How can you protect the animals in your shelter from infectious diseases like canine parvovirus without closing your doors entirely during an outbreak? In this video snippet, taken from a lecture on ringworm, Dr. Sandra Newbury, explains how a "clean break" can stop the spread of disease in its tracks. This presentation was part of the University of Florida's Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Program Track at the 2013 No More Homeless Pets National Conference.
