Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a book that can help you better understand the fundamental nature of wellness and disease (and how to support the former and prevent or control the latter). I've placed it on my ‘essentials' bookshelf." (The Vin Store, March 02, 2010)

"This is an important addition to the literature, helping to remedy the general lack of comprehensive references devoted to the specialty of shelter medicine and providing a must-have resource for all those involved in the care of sheltered dogs and cats." (Doody's, December 2009)

“Every shelter needs a copy of this information on hand for reference.” (Book News, September 2009)

Best book I have found about infectious disease management. Contains a section for each disease (Feline Calcivirus, Feline Herpes virus) and contains valuable information about sanitation. For example the use of quaternary ammonium compounds versus the use of bleach or potassium peroxymonosulfate (trifectant and virkon). And it also talks about how to wash hands the right way, how to handle animals, fomite transmission and difference between enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.

Veterinarians working with animal shelters quickly begin to realize that maintaining the physical and psychological health of shelter animals can be extremely challenging. This book covers the basic principles of disease management in shelters with emphasis on preventative measures.I am not aware of any other book that addresses these issues with such depth.

Along with "Shelter Medicine for Veterinarians and Staff" I think this text is essential for veterinarians working with shelters in any capacity.

I have had this book stolen from me at least three times now...most likely by vets who have worked here in the past. I guess that is a pretty good endorsement:) expensive, yet good!
