New resources now available at include more tools for communicating with clients, guidance for equine practitioners, and an overview of the international effects of COVID-19 on veterinary medicine:

Free webinar: Temporary sheltering of animals

If temporary sheltering becomes necessary for animals coming from the home of a person with COVID-19, shelters should take safety precautions. Learn about recommended precautions in a new free webinar on AVMA Axon, Interim recommendations for temporary sheltering. The webinar outlines the interim recommendations developed collaboratively by the AVMA, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Shelter Medicine Program, the Association of Shelter Veterinarians, University of California-Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program, University of Florida Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program, and the CDC’s COVID-19 One Health Team. It’s the latest in an ongoing series of free COVID-19 webinars on AVMA Axon.

Coming soon
