||Jessica Hoffman's work on the effect of
sterilization on dog mortality has just appeared
in PLOS ONE. This project was done in collaboration with
Kate Creevy, our friend and colleague in the UGA Vet School. We

different spectrum of diseases than intact dogs, even after
controlling for the effects of age.
