Infectious Disease Management in Animal Shelters (Paperback)

£87.50
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Since the publication of the first edition of Infectious Disease Management in Animal Shelters in 2009, research and practice in the field of shelter medicine have advanced significantly. This updated second edition of that seminal work provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to preventing, managing, and treating infectious diseases affecting cats, dogs and exotic small companion mammals in animal shelters.





Throughout the book, the authors-noted experts on the topic-bridge the gap between medicine (both individual and group) and management. The book is filled with practical strategies that draw on the latest research and evidence-based medicine as well as the authors' personal experience in the field. While the text highlights strategies for the prevention of illness and mitigation of disease spread, the book also contains practical information on treatment and considerations for adoption. This important text:











Offers the only book dedicated to the topic of infectious disease management in shelters



Presents guidelines for general management and disease prevention and control in cats and dogs



Includes shelter medicine's core principles of humane population management in the context of supporting shelters' goals for preserving welfare, saving lives and protecting human health



Contains a new chapter on exotic companion mammals







Written for shelter veterinarians, managers, and workers, the revised second edition of Infectious Disease Management in Animal Shelters is the only book to focus exclusively on infectious diseases in the shelter setting, blending individual animal care with a unique herd health perspective.
