This week on Genome Barks, we welcome Dr. Kate Creevy, Assistant Professor in Small Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Georgia with a specialty in small animal medicine and infections disease. Dr. Creevy discusses the myths of vaccinations and infectious disease, susceptibility to vaccination reactions, regular vaccination schedules and the canine flu vaccine.
Dr. Creevy grew up in and around Cincinnati, Ohio, and attended Georgetown University for her undergraduate education. She earned her DVM from the University of Tennessee in 1998, and completed a rotating small animal internship at the University of Minnesota.

She joined the faculty at the University of Georgia in 2003 as an emergency medicine clinician, and subsequently completed both her residency in Small Animal Internal Medicine, and her Master’s degree in Infectious Disease at UGA. She is currently an Assistant Professor in Small Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Georgia.
