Heroes for Healthy Pets™ Module 3:
Impact of Respiratory Pathogens
in Dogs and Humans
About This Webinar
The Heroes for Healthy Pets certification program was created to help veterinary professionals and pet businesses create facilities dedicated to being disease-free. The program is co-sponsored by the International Boarding and Pet Services Association, the National Association of Veterinary Technicians, Pet Sitters International, VETgirl, and Barkleigh Productions and is powered by Nobivac® vaccines. This presentation objective:
- The importance of herd immunity, vaccination, social distancing, and isolation in stopping the spread of respiratory pathogens in pets and humans
- Challenges associated with diagnosing respiratory pathogens and how they can alter the perceived prevalence of canine influenza in the dog population
- How to deal with and prevent outbreaks of respiratory disease in your practice or facility
To become certified, the veterinary or pet professional must view Module 1: Understanding Infectious Diseases, and Module 2: Effective Infectious Disease Control, and then pass a certification exam. The program also provides up to three hours of RACE approved continuing education credit for veterinary professionals, three hours of PACCC approved continuing education units for pet professionals, and three hours of CPPS continuing education for pet sitters.
