Our health seminar this year will be “Canine Vaccination and Immunity” (a timely topic!) by Dr. Laurie Larson of the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, scheduled for 8:00 PM on Thursday, June 2nd.
After five years in clinical veterinary practice, Laurie Larson, DVM joined the laboratory of Dr. Ronald Schultz at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Until his retirement in 2016, Dr. Larson studied canine and feline immune responses to vaccines and infectious diseases under Dr. Schultz’s mentorship, eventually becoming a co-investigator with him. As current director of the Companion Animal Vaccines and Immuno-Diagnostics Service (CAVIDS) Laboratory, Dr. Larson enjoys providing titer testing and consultation for veterinarians, dog breeders, pet owners, and animal shelters. She is pleased to be able to carry on Dr. Schultz’s important work in small animal immunology. Helping to improve the health and well-being of dogs and cats by serving the people who care for them is her life’s work and passion. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin.
