11 Questions

From the minute a dog or cat sets paw inside an animal control vehicle or shelter, the clock is ticking on decisions, procedures and practices that can spell health or illness – even life or death – for that animal. I  this presentation, given at the 2012 Maddie's Shelter Medicine Conference at University of Florida, Dr. Brian DiGangi, Clinical Assistant Professor of Shelter Medicine at the University of Florida, explains how decisions made in that first critical hour impact a sheltered animal's stress response and susceptibility to disease. He also speaks to how you can use that time to maximize the life-saving capacity of your organization.
