Canine Vasectomy
( 1976) McCreery, Sally ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Many people are starting to consider vasectomy as a substitution for castration in the canine species. Vasectomy is indicated in cases where owners do not want to breed the dog due to hereditary problems such as hip dysplasia. Vasectomy does not alter the male hormones has does castration. Young dogs still develop normal male characteristics and there is no problem of weight gain from decreased metabolic rate due to loss of testosterone.

An Evaluation of the Academic Standards Committee
( 1976) Connell, Jim ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

During the 1975-76 academic year the Academic Standards Committee, the so called "Admissions Committee" for the College of Veterinary Medicine, had a student member. In all, ten senior students selected by the Dean served on the committee on a rotating basis. This plan allowed a cross-section of the senior class to participate, yet demanded a minimal amount of time away from their clinic duties. The student member is a non-voting member of the committee but participates to the fullest extent in all the activities of the committee.
