This course explores the common conditions of the lower urinary tract that challenge us everyday. We will review the most appropriate use of antibiotics and diet to manage some of these challenging cases. We also take a detailed look at the mysteries of feline idiopathic cystitis.
A detailed look at the causes, investigation and management of lower urinary tract disease (LUTD) in dogs and cats.
LUTD is a very common reason for patients to present in small animal practice; so this course will contain many practical tips and tricks to enable the diagnosis and management of the many disorders that can cause LUTD in cats and dogs. We will discuss many different aspects of LUTD, including the management of urinary tract infections and the challenge whether antibiotics are really indicated. The types of uroliths that effect dogs and cats are varied, so we will review the most up to date management strategies. The management of feline lower urinary tract disease remains challenging. Danielle will unlock what we really know about feline idiopathic cystitis aka Stress Cystitis and consider the evidence base and practicality of treating this frustrating condition.
The course is run by our very own Scott Kilpatrick (EBVS and RCVS Recognised Specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine) and Professor Danièlle A Gunn-Moore (RCVS Specialist in Feline Medicine). The course runs over an eight-week period and takes around 8 hours to complete. It is delivered via video webinars and supplemented with discussion forums and live Q&A chats with the course tutors, giving you the opportunity to ask questions or discuss cases you may be facing in your practice.
