Feline distemper, panleukopenia, feline parvovirus — no matter what name you know it by, this is a disease of tremendous importance.
Panleukopenia is a highly contagious viral disease that can cause serious, even fatal, illness in infected cats. Although panleuk can be a problem year-round, the busy spring and summer months bring more kittens and a greater risk of the disease. Panleuk’s severity, the ease with which it is spread and its persistence in the environment, make it a significant infectious concern for all cats in animal shelters.
In this free, 90-minute webinar, we’ll provide the basics on panleukopenia to help you minimize the risk and impact on cats in your care. Our discussion will focus on preventive strategies and developing solid protocols for management in animal shelters and foster homes. Plus, you’ll receive a brief overview of panleuk treatment options too.
