Webinar – 6/26/24 – Advancements in Neonatal Kitten Care – Maddie’s Fund

June 26 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PDT

Advancements in Neonatal Kitten Care

Neonatal kitten care has seen significant advancements over the last decade. At the same time, social media had created thousands of influencers sharing information on the best ways to save these little ones. This information is often conflicting. In 2023, several major shelter medicine programs and animal advocacy groups updated their guidelines for caring for neonatal kittens which added even more confusion and debate about the best ways to care underage kittens.

Join Dr. Julie Levy and Marnie Russ for a review of these changes and clarification about feeding schedules, weaning age, temperature regulation, euthanasia rates, medical interventions, combining litters, socialization, and adoption. Come away knowing how you and your shelter can provide neonatal kittens with the best possible care.

This webinar has been pre-approved for 1.0 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement and by the National Animal Care & Control Association. It has also been submitted for approval for 1 hour of continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize the Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) approval.

Guest Speakers:

Dr. @Julie Levy, Fran Marino Distinguished Professor of Shelter Medicine Education at the
University of Florida

@Marnie Russ, National Kitten College Program Administrator, National Kitten College/Animal Welfare League of Arlington
