Dr. Shirene Cece and Dr. Cathy Anderson, both Michigan licensed veterinarians who specialize in shelter medicine, will team teach the two-day workshop for staff of Michigan registered animal shelters. Topics covered will include: understanding how euthanasia drugs work, calculating dosages, humane restraint techniques, appropriate administration, managing euthanasia related compassion stress, etc. This training meets and exceeds the minimum requirement for euthanasia technician training as outlined in Michigan law (Public Health Code Act 738 Section 733). NOTE: This course does NOT require participants to euthanize an animal. Additional practice under the direction of a veterinarian is strongly recommended before applying for certification.
