New feline anesthesia guidelines
« on: December 19, 2018, 10:59:17 AM »
In October, the American Association of Feline Practitioners released "the first feline-specific anesthesia guidelines, published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery earlier this year."

“By proactively developing an individualized anesthetic plan that considers the uniqueness of each feline patient, and recognizing that ‘one size does not fit all’, the experience for the cat can be improved and the outcome successful,” state the guidelines’ co-chairs Dr. Susan M. Gogolski, DVM and Dr. Sheilah A. Robertson, BVMS (Hons), PhD. “It is our hope that these guidelines will become the practice’s go-to resource, and each team member will have a new awareness of all the tools and techniques available to them.”
