Management and faculty development in Veterinary Education Laboratory research activities have included the modulation of nitric oxide by hemoglobin compounds in septic shock. Clinical research experience includes serving as Site Coordinator for a multi-institutional FDA approved clinical trial evaluating the use of cell-free hemoglobin in the treatment of anemia in dogs. Contributions to clinical veterinary medicine include the development of techniques for the placement of transpyloric (nasoenteral) feeding tubes in dogs and indwelling arterial catheters in dogs, and the critical evaluation of venous blood oxygenation indices in the hemodynamic assessment of animals in septic shock. Current scientific investigations involve the renal dopaminergic responses in cats. His recent activities have also involved the role of the veterinary profession in public health policy, veterinary practice management, and workplace mediation and conflict resolution.
