It can happen in a moment. One cough, one sneeze from an infected pet and your business – and life – can be turned upside down. Your facility may be immaculate, with smart vaccination protocols, but airborne infections, such as dog flu, require more than surface cleaning and vaccines. This session tackles the science of airborne pathogens, the health impact on pets AND staff, and how sanitizing the air is key to infectious disease prevention and control.

In a clear and understandable way, attendees will learn:

  • How airborne pathogens “work” – how they become airborne, how they spread disease, and how surprisingly long – and not limited to floating in the air – their “lifespan” can be.
  • How germs and pathogens can – and can’t – be effectively eliminated.
  • A smart and doable strategy to tackle infectious disease prevention and control at their facility.
