20th September 2021 - 20th September 2022£20.00
Anaemia is a common reason for cats to present to our clinics, but the management of anaemia has lots of challenges. Cats don’t like to make things easy! In this webinar we will look at the options for transfusion support in our anaemic cats. We will learn about the practicalities of carrying out your own blood donations as well as some of the other options that are available. From blood banks to xenotransfusions!
