Professional Pet Boarding Infectious Disease Management Certification

Laura Laaman & Dr. Nikhil Joshi

Canine parvovirus, Bordetella, canine Influenza, and distemper are all terms that we would prefer to never hear mentioned in our facility, but unfortunately cases of these infectious diseases are sometimes inevitable. However, instead of always being reactive when it comes to an infectious disease case or outbreak in your facility, be proactive and do your best to prevent these situations from ever occurring! Give your clients peace of mind that their pets will be safe and healthy in your facility by being armed with the most up-to-date information on prevention and management of these feared diseases.

Join infectious disease expert Dr. Nikhil Joshi and pet care business expert Laura Laaman for this four-hour certification course where you will learn about the common types of infectious diseases in both dogs and cats, with a deeper dive into canine parvovirus and leptospirosis, as well as which diseases are preventable through the use of vaccines, and how to develop good cleaning and sanitation protocols to help prevent disease transmission.

In addition, outbreak response and management will also be covered, including what to do when there are active cases of these diseases in your community, how to respond to an outbreak in your facility, the best prevention methods, as well as how and when to contact veterinarians and pet parents.

Upon completion of this course, attendees will be mailed a certificate stating they are certified in Professional Pet Boarding Infectious Disease Management. This course is ideal for owners, managers, and staff members alike!
