The Vet Professional Education Package component of this website is intended for use ONLY by qualified and registered veterinary practitioners and allied veterinary professionals, such as veterinary nurses. The procedures depicted or otherwise described in this publication must not under any circumstances be performed by, or attempted by, any person who is not a qualified and registered veterinary practitioner.

This publication, and the information included in this publication, must only be used by veterinary practitioners and allied veterinary professionals as a general guide as to the desexing procedures depicted or described in the publication.

This publication and the information contained in the publication is not, and must not be regarded as, clinical advice given to any veterinary practitioner or any other person. In particular, this publication and the information included in the publication is no substitute for a veterinary practitioner conducting a full examination of his or her feline animal patient; taking a full history from the animal’s owner or other person able to give that history to the veterinary practitioner; and reaching a diagnosis, and then treating the animal, based on accepted veterinary clinical practices.

Veterinary practitioners implementing any procedure or recommendation contained in, or described in this publication must exercise their own independent skill and judgment, or otherwise seek their own professional advice relevant to specific circumstances. Compliance with any procedures or recommendations contained in, or described in, this publication cannot of itself discharge the duty of care owed by a veterinary practitioner or allied veterinary professional to any animal patient, the animal’s owner, and others coming into contact with the veterinary practitioner.
