WSU Webinar on Feline Anesthesia and Analgesia

by Admin 28. September 2010 14:18

Webinar on Feline Anesthesia and Analgesia by Dr. Tammy Grubb is available anytime.


Cats present some anesthetic  & analgesic challenges that should be addressed. Small body size often makes drug dosing difficult, increases the challenge of finding appropriate equipment (anesthetic equipment, monitoring equipment, etc…) and increases the likelihood of size-related complications, like hypothermia. Furthermore, cats may react to drugs differently than dogs react and may metabolize certain drug classes differently.  However, these qualities that are unique to the cat do not provide an excuse for not utilizing the best anesthetic or analgesic techniques and drugs available to us on every single feline patient.  Drugs and techniques recommended for the cat will be discussed.

A handout on constant rate infusions is available to participants.  http://bit.ly/bZ0iha
