About the course

Cats which have been hit by a car are a common emergency presentation to many veterinary clinics. This course will discuss how to manage these emergency cases from the moment they arrive at the clinic, the stabilisation they may require such as fluid therapy, oxygen therapy and analgesia. Part of the day will be case based focussing on some common injuries these cases experience and the nursing considerations for each.

Specific areas to be covered:

•  Triage and shock

•  Stabilisation – fluid therapy, IV access, oxygen therapy, analgesia

• Case-based sessions – head trauma, uroabdomen, respiratory distress, fractures and wounds
