(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Scientists at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) who work in veterinary medicine are dedicated to keeping animals, including pets and farm animals, healthy. And they have found that when it comes to research, there is strength in numbers.

FDA works with a web of veterinary labs, called the Veterinary Laboratory Investigation and Response Network (Vet-LIRN), to assist one another in detecting potentially harmful substances in animal foods and tissues. FDA research biologist Renate Reimschuessel, pictured above, started Vet-LIRN and has grown the program to 34 state and university veterinary laboratories across the country.
