    During this session, you’ll learn about the evolution of behavior in animal shelters. What lessons can we learn from how we did things in the past? How do we live for today and support the animals in our care? And how can we work towards a better future?

    Animal Shelters have been housing animals for over 100 years. Supporting the behavioral health of our canine and feline companions in the shelter environment is something that has been, is and will always be a challenge. In addition, many of us are overwhelmed by the sheer number of animals (especially big dogs) in our care. How do we do our best to help animals while also protecting public safety?

    In this lecture, Dr. Dan Lopez reviews the principles of wound management from a clinical perspective.

    In this session, we will review the principles of wound management from a clinical perspective. We will utilize the 3 stages (and substages) of wound healing as a framework to help understand why we perform certain interventions (eg. debridement, honey dressings, bandages, etc.) at certain times, and review guidelines for when we need to surgically intervene. Attendees will gain an increased understanding of decision making surrounding open wound management.
