FLUTD – causes, and the treatment of urethral obstruction

About this event

Part 1: FLUTD - causes and the treatment of urethral obstruction

Join Dr Karien Brink from RCL Foods and Prof. Danièlle Gunn-Moore for the first of a two-part webinar on 31 August 2021.

This webinar will look at the causes of Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease, and update our understanding of Feline Idiopathic Cystitis aka Stress Cystitis in particular. By understanding the causes of FLUTD, we improve our chances of treating these cases successfully. We will then go into detail about the different ways of unblocking urethral obstruction, with lots of tips and tricks to make this far more successful, and reduce the risk of recurrence – which is otherwise so common.

Part 2 will take place on 5 October, covering the management of non-obstructive FLUTD, and the home-care of cats after relief of urethral obstruction.
