12/04/19 Medical Aspects of Companion Animal Transport Programs
Recorded On: 12/04/2019
Learn about best practices in medical oversight of companion animal transport programs. The role of the veterinarian and veterinary team start at the planning stages of a transport program, with a need for robust medical protocols at all stages in the transport process. We'll review how to implement effective shelter medicine practices to mitigate disease risk in transport programs and how to use a strong communication system to troubleshoot any medical concerns that arise.
This session is part of the Best Practices Webinar Series: Companion Animal Transport (2019) AND part of the Shelter Medicine series, a collaboration between the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
