Management of Cats with Chronic Kidney Disease (for Nurses)
Accurate diagnosis and management of chronic kidney disease in cats is important, not to bring about a cure but to alleviate its consequences and preserve life expectancy.
Good veterinary nursing is vital at each stage of patient care, so that consistent quality outcomes can be delivered to cats and their owners.
This presentation will review pathophysiology, diagnosis and staging of chronic kidney disease as well as identifying its consequences and their management, from a nursing perspective.
