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.
Dr. Newbury is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine with a special interest in infectious disease and population management as it relates to group health.

She also serves as the Chair of the Shelter Standards Task Force of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and as Adjunct Assistant Professor of Shelter Medicine in the Department of Pathobiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine.
