Dusty Anderson

Fourth year student Dusty Anderson (’17 DVM) has recently been named the recipient of the Margaret A. Haines Telephony Scholarship by the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA). The selection process for this $35,000 scholarship is extremely competitive. Dusty credits his receipt of this scholarship in part to the access WSU students have to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.


The Human Animal Bond

By Cindy Zaring

Human Animal Bond

This fall we were all provided a lesson on what it means to be a true companion to an animal. In September, we all began noticing the kind man in the corner of our lobby holding vigil next to his canine companion, Wiley. It was hard not to notice Wiley’s teddy bear face. Sadly, he spent his time lying flat, resting, and unable to use his legs in the ways that he had been accustomed.
