What will I learn on this course?

Session 1: Boluses or Low Rates – How to Use Fluid Therapy in Shock versus Dehydration

Hypovolaemia is the most common cause of shock in dogs and cats and can be rapidly fatal if left untreated. Dehydration is also common in veterinary patients but is emergency cc anaemic dogassessed and treated quite differently. During this session you’ll learn the differences between hypovolaemia and dehydration before going on to look at how both problems are treated with fluid therapy but with a different protocol and approach. How might the fluid therapy that you choose differ between a trauma patient and one that is anorexic with increased gastrointestinal fluid loss?

Key points to be covered:

  • Clinical differences between hypovolaemia and shock versus dehydration – why you need to know
  • Commonly available parenteral fluids: crystalloids and synthetic colloids and how to use them
  • Your fluids plan and how it differs for reperfusion versus rehydration


Session 2: How to Assess and Stabilise your Patient following Motor Vehicle Trauma

Dogs and especially cats very often get hit by motor vehicles and a rational approach to their management can make the difference between life and death. During this emergency cc rta catsession we’ll discuss your assessment and initial stabilisation of the RTA patient with reference to the core principles covered in the preceding sessions in this emergency medicine series. We will then go on to discuss how you should approach and manage some of the most common injuries suffered following motor vehicle trauma.

Key points to be covered:

  • Assessment of your RTA patients including major body systems and the abdomen
  • Initial stabilisation including fluid therapy for shock and analgesia
  • Rational approach to common thoracic injuries
  • Essential steps to minimising secondary effects of traumatic brain injury in your emergency patients


Session 3: Small Animal Emergencies You Will See and How to Deal with Them – GDV and Blocked Cats

Not all patients seen as emergencies are suffering from potentially life-threatening problems but some are! Two of the most infamous potentially fatal disorders are emergency cc gdv imagecanine gastric dilation-volvulus syndrome (GDV) and tomcat urethral obstruction. In this session we’ll discuss the assessment and stabilisation of these patients with reference to the core principles covered in previous sessions in this emergency medicine series. We will also explore each of these emergency disorders in greater depth discussing your rational approach to their management. Do all of your GDV patients need surgery? Is cystocentesis advisable in your blocked cat patients?
