Each year, the University of Wisconsin and University of California Davis Shelter Medicine programs coordinate a visit to a shelter as part of their Veterinary Fellowship camp week. The fellows of the camp visit a shelter to observe its operations and give ideas on new actions to implement at the shelter or ideas on updating current practices.
This year, Operation Kindness was the shelter chosen for the fellows’ visit. The goal of the visit was to consult on how to shorten medical stays for our shelter animals, specifically cats with ringworm. The fellows also advised on Operation Kindness’ disease protocols for contagious illnesses. After two days of observations and visits, the UW and UC Davis Shelter Medicine fellows presented their findings to the Operation Kindness staff. We’re so appreciative to be chosen by such a great team of professionals! Thanks so much for your visit.
