The first cuvzs talk of term will be on thursday.

The talk will be given by Joanna Hedley and will be entitled “First Aid for the Wildlife Casualty”

Here is a brief overview of what the talk will be about, from Joanna – Wildlife casualties can be presented to any vet at any time, varying from the smallest baby bird to a stranded whale. Patients are often critical and vets may need to make decisions and be prepared to act quickly in an emergency situation. This presentation will cover initial triage and stabilization of the wildlife casualty. This will include fluid therapy, nutritional support and provision of analgesia. Common emergency conditions will be discussed.

Sounds like it should be a good one, hope to see lots of you there!
