I really enjoyed the course. A few of the people were a little hard to hear though.

I found that this webinar was extremely helpful. I work in a feline only vet hospital, so many of these concepts are already being used. The section about oral radiographs was extremely informative for me.

Has some good ideas for a small animal hospital that sees a lot of cats, most of who are aggressive. I really like the doctor in first to approach.
Mrs Shirley Schreiber RVN (18 Apr 2018)
great information and good advise
Susan Szczotka (17 Apr 2018)
I am confused with all of the discussion of use of the pop-off valve in anesthesia. I was taught that in smaller animals a non-rebreathing system was preferred/required. In my feline practice I have never used a system with a pop-off valve.

I enjoyed the focus on key points on several topics. It made it very engaging.

This video was very interesting to watch. I am a little scared of some cats because I do not know how they will respond when having to perform a task, but after learning these steps and techniques, I could try them out in clinic and tell my classmates about them too!
Dr Robert McClellan DVM (11 Jun 2018)
