“Having owned veterinary practices during both the SARS and H1N1 swine flu pandemics, I’ve experienced first-hand these legal, ethical, and health challenges firsthand,” Dr. Ward wrote. “While the current coronavirus pandemic is potentially much more severe and wide-reaching than earlier disease outbreaks, I thought it would be helpful to share some of the research and resources we used to navigate these turbulent times.”
Dr. Ward is the founder of Seaside Animal Care in Calabash, North Carolina, owner of the veterinary consulting firm E3 Management and founder of the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention.
