Vet Clin North Am Small Anim Pract. 2005 Jan;35(1):21-37. doi: 10.1016/j.cvsm.2004.08.002.


No single factor determines whether a population remains healthy or disease rages out of control. All host and environmental factors taken together provide a number of tools to protect the vulnerable feline shelter population,however. A well-conceived infectious disease control program contributes to improved public perception, increased adoptions, and a healthier feline population within the shelter and in the community in general.
