Urinary Catheter Placement: Scope to include Cats and Dogs

Urinary catheter placement in dogs and cats is necessary in a variety of situations, including urinary obstruction, nursing care (non-ambulatory patients), and to measure urine output in critically ill patients. Catheter placement in male dogs and cats is more straight-forward; the ability to place urinary catheters in female dogs and cats requires knowledge of anatomy and some experience.

SPEAKER: Lisa L. Powell, DVM, DACVECC

Program Objectives:

  • Describe clinical situations in which urinary catheter placement is indicated
  • Explain the technique used to place urinary catheters in male and female dogs and cats
  • Discuss maintenance and use of urinary catheters in critically ill dogs and cats
  • Present a case that illustrates the clinical use of urinary catheters in practice

This is RACE approved for 1 hour of CE credit

Smith-Medical Virtual Equipment Showcase: Hotline Fluid Warmer

Hosted By: Tiffany Clymer

Veterinary Patient Temperature Management Equipment Showcase with Smiths Medical. Without the use of appropriate temperature management, the effects of hypothermia before, during and after surgery can negatively impact our small animal patients. With up to 3.4°C lost in the first 60 minutes of anesthesia, hypothermia can affect several body systems including vasodilation which reduces cardia output, a reduction in respiratory rate and metabolism, and impaired wound healing which increases the risk of infection.

Join Tiffany to learn how the Hotline® Blood & Fluid Warmer, and Level One® Convective Warmer with Snuggle Warm® Blankets can be used simultaneously to keep your patients warm from the inside out.

Equine Emergency: Triage of the Painful Eye

Eye injuries and disorders occur commonly in horses and can present a challenge to horse owners and examining veterinarians alike. Appropriate initial care of ophthalmic disorders is vital for a positive outcome. Successful restraint, physical examination of the horse and ophthalmic structures, and sound initial treatments can help achieve good results and facilitate referral when indicated.
