  • 1. Sanitation in shelters’ environment: why simple measures can make such a big difference?
  • 2. Sanitation in shelters Shelters: an at-risk environment The burden of all animal collectivities? INFECTIOUS DISEASES !!!
  • 3. Sanitation in shelters Shelters: an at-risk environment Epidemiological risk: E=N2_ N Epidemiological risk = 2 Epidemiological risk = 12
  • 4. Sanitation in shelters Shelters: an at-risk environment Epidemiological risk 400 350 300 250 200 150 100 50 0 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Number of individuals 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
  • 5. Sanitation in shelters Shelters: a more at-risk environment? Is it different in shelters?  NO What can make it worse? Regular introduction of Daily risk of new animals ... of introducing unknown health status infectious diseases
  • 6. Sanitation in shelters Shelters: a more at-risk environment? What your staff needs to know…
  • 7. Sanitation in shelters Shelters: few words on these common diseases PARVOVIRUS :  Nude virus  EXTREMELY RESISTANT IN THE ENVIRONMENT  CPV2c variant affects both dogs and cats CALICIVIRUS :  Nude virus  Moderatly resistant (but days to months)  Multiple strains, chronic carriers, virulent systemic strain RINGWORM :  Fungi  EXTREMELY RESISTANT IN THE ENVIRONMENT  Asymptomatic carriers, zoonotic disease
  • 8. Sanitation in shelters Shelters: few words on these common diseases How do we fight them in a shelter environment? Do you know this guy?
  • 9. Do you know this guy? 1. 2. 3. 4. Leo di Caprio, the women’s motivator Asclepius, the germ killer Zeus, god of thunder and shelters Lebron James, the Chosen One 25% 1 25% 25% 2 3 25% 4 20 Countdown

  • 11. Hygiene = Prevention = Pro/phylaxis Sanitary prevention • Hygiene • Sectorization • Clean to dirty principle • Facilities Medical prevention • Vermifugation • Vaccination • Tests • ….
  • 12. Hygiene: all about cleaning and disinfecting
  • 13. Sanitation in shelters Hygiene: why it is something essential… Definitely time-consuming! ASV Recommendations: 9 minutes per animal per day for routine cleaning  The cornerstone of the shelter sanitary prophylaxis  Need to be aware of its importance…  Educating the shelter staff about this is a priority…

  • 18. Sanitation in shelters Cleaning vs disinfecting… detergent GOOD CLEANER = GOOD DETERGENT
  • 19. Water is wet but does not have enough wetting power Without detergent  Detergent With detergent increase wetting power
  • 20. Sanitation in shelters Cleaning vs disinfecting… WHY SHOULD IT BE REMINDED?

  • 24. Only clean surfaces can be disinfected
  • 25. Only clean surfaces can be disinfected
  • 26. Sanitation in shelters Cleaning vs disinfecting… 6 main categories: SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE QUATERNARY AMMONIUMS PRACTICAL QUESTIONS: SODIUM DICHLOROISOCYANURATE 1/ DETERGENT ACTIVITY? ACCELERATED 2/ WHICH PATHOGENS ARE TARGETED? HYDROGEN PEROXIDE 3/ CONTACT TIME REQUIRED TO BE EFFECTIVE? POTASSIUM PEROXYMONOSULFATE CALCIUM HYPOCHLORITE
  • 27. Sanitation in shelters Cleaning vs disinfecting… About detergent activity: CATEGORY Sodium hypochlorite (aka bleach) Quaternary ammoniums Potassium Peroxymonosulfate (Virkon®, Trifectant®) Calcium Hypochlorite (Wysiwash®) Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate (Bruclean®) Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (Accel® TB) DETERGENT ACTIVITY?
  • 28. Sanitation in shelters Cleaning vs disinfecting… About the target(s): CATEGORY Parvo Calici Ring worm Giardia Cocc. Sodium hypochlorite (aka bleach) Quaternary ammoniums Optimal concentration may vary Potassium Peroxymonosulfate depending on the pathogen targeted! (Virkon®, Trifectant®) Calcium Hypochlorite (Wysiwash®) Ex with bleach: Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate (Bruclean®) Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (Accel® TB) Parvo 1:32 while Ringworm 1:10
  • 29. Sanitation in shelters Cleaning vs disinfecting… About the contact time: CATEGORY Contact time? Rinsing required? Sodium hypochlorite (aka bleach) At least 10 min YES Quaternary ammoniums At least 10 min YES Optimal contact time may vary Potassium depending on the pathogen targeted! Peroxymonosulfate At least 10 min NO (Virkon®, Trifectant®) Calcium Hypochlorite Ex (Wysiwash®) TB: with Accel Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate (Bruclean®) Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (Accel® TB) At least 2 minutes NO Parvo 1min while Ringworm 10min At least 10 minutes YES From 1 to 5 minutes NO
