Cats which have been hit by a car are a common emergency presentation to many veterinary clinics. This flexible online CPD course will discuss how to manage these emergency cases from the moment they arrive at the clinic, the stabilisation they may require such as fluid therapy, oxygen therapy and analgesia. Part of the course will be case based focussing on some common injuries these cases experience and the nursing considerations for each.

  • Lesson 2:  Fluid Therapy and Stabilisation
  • Lesson 3:  Case Based Scenarios – head trauma, uroabdomen, respiratory distress, fractures and wounds
  • Lesson 4:  Nursing Critically Ill Cats


The course will be available immediately following purchase, with unlimited lifetime access and will provide a total of 8 hours of CPD (UK) or 8 points (Australia and New Zealand).

The course is completely flexible, where all the learning resources are  provided immediately – it is designed for you to complete one lesson of 2 hours each week, however you may also opt to do the whole course in one sitting, or log in for 5 minutes once a month – it is entirely your decision.  This type of course is perfect if you are self driven and can motivate yourself to learn independently – if you prefer more structured courses, then please have a look at our online tutored courses instead.
