My teaching interests include training of veterinary students, graduate students,
interns, and residents, promoting active learning in the classroom and clinics, and
continuing education of veterinarians, veterinary nurses, and general public. My clinical
interests are in internal medicine with emphasis on urology and nephrology. I am also
interested in clinical nutrition with emphasis on the role of nutrition in the management
of diseases. My research interests include: urinary tract disease particularly
urolithiasis, urinary tract infections, kidney failure and idiopathic lower urinary tract
disease in cats, role of nutrition in prevention of disease, diseases of the urinary
system with special emphasis on development and evaluation of models of disease, and
nutrition and metabolism with emphasis on obesity, hepatic lipidosis, and disorders of
lipid metabolism.
