Book Description

May 10 2004 0813824486 978-0813824482 1
The ASPCA National Shelter Outreach Program estimates there are 4000-6000 animal shelters in the United States. As the U.S. moves toward reducing the number of animals euthanized in its shelters, access to informed medical care and sound management procedures becomes increasingly critical.

Veterinary schools have recently begun offering courses in shelter medicine. This premier text, dedicated to the field of shelter medicine, is a welcome addition to veterinary literature. This text will prove helpful to veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and other veterinary health professionals seeking job opportunities outside of the traditional veterinary practice, research, and industry venues. Shelter professionals will also want this reference text in their library.

In addition to issues of epidemiology, Shelter Medicine for Veterinarians and Staff, also addresses issues like feral cat programs, basic sanitation, shelter design, cruelty investigations and euthanasia. This book is the first ever to involve principles of herd health management in companion animal species in shelters.

Product Description

Review

"The editors of this book have done a commendable job in providing a comprehensive and informative text that has something for all who work in shelter medicine. While much of the text is directed at veterinarians, other shelter staff members can use this text as a good reference to help improve conditions at their shelter." (The Vin Store, August 2010)

"My primary interest in this book was the section on animal cruelty and its links to interpersonal violence, and I was most impressed. Chapters about animal abuse, the links, medical evaluation and documentation of animal abuse, veterinary forensics, equine abuse and animal fighting are extremely informative and truly ground breaking." (The Latham Letter, spring 2006)

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful Text, In-depth scientific information April 15 2008
By Amy Marks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This textbook is certainly useful for people involved in animal shelters and rescue groups. It offers detailed, in-depth information about many aspects of animal sheltering. Don't expect cookbook formulas for the beginner though. Shelter medicine is a complex subject with no easy answers, and this is a text aimed at veterinarians and trained staff, so it contains some detailed scientific and medical information. It is a helpful and insightful resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shelter Medicine For Veterinarians and Staff Sept. 3 2008
By Judy Lancaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Well-written and concise, this manual is an invaluable tool for any shelter organization to have as a reference. Shelter medicine is an area where there are not many publications available. This manual helps to fill that void in the literature with a wealth of information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Just For Shelter Staff Oct. 12 2011
By Sara McGaughy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
People who aren't involved with shelters/animal rescue occasionally criticize the efforts of those who are. They may question the value of helping animals when so many human beings are also in need of help. I'd like those people to read this book, specifically the section on the link between animal cruelty and human violence. The shelters that I support do an excellent job of helping animals directly (by providing food, medical care, shelter, etc.) and also sponsporing community outreach and education programs, which ultimately benefit both humans and animals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource July 18 2008
By M. Fooshee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For the shelter veterianarian just starting out or those that have been practicing a long time. There are no current quality resource textbooks available for shelter veterinarians. It covers all the animal species most likely to be encountered in a shelter enviroment and all aspects of shelter medicine management. This book is a valuable addition to any shelter veterinarian's library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Professional Reference for Animal Shelters April 28 2009
By Harold A. Geller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a professional reference for animal handlers and veterinarian assistants at animal shelters. It is an edited volume with an excellent index. There are lots of statistics for all types of animals, including exotic pets that occasionally show up at shelters. This is a desk reference that should be available at all shelters, for both veterinarians and their staff, as the title alludes.
