Shelter Medicine, Animal News, Product of the Week
In this episode, host Dr. Mondrian Contreras joins his colleagues, Dr. Elaine McCarthy, Dr. Robbie Unsell, and Vet Tech Tim Hayes, to break down the top animal-related news, including wet market debate, bats and COVID, COVID sniffing dogs, and COVID effects on environment. Dr. Contreras interviews Shelter Medicine veterinarian Dr. Natalie Isaza. Dr. Isaza is a renowned expert in the field of Shelter Medicine. Shelter Medicine has gone through a huge evolution in terms of how shelters are able to care for pets, how much they focus on behavior, and the amount of research being done; these have all helped to increase the standard of care and have increased the frequency of pets getting adopted into families. Dr. Isaza discusses this and some of the changes to come in Shelter Medicine. Dr. Contreras will finish up the episode with the Product of the Week.
