The Behind the Scenes
..Dr. Leslie Willis Woods.............................
It has happened to you and probably your pet. You go to the doctor because you are not feeling well. They look, they ask, they listen…then inevitably it is time to go to the lab for poking, sampling and that all so much fun…peeing in a cup. Why do they need all of those samples? Aren’t they just trying to run up the bill?
My guest is Dr. Leslie Willis Woods. She is a board certified veterinary pathologist, a Ph.D., works for the California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory System and lectures on avian toxicology in the avian pathology and avian medicine courses at our alma mater, UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Today we are going to chat about keeping our pet birds safe in our homes and the role of the California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory System in keeping pets, people and the environment healthy.
