This free veterinary CPD Podcast is produced by Clinician’s Brief. Host Beckie Mossor (RVT) talks to ECC specialist Adesola Odunayo about best practice when it comes to cystocentesis.
In which cases should you opt for cystocentesis rather than free-catch urine samples? And when does Dr Odunayo advise using ultrasound rather than going blind when performing this procedure?
When should we be particularly cautious about performing cystocentesis and what complications can arise from this procedure? How commonly do these occur and what are the long term consequences?
Cystocentesis for patients with urethral obstruction can be controversial. What’s the latest advice? Finally Dr Odunyo talks about her own experience of performing cystocentesis including a cat having a vasovagal reaction.
