Medical Treatment for Dogs on a Shoestring Budget

February 2015 by Alexis Bardzinski, DVM, and Jordana Estrada

Audience: Executive Leadership, Veterinary Team

Video Length: 42 minutes

Since Austin Pets Alive! takes almost any animal from the open intake city shelter, regardless of medical issue, we see many diseases in dogs.  We will talk through the worst one, Distemper, as well as others like broken bones, mange, upper respiratory infections, orthopedic issues and much more.  This clinic stretches every dollar as far as possible to save lives and never falls back on killing to solve a problem. This presentation was part of the American Pets Alive! 2015 No-Kill Conference.
