You want me to put what, where?
Placing urinary catheters is an advanced nursing skill that can be invaluable in clinic and placing these catheters is a skill that veterinary nurses can excel at. Urinary catheters may be placed for a variety of reasons in our canine and feline patients including monitoring outputs in renal disease, patient hygiene in recumbent patients or restricted mobility patients or to relieve urinary blockages. This talk will cover placing male urinary catheters and the more technically challenging female urinary catheters.
