In this, my first and only year as co-editor of the ISU Veterinarian, I would like to take the time to thank several people who have had a hand in helping us through. First and foremost, I have to give many, many thanks to Neil for being here and doing more work than I would have had the time, knowledge or energy to do. His knowledge of layout and style far surpasses my meager experience in journalism. Secondly, I need to thank Dr. Dean Riedesel and Dr. Claudia Baldwin for their help in reviewing the major papers in this issue on short notice, Also, thank you to Dr. Elizabeth Riedesel for your Radiographic Diagnosis. We appreciate your efforts in putting the information together for this issue. Finally, I would also like to credit our illustrious leader, Dr. John Greve, for all the work he has done recently as well as in the past in the name of the ISU Veterinarian.

Since their creation nearly 60 years ago, the terra cotta tile of the Veterinary Medicine Mural by Christian Petersen have been marred by water damage. Terra cotta is highly porous and over the years, water has accumulated between the mural and the concrete walls. Subsequently, water and salts have been seeping out through the terra cotta, gradually damaging the sculpture.
