Feline upper respiratory infection (URI) is a persistent challenge for many shelters. Proper cleaning, appropriate vaccination practices and, most importantly, housing and handling to minimize stress can lead to a dramatic reduction in feline URI while simultaneously improving well-being.
By the end of this 60-minute webinar, you will develop an understanding about:
Why preventing feline URI is more effective than treating it
Effective ways to help reduce feline stress and URI prevalence in the shelter setting
Recommendations for treatment and management of feline URI that are proven to work
This webinar is best suited for director of operations, shelter managers, shelter vets and rescue organizations who care for cats.
