About This Discussion:
As featured in the New York Times article, "Dog Flu is Back, Too", many organizations (including shelters, private practice boarding and veterinary clinics) are currently facing outbreaks of Canine Influenza Virus (CIV). Operation Kindness worked closely with the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-M) on protocols and testing, but also realized this virus was different in the way it spread and needed to be addressed. On this call, hear from leading disease outbreak response expert, Dr. Sandra Newbury, Director of Shelter Medicine at UW-M, and two shelters she recently worked with in Texas (Operation Kindness and Dallas Animal Services).
