Urine measuring and disposal of leptospirosis urine to minimize zoonotic risk | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Videos

In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education video, Dr. Amy Kaplan, CVMA, DACVECC, MRCVS, criticalist at Urgent Pet Care, reviews how to use appropriate disinfectants (e.g., iodine) to minimize zoonotic exposure to staff while handling urine. Using this “Smart-Y” centesis device, the veterinary professional can measure and dispose of urine suspected of carrying leptospires while minimizing zoonotic risk. This can be done either using this specific Smart-Y centesis device or via a 3-way stopcock and extension setting.
