A cat from the Oktibbeha County Humane Society is screened for ringworm by a team from the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine's Shelter Medicine and Mobile Veterinary Program, which provides vital care to area animal shelters and gives MSU students hands-on experience in shelter medicine. Examining the four-legged friend is, from left, MSU DVM student Lakin Bronkar of Charles Town, West Virginia, CVM Clinical Instructor Dr. Alex Shealy, and CVM Animal Health Technician M'Lee Couch.
