About The Webinar

A cat presenting with a urethral obstruction represents a genuine and potentially life-threatening emergency, but clearing the obstruction without causing further urethral damage requires time and patience and cannot be rushed. This webinar provides a practical approach to the problem:

  • Emergency management of the life threatening metabolic complications of the acutely obstructed cat.
    Reducing the anaesthetic risk and buying yourself time.
  • Top tips for clearing the obstruction
    Atraumatic urethral flushing to avoid causing further damage
    The how, what and why of urethral catheters
  • Post-obstructive care – keeping the urine flowing after the event:
    Are in-dwelling catheters required or do they promote further damage?
    Recognising and managing post-obstructive urethral spasm
