include providing live outcomes for pets who do not have owners or must be rehomed and reuniting lost pets with their owners. The rate of live outcomes, also known as live release rate, is often used as a benchmark, with a rate of 90% or greater generally targeted, as it suggests that animals are not euthanized for population management. It is also important that modern animal shelters provide a high standard of animal welfare for animals within the shelter’s care and engage constructively and collaboratively with their community. Learn about how shelters have adapted and the best practices that help them to meet these goals. ALPHA NO MORE: A DISCUSSION OF LEARNING LIVES WORTH LIVING: POSITIVE WELFARE FOR SHELTER ANIMALS Rachael Kreisler, VMD, MSCE, DACVPM (Epidemiology) 3:00 PM - 3:50 PM | Room 214 B Too dominant or too delicate? Cesar 9-11 vs. It's Me or the Dog? Clickers or Shock Collars? The world of veterinary behavior medicine has a large disconnect from the general public and as veterinary behavior professionals, we need the general practice veterinary team at the forefront of the war for the least aversive pet training methods possible. In this lecture, attendees will learn the difference between the four quadrents of learning and will also understand why veterinary behavior professionals recommend the usage of two out of four. Attendees will leave equipt with education on why pack theroy is no longer relevant, why aversive training techniques can increase aggression, and understand why utilizing positive reinforcement is the best practice for pet training. ACCESS TO VETERINARY CARE Rachael Kreisler, VMD, MSCE, DACVPM 4:30 PM - 5:20 PM | Room 214 B Pets are considered important family members for most of the 68% of American pet owning households. Unfortunately, the cost of veterinary care is out of reach for millions of families with pets. The lack of access to veterinary care threatens the wellbeing of pets and their families. Access to Veterinary care encompasses any work that makes veterinary care more universal and equitable and considers individual pet and family circumstances with compassion and respect, to improve welfare and decrease suffering. Inability to provide veterinary care to animals that have a treatable medical condition is also a source of stress and burn out for veterinarians and veterinary technicians. Learn about some approaches that veterinary medicine is taking to help tackle this complex problem. LIVES WORTH LIVING: POSITIVE WELFARE FOR SHELTER ANIMALS Rachel Lees, LVMT 2:00 PM - 2:50 PM | Room 007 CD The revised Association of Shelter Veterinarian (ASV Guidelines) utilize a positive welfare framework that emphasizes the critical need to provide animals with opportunities for positive experiences, as alleviation of suffering alone does not necessarily result in good welfare. This session will provide an overview of the Five Domains and positive welfare and the strong focus on mental wellbeing to help ensure shelter animals have “lives worth living.” Key recommendations from all sections of the Guidelines will be used to highlight and demonstrate the application of this framework and how shelters can take immediate steps to provide animals with more positive experiences. STRANGER THINGS! UNDERSTANDING THE PUPPY'S POINT OF VIEW DURING THE SOCIALIZATION PERIOD Rachel Lees, LVMT 3:00 PM - 3:50 PM | Room 007 CD The socialization period of a puppy is between the ages of 3-12 weeks of age. During this time, puppies are learning how to exist as dogs in the ever changing human world. Veterinary professionals attending will learn how to understand normal puppy interactions with puppies, other species, sounds, objects and environments. They will become educated on how a behaviorally normal puppy sees the world at this time, while also learning what to do with more behaviorally abnormal puppies

during this time and how to intervene as comfortably as possible. BIPPITY BOPPITY BOO: THE MAGIC OF BEHAVIORAL MANAGEMENT Rachel Lees, LVMT 4:30 PM - 5:20 PM | Room 007 CD In this lecture, general practice veterinary teams will learn basic management techniques that can be given to clients dealing with a behavior case that shows up at their clinic. Veterinary and Veterinary Technician Programs cut a large amount of behavioral care out of their syllabus due to time constraints so not every individual is comfortable treating behavioral cases. This lecture can help give some useful safety, prevention and management techniques to keep the client, animal and the public out of harms way until they can be seen by a veterinary behaviorist in their area. A goal in this lecture is to create teamwork with the referring clinic and the specialty group. Behavioral management is crucial to each treatment plan, even if it's not the "glamorous" part of the training process. Learn how to give your clients and patients the best behavioral recommendations possible while not overstepping your own boundaries.

MODERN ANIMAL SHELTERING Rachael Kreisler, VMD, MSCE, DACVPM (Epidemiology) 2:00 PM - 2:50 PM | Room 214 B

ALL BLEEDING EVENTUALLY STOPS Kelly Cronin, MBA, PHR, CVT, VTS (ECC) 8:00 AM - 8:50 AM | Room 007 AB

Animal shelters in the United States were historically created with the primary objective of protecting human health, particularly from rabies. Shelter facilities and protocols, particularly those operated by municipalities, were designed to accommodate stray animals (those that have strayed from home and become lost or that have been abandoned) for a brief holding period followed by euthanasia for unclaimed animals (“catch and kill”). Animal shelters have evolved dramatically over the past few decades. The goals of a modern animal shelter now

All bleeding eventually stops, but in this discussion, we will discuss what to do with a bleeding patient. We will cover types of bleeding and hallmark symptoms. We will discuss laboratory testing associated with blood loss. We will discuss early interventions and full treatment plans as well as monitoring parameters. We will briefly cover transfusion medicine.
