Tailored TLC for Feline Friends WebinarPLUS NurseEd
Rabbit Anaesthesia: where everyone holds their breath waiting for it to be over - including the patient. Rabbits have a higher reported anaesthetic mortality rate than dogs and cats. There are a number of factors that influence this, including differences in behaviour, anatomy and physiology that need to be appreciated to prepare for a safe and successful anaesthetic in this species. They may also have underlying disease processes, that are undetected, as prey species are excellent at masking signs of illness. The aim of this webinar with Megan Walmsley is to arm nurses with the knowledge and skills to address some of the challenges in rabbit anaesthesia and the confidence to advocate for these patients.
Cats have a unique physiology and behavioural biology, and there is great diversity in terms of temperament and behaviour which varies from individual to individual.
Understanding this allows veterinary nurses to care for cats knowledgeably and better fulfil their needs. Applying a tailored approach that focuses on the cat’s background, behaviour, and body language to establish the individual cat’s wants and needs allows us to provide low-stress nursing care which benefits both the cat and the veterinary staff.
Presented by Sarah Collins, this webinar looks at the veterinary environment and equipment, cat friendly interactions and handling and other nursing considerations with discussion around how small changes based on the individual patient can make their stay a more pleasant experience. Veterinary nurses are key to successful outcomes and understanding how to take a cat friendly approach and implementing cat friendly principles will significantly contribute to this success.
