Quarantine / Isolation
Shelters, animal control facilities and veterinarians nurse sick animals back to health every day.
While ensuring appropriate care of the affected animal is critical, these pets must also be kept isolated from the healthy animals so their diseases don’t spread. Housing animals in humane conditions promotes both physical and emotional healing. One sick animal whose pathogens escape and infect the rest of facility can cause disease to spread and even result in needless euthanasia.
