Canine Cough and Canine Influenza are now common occurrences in most pet care facilities. In fact, they’re nearly as common as the common cold in human daycares. This certification course has the most up to date information and is designed for pet care facility owners, managers, and staff to educate them on the causes, prevention and treatment of these illnesses, as well as how to respond to an outbreak.
Causes of Bordetella, Parainfluenza, Adenovirus, and Influenza will be explored, and attendees will learn about the transmission and symptoms of each. A look into how veterinarians diagnose and treat these diseases will help attendees identify and understand them, and also learn about the different vaccine types, their effectiveness, and the latest facility disinfection protocols.
Outbreak response & management will also be covered, and attendees will learn what to do when there are active cases of these diseases in their communities, how to respond to an outbreak in their facilities, and learn the best prevention methods as well as how & when to contact veterinarians and pet parents.
Valuable handouts and a certificate of completion will be sent to you upon completion of the course, including: How, when, and why to notify pet parents when a disease is confirmed in your area or facility, Canine Cough handouts for pet parents and employees, Canine Flu handouts for pet parents and employees, Daily cleaning & disinfecting charts, and Outbreak response protocols.
