Advancements in shelter medicine have led to significant improvements in animal welfare. With those advancements have come new evidence-based strategies for combating infectious diseases and illnesses in shelter animals, which have significantly reduced the need for euthanasia.
Written for shelter veterinarians, managers, and workers, the second edition of Infectious Disease Management in Animal Shelters blends individual animal care with a unique herd health perspective.
Editors Dr. Lila Miller, retired ASPCA Vice President of Shelter Medicine; Dr. Stephanie Janeczko, ASPCA Vice President of Shelter Medicine; and Dr. Kate Hurley, director of the Koret Shelter Medicine Program at UC Davis, have teamed up to provide a current and comprehensive guide to prevent, manage, and treat infectious diseases in shelter animals.
The authors—noted experts on the topic—bridge the gap between caring for individual animals and protecting group animal health. The book is filled with practical strategies that draw on the latest research and evidence-based medicine and the authors’ personal experience in the field.
