The College of Veterinary Medicine will recognize pets who have overcome life-threatening injuries and illnesses on Sunday, Oct. 26, at the Dr. Dougie Macintire Celebration of Life. The program, which begins at 2 p.m. in Overton Auditorium of the Veterinary Education Center, followed by a reception, was renamed for the late Macintire, co-director of the Emergency and Critical Care Service who was instrumental in establishing this recognition program. Each month, more than 75 critically-ill pets are treated in the Critical Care Service. Veterinary clinicians and veterinary technicians select the most extraordinary cases in the past year to be recognized during the program. The program culminates in the Manny Morpeth Case of the Year Award, named for the program’s first recipient in 2002.
