When can we treat them like small dogs and when is that unwise?In this online course we will focus on some key areas where our feline friends can cause real challenges if we dont appreciate how they can differ from dogs. Four major areas posing specific challenges are: interpretation of clinical pathology, especially related to the liver and pancreas; anaesthesia especially the problems of anaesthetic and analgesic drug choices, endotracheal intubation, fluid therapy, hypothermia and making your monitors work in small patients; emergency and critical care where cats present with different disease processes and respond in different ways to sepsis and shock; and therapeutics where cats just love to metabolise drugs differently to dogs which can have significant consequences in relation to the efficacy of the drug and risk of adverse reactions.Why do this course?To enhance your appreciation of the difference between cats and dogs in key areas of their care and management.This course last ran in March 2019 and contains all of the learning material (webinars, reading material, slides, self assessment exercises) from then, but is not tutor moderated. A set of FAQs is available which represent the questions and concerns previous participants have had and the tutor responses.You have four weeks in which to view your Recorded Webinar Plus course.
