Harry, a 12-year-old cat, underwent cutting-edge neurosurgery in Britain to remove a pituitary tumor that was making him larger than normal and causing refractory diabetes. The surgery was successful, and it provides pieces of medical information that add to the growing knowledge base accumulating under the umbrella of One Health. Fostered by the AVMA, the One Health Initiative is a global effort to merge veterinary and human health professionals with other scientific disciplines to identify and study the overlap between human and animal disease and improve overall public health.
