Triage and Emergency Care

in the Shelter Setting

Speaker: Dr. Taylor Yurick, DVM, OSU VMC Urgent Care at Dublin    

Wednesday, March 20, 2024

Noon - 1:00 p.m. on Zoom

Pet emergencies are daunting without the added stress of questions related to ownership, medical history, and pathway planning. This hour-long webinar will review triage in the shelter setting for non-medical team members, evaluating which animals need veterinary care immediately and what to do until this care can be provided. Additionally, prognostic indicators of common conditions will be discussed that can aid in decision making and pathway planning. 


Dr. Taylor Yurick is a graduate from The Ohio State University with a background in shelter and emergency medicine. Dr. Yurick started her career with Shelter Outreach Services of Ohio, providing medical and surgical care for the largest municipal dog shelter in central Ohio. She furthered her career in shelter medicine aiding in the foundation building of the ASPCA Animal Cruelty and Recovery Center before starting her current position with The Ohio State University Veterinary Urgent Care. Dr. Yurick is continuing her education, obtaining her Masters in Animal Welfare and Behavior, from the University of Pennsylvania. She has a passion for emergency medicine, canine and feline behavior, and pet husbandry.
