Texas A&M sent a veterinary emergency team to help provide care to livestock affected by the recent wildfire

Recovery efforts are still ongoing as rural communities in the Texas panhandle regroup following the heartbreaking Smokehouse Creek Wildfires that spanned that region of the Lone Star State. While the wildfire has been completely contained at this point, the devastating aftermath remains.

A team of staff and students from Texas A&M University’s School of Veterinary Medicine recently spent ten days in the area providing veterinary care to those in need.

Director of the Texas A&M Veterinary Emergency Team, Dr. Deb Zoran spoke with RFD-TV’s own Suzanne Alexander on livestock conditions, challenges they faced, and the impact of the fire.
