Cats & Post-Operative Surgery: How Rehabilitation Can Make Greater Success on Orthopedic & Soft Tissue Cases
Specialty Veterinary Technician Session: We have all heard the statement, "Cats are Not Small Dogs." This bears truth with our post-operative orthopedic rehabilitation feline patients. There are multiple ways to obtain a similar outcome and our feline patients will hold us accountable to this statement. Participants will be provided with rehabilitation techniques to develop a "home exercise program" including instruction guidelines to teach cat-owners during discharge and follow up post-surgery appointments. These tips and techniques will improve home rehabilitation compliance within our feline patients.
