About the course

Let’s face it, the non-responsive snotty cat is a common clinical conundrum that challenges the feline practitioner on a daily basis. You’ve tried the antibiotics and performed the nasal flushes and got very disappointing outcomes. This course will help you develop, with more confidence, a practical and realistic approach to achieving a more specific diagnosis than ‘cat flu’. The course content will also help you to decide when and how to investigate these cases, how rhinoscopy can be integrated into your diagnostic plan, and your options for therapeutic intervention(s). Delegate interaction and dialogue is highly encouraged!

What you’ll learn:

  • Indications of the ‘Feline Universal Rigid Endoscope’ and ‘Feline Bronchoscope’ for upper  respiratory endoscopic procedures
  • How to assemble the endoscopy chain
  • Infraorbital nerve blocks
  • Technique for safe use of 1.9mm x 30 degree oblique integrated telescope for rostral rhinoscopy
  • How to collect biopsy samples from the nasal cavity safely
  • Use the flexible bronchoscope for nasopharyngeal examination as part of upper respiratory investigation
  • Practical wet lab tuition with direct help to develop your skills
