    1. Follow the directions from Martin Godwin; and

    Infectious diseases
    My goal is to keep all of my clients and animals free from the transmission of any infectious diseases where possible.

Infectious diseases may include (but not limited to) ring worm, strangles, equine influenza, or any reportable outbreak.
