About The Webinar

This webinar will focus on pre-anaesthetic examination, stabilisation and anaesthesia of the small animal patient with acute onset urinary tract disruption or obstruction. Providing appropriate analgesia and focusing on pre-anaesthesia stabilisation will be discussed to ensure patient status is optimised prior to induction of anaesthesia.
The patient with urinary tract disruption may present with life threatening arrhythmias. Their diagnosis, clinical signs to be aware of and appropriate interventions will be highlighted, along with monitoring of the patient during anaesthesia.
Significant pain and discomfort may be associated with bladder distension or uroabdomen and options for providing analgesia, using a variety of methods will also be discussed.
