15 Daily Animal Monitoring GOALS Monitor animal s health parameters - Eating, urination, defecation, signs of illness or behavior problems Provide medical staff with information regarding animal s current and past condition Assist in early identification of health/behavioral concerns/changes 15

16 16 Rounds must be conducted at least once every 24 hours by a trained individual in order to visually observe and monitor the health and well-being of every animal. Monitoring should include food and water consumption, urination, defecation, attitude, behavior, ambulation, and signs of illness or other problems... Any animal that is observed to be experiencing pain; suffering or distress; rapidly deteriorating health; life-threatening problems; or suspect zoonotic medical conditions must be assessed and appropriately managed in a timely manner.

21 GOALS Veterinarian performs to: Medical Rounds Respond to problems identified - During daily population management rounds - By staff/volunteers and communicated on dry erase board, clipboard Examine animals and develop diagnostic/treatment plan Evaluate animals receiving treatment to determine if treatment can be discontinued 21

22 Medical Rounds Veterinary Technicians Depending on state veterinary practice act, may be able to triage animals to determine when need examination by veterinarian and when protocols written by veterinarian can be followed. 22

27 27 Difficulty tracking which animals need what services

28 Difficulty tracking which animals need what services Animals wait for placement with rescue organization or in foster care 28

33 If we can increase efficiency in shelter processes and decrease animal length of stay... What will this allow? 33

34 If we can increase efficiency in shelter processes and decrease animal length of stay... What will this allow? Decreased daily inventory (# animals in shelter) 34

35 If we can increase efficiency in shelter processes and decrease animal length of stay... What will this allow? Decreased daily inventory (# animals in shelter) Decreased incidence of infectious disease 35

36 If we can increase efficiency in shelter processes and decrease animal length of stay... What will this allow? Decreased daily inventory (# animals in shelter) Decreased incidence of infectious disease Decreased stress on animals and staff 36

37 If we can increase efficiency in shelter processes and decrease animal length of stay... What will this allow? Decreased daily inventory (# animals in shelter) Decreased incidence of infectious disease Decreased stress on animals and staff Increased time to provide enrichment & behavior modification for individual animals 37

38 If we can increase efficiency in shelter processes and decrease animal length of stay... What will this allow? Decreased daily inventory (# animals in shelter) Decreased incidence of infectious disease Decreased stress on animals and staff Increased time to provide enrichment & behavior modification for individual animals Perhaps allow each animal to have larger space 38

39 If we can increase efficiency in shelter processes and decrease animal length of stay... May allow shelter to provide care for an additional number of animals. However, may NOT increase the overall number of animals that are adopted or have live outcomes. 39

40 40 Population management describes an active process of planning, on-going daily evaluation, and response to changing conditions as an organization cares for multiple animals. Effective population management requires a plan for intentionally managing each animal s shelter stay that takes into consideration the organization s ability to provide care that meets the recommendations outlined in this document.

42 Population Management Rounds Often when the only or first thing a shelter does is implement daily rounds, we see dramatic improvement in shelter operations. Performing daily rounds allows a shelter to determine what protocols and live outcome resources need to be enhanced or initiated. (Sandra Newbury Daily Rounds: How to Decrease Length of Stay ASPCApro.org Webinar) 42
