How to make a practice ‘Cat Friendly’: Cat friendly practice principles will improve the handling and care of cats in your practice.
Practical feline nursing 1: preventative healthcare, clinical examination and practical cat handling.
Practical feline nursing 2: feline specific pharmacology, analgesia and fluid therapy along with laboratory techniques and interpretation.
Common infectious and non-infectious diseases in cats.
