This talk will address steps every facility should take to protect themselves from dog infections and outbreaks, breaking down key protocols and approaches to allow for immediate implementation in your facility.

Key takeaways from this session:

  • Protocols and approaches to adopt in your facility to avoid outbreaks and closures
