Within the provision of veterinary care, great attention must be given to minimizing the stress that an animal suffers. Stress over which an animal has no control is severely detrimental to the emotional well-being of the individual, and compromises all the processes that we endeavor to support with veterinary care: healing, recovery from illness, and physiological stability.</p> </div> Dogs & Cats Dogs & Cats Animal welfare cats dogs Other Fri, 14 Feb 2014 20:59:16 +0000 rbartlett 99319 at http://www.ifaw.org Rabies: Risks and Prevention http://www.ifaw.org/united-states/resource-centre/rabies-risks-and-prevention <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Fri, 02/14/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p>A practical guide to understanding the risks and prevention of rabies in people and dogs.</p> </div> Dogs & Cats Dogs & Cats Other Fri, 14 Feb 2014 21:04:41 +0000 rbartlett 99320 at http://www.ifaw.org Stakeholder Engagement: Why is it important for Humane and Sustainable Dog and Cat Management? http://www.ifaw.org/united-states/resource-centre/stakeholder-engagement-why-it-important-humane-and-sustainable-dog-and-cat-managemen <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Mon, 06/24/2013</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p>IFAW believes that community participation is essential to the development and implementation of a successful project. Engaging stakeholders in the planning and implementation of strategies to humanely manage their community&rsquo;s dog or cat population requires a commitment.
