Although commonly used in everyday clinical practice, fluid therapy is often not considered in great detail, all too often resulting in a blanket “one rate fits all” approach. The topic of fluid therapy is huge and can be quite complex. However, this 50 minute eCPD tutorial aims to give a practical overview of the subject. After a brief introduction, the commercially available fluid types will be discussed. This is followed by focusing on providing a practical and logical approach to fluid therapy in companion animals. This will hopefully provide the information needed to allow individualised patient fluid plans to be created with relative ease.

This CPD tutorial is worth 50 minutes towards your RCVS requirements.
