Event Description

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 emergency, 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 course covers triage, shock and fluid therapy, as well as treatment of common toxicities. The unique aspects of caring for cats in the emergency and critical care settings will also be addressed. Veterinary nurses with a special interest in the topic are welcome to enrol in this course. Please be aware that the course is designed for qualified veterinarians and you should consider this in light of your knowledge and experience before you register.
“The course was great opportunity to revise my knowledge before ANZCVS exam” Martina Naceardska, owner of cat friendly clinic. “Fantastic course. Very interactive. Loved it” Paula Rodrigues Vance.
