Deploying to Help with Large Animals During a Disaster - What to Expect
A large animal veterinarian can assist during a disaster in many ways. When we think of wildfires, we imagine burns and smoke problems. But much of what veterinary professionals can do to help is similar to what is seen in private practice: wounds, mild colics, nutritional needs, housing-related health factors, biosecurity, and more. In the disaster setting, you work with the incident command system and often help with things at the site for sheltering the evacuated horses. During this hour, Dr. Madigan will share his experiences in various deployments.
