving across the Twin Cities to take care of dogs and cats at home. Soucheray worked in a clinic for 13 years before launching Dr. Soucheray’s At Home Veterinary Care, her own mobile practice. Now, she keeps all her equipment in her van and provides pet care in her clients’ homes. She has found that pets respond better to treatment in their natural environment—some don’t even have to leave their bed.
The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) had more donors than any other college at the University of Minnesota in the previous fiscal year. A total of 4,558 donors made 9,252 gifts in fiscal year 2018, which ended June 30. Both are College records. Only U of M Athletics, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, and the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota surpassed the CVM in number of donors.
The College of Veterinary Medicine hosted a Staff Appreciation Day Luncheon and Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, July 19. Over 50 awards were given to our dedicated staff and faculty.
Since 1951, when the CVM graduated its first class of students, a large photo of each year’s class has been produced and mounted on a wall of the College. As you may have already seen, these photos currently hang in the main hallway of the Veterinary Medical Center. Unfortunately, the class photographs for the years 1971–80 and 1993 were produced with color dyes that faded. The quality of these portraits was very poor, and it became clear that they would soon deteriorate altogether.
