Sick as a Pig? Preparing for African Swine Fever

In the inaugural episode of Fully Vetted, hosts Mia Cunningham and David Frash sit down with Dr. Ellen Yoakam of the Ohio Department of Agriculture to discuss African swine fever (ASF).

Although it has not yet been detected in the United States, the possibility of its appearance has become a hot topic of conversation in the veterinary community. Dr. Yoakam explains the ramifications of the disease, as well as what is currently being done at a state and federal level to help mitigate the risk of ASF spreading.

Also, as part of the recurring segment Meet the Board, David sits down with 2020-2021 OVMA President Dr. Greg Hass to learn a more about his volunteerism.
