37-78% of the pet owners do not give preventatives to their cats or dogs… While we do have efficient options to prevent certain infectious diseases, our main problem is that most pet owners don’t use them at all!

I really love this time of the year.

It’s in the air : hope, love, joy, happiness… Everything slows down for a moment. We put our grieves aside and focus on what is really important: spending great moments with family and friends. Again, I really love this time of the year.

One thing I’m really not good at ? When traveling, coping with the jet-lag. I arrived yesterday in Tokyo for a series of lectures on shelter medicine. I will be picked up by my japanese colleague at around 9am later today… and I’ve been wide-awake since 12am… Now that I feel confident that I will not find any more sleep, I thought I should go for something entertaining: let’s go blogging !

I spend a lot of time in my online universe these days, but when I come back to the « real world » to deliver a talk on one of the topic I feel most passionate about, well, it simply feels great! Lately, I delivered several times our « Young & Hungry : our 2016 shelter guide on neonatology. » lecture.This one was created to discuss with shelter staff & foster families how to properly handle newborn kittens & puppies. Because one thing I can tell you: many mistakes that are done in this field could, for sure, have been prevented. Let me give you an example.

When we work or volunteer in an animal shelter, there is only one goal we all lean towards : we want all of the dogs and cats in our care to be adopted. We want all of them find a new home where they can live happily ever after. All we do somehow plays a role in leading to this very moment : when the dog, or the cat, finally finds their new owner and walks through the shelter doors.

Some might think that scientific communication is « only » about… communication. Somebody creates a powerpoint, gives it to you and you just have to show up and elaborate on what appears on screen. Well, let me tell you : fortunately, there is a little bit more of creativity involved here !

[BLOG] Have you heard Candyce’s story ?

blog shelter

Lecturing is part of the job of a scientific communication officer. We hit the road and we share knowledge. As much as we can. And that feels great ! The best part in my opinion ? The preliminary phase, when you work on this message you want to deliver. Because I don’t think we should sum it up to filling PowerPoint slides with bullet points and text…

Great talks use stories to give life to their message. And my colleague Dr Bob Clement recently shared with me a great one : the story of Candyce the cat. Together we turned it into a presentation we recently delivered during an animal shelter conference.

If you want to get a a better idea, I let you take a look at the slides here :
