Infection prevention and control is a critical component of good medicine, human or veterinary. However, veterinary infection control is a very small and underdeveloped field, and good resources for veterinary personnel are limited. To help advance this important field, a comprehensive infection control document entitled "Infection Prevention and Control Best Practices for Small Animal Veterinary Clinics" has been developed by the crew at WormsAndGermsBlog and colleagues at the Ontario Veterinary College. This document is a comprehensive overview of infection control practices and has been designed as a resource for all small animal veterinary clinics. The document can be downloaded by clicking here or through the Worms & Germs Resources page.
This effort was sponsored by the Canadian Committee on Antibiotic Resistance and the guidelines have been endorsed by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and University of Guelph Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses.
