Fighting Fungus in Cats

February 2015 by Brittany Dell'Aglio-Mitchell

Audience: Executive Leadership, Shelter/Rescue Staff & Volunteers, Veterinary Team

Video Length: 26 minutes

Tens of thousands of cats are euthanized each year solely because they have been diagnosed with ringworm, a highly contagious but highly treatable skin infection about as serious as Athlete’s Foot. Learn how to set up a ward where affected kitties can be isolated from other animal populations and treated until they are cleared of the disease and ready for adoption. Presented by Brittany Dell’Aglio-Mitchell, this program was part of the American Pets Alive! 2015 No-Kill Conference.
