MILA International Presents:

CAUTI or Nice? Placing and Maintaining the Urinary Catheter

The placement of urinary catheters in dogs and cats is a relatively common procedure in veterinary medicine. This lecture will review and provide technical tips and tricks to ensure success through the use of videos and pictures. Both routine and challenging catheter placements will be discussed. Finally, using the current literature, we will suggest optimal catheter care regimes and development of a urinary catheter "bundle" that can be introduced into any practice.
