A Good Place

Dr. Laurie Meythaler-Mullins (’08)
A dozen sled dogs are hooked to a fence as veterinarian Laurie Meythaler-Mullins runs her hands over the backs, legs, paws, flanks and bellies of these canine athletes. “Just getting a good feel of their abdomen, their organs. Does anything feel enlarged. Everything feels pretty normal,” she says. Meythaler-Mullins is looking for minor injuries or irregularities that could cause problems as the dogs run 300 miles in cold temperatures in the K300 Sled Dog Race in Bethel, Alaska.
