"Feline URI: The (Mostly) Avoidable Shelter Disease" with Dr. Erin Doyle
Time & Location
About the Event
Feline URI has long been one of the most common diseases of cats in animal shelters. But the great news is that the more we learn about shelter population management and stress reduction, the more we also learn that feline URI isn’t inevitable for shelter cats. Join us to talk all things feline URI – how does it commonly present, how do we treat it, and, most importantly, how do we prevent it in the first place!
