  • 02/12/20 Reducing Infection: Updates in Feline URI Management

    Includes Credits Recorded On: 02/12/2020

    Learn about UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program's recent research on environmental and population health risk factors for feline upper respiratory disease in animal shelters.

    The UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program helps shelters reduce feline upper respiratory infection (URI) with integrative science-based solutions.  Whether it's housing modifications and facility design work, or implementation of the Capacity for Care(C4C) management model, shelters are seeing results with less URI, happier cats, better outcomes, and more balanced workloads for staff. The program has recently published research on how cage size and feline movement in and out of housing impacts feline URI, as well as the effects of the C4C model on feline health and outcomes. The researchers will share highlights from their findings, with an emphasis on day-to-day tools that will help prevent shelter cat URI now and into the future. Webinar attendees will: 

    • Become familiar with the basics of Capacity for Care and the role it plays in URI
    • Understand the connection between population management and feline health
    • Learn about the role of length of stay on URI and how everyone can help reduce URI risk in the feline population
    • Be shown that double compartment cage housing can meet the housing needs of most shelter cats – and discover how to achieve this with existing cage housing
    • Understand the essential elements of a “low stress” cage housing set-up
    • Learn humility to overcome those myths and mysterious practices we used to say must be done to prevent URI

    This session is part of the Shelter Medicine series, a collaboration between the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
