7th December 2019 from 9.15am for 9.30am

Kent School of Veterinary Nursing

Speaker: Alexandra Taylor RVN C&G CertSAN ISFM DipFN&AdCertFB

Meeting Programme:

In this lecture we will be discussing the importance and relevance of offering feline nursing clinics in practice. We will be discussing ways or reducing stress in cats (and their owners!)  whilst attending a nurse led clinic.  We will go through how being a ‘cat friendly’ nurse helps to ensure cats don’t miss important health checks and preventative healthcare given by the veterinary team. We will also be discussing the different types of nurse clinics that we can offer to cats in practice and how they may be beneficial in monitoring the overall health if feline patients from kitten to senior cats. We will also be discussing common feline behaviour problems encountered during a nurse clinic and the first aid advice nurses can give owners, as well as when to refer to a certified clinical animal behaviourist.
