The Association of Shelter Veterinarians’ Board of Directors has developed the following Informational Documents (Info Docs) as a freely-available resource on topics relevant to the practice of shelter medicine. These documents serve to supplement our Position Statements and provide referenced background information where appropriate and available. Info Docs undergo a rigorous drafting and review process according to ASV standard operating procedures, including independent expert review, prior to publication and are reviewed at a minimum of once every 5 years.
