Parenteral Fluid Therapy


eCPD Tutorial – unlimited lifetime access!



Course Summary

This 60 minute eCPD tutorial discusses parenteral fluid therapy – which is possibly the most commonly used drug therapy in veterinary patients.


In order to be able to use this therapy most effectively and safely, it is essential to understand the differences between the common types of fluid available – crystalloids and synthetic colloids – and how best to use them. Hypovolaemia and dehydration are the two most common indications for parenteral fluid therapy but the fluid plan differs significantly when treating these two problems and this is described in detail in this webcast.


Before listening to this webcast, it would be ideal to first find out more about the differences between hypovolaemia and dehydration by listening to the webcast entitled ‘Hypovolaemia, Shock and Dehydration’.
