This course provides an introduction to emergency medicine with particular emphasis on treating cats, including triage, shock and fluid therapy and treatment of common toxicities.
Much of what we do in veterinary emergency medicine is extrapolated from human medicine and while we learn more about the unique pathophysiology of disease and responses to treatment in cats, evidence for emergency treatment in cats is scarce.
This course will present the latest evidence-based approach to feline emergencies, combined with the tutor’s personal experience treating cats in the emergency setting, and will get you up to speed in the key areas needed to provide effective emergency care to cats. The unique aspects of caring for cats in the emergency and critical care settings will also be addressed.
'Great course dealing with the challenge of feline emergencies, recommended to any vet in practice.'
Dr Ildiko Plaganyi, Lort Smith Animal Hospital
