Join us as we discuss an evidence-based approach to caring for underage kittens in the shelter setting. We’ll review the strengths and challenges of current practices in the field, walk through existing literature, and learn about new data on kitten mortality risk factors. We’ll compile this information into strategies you can use for managing underage kittens in your clinics, shelters, and rescues.
