In a dvm360® interview, Tasha McNerney, BS, CVT, CVPP, VTA (Anesthesia and Analgesia), faculty for the Directions in Veterinary Medicine (DIVM) symposium in Miami, Florida, outlines constant-rate infusions of certain drugs that can benefit cats undergoing surgery or anesthesia.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Tasha McNerney, BS, CVT, CVPP, VTA (Anesthesia and Analgesia): For felines in particular, we can do constant-rate infusions of a lot of different drug classes. So we can do constant-rate infusions of something like an opioid, like a hydromorphone, or a fentanyl infusion. We can do something like a ketamine infusion, which is one of my favorite things to do during dentistry, especially if we have a lot of extractions.
