About the course

Emergency patients present to all veterinary practices and nurses play an essential role in the management of these cases. This course will be case based, and in each patient scenario we will discuss triage and patient assessment when the animal arrives at the clinic, followed by the specific stabilisation, work up and nursing care for each case in depth.

Specific areas to be covered

  • Patient triage and stabilisation
  • Fluids and vascular access
  • Pain and Analgesia
  • Nutritional Support
