The documents below provide quick help and tips for using technology equipment in the classrooms. Please contact the CaTS Help Desk if you need further assistance with classroom technology.
Having the right equipment is key to a successful Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) effort. A humane box trap or drop trap will ensure the safety of the cats from the time you trap the cats to when you release them after recovery. We don’t recommend “clam” traps, which close horizontally because they can injure cats. Use these tips for safe and effective trapping.
We can provide loaners for the listed equipment for cats to be treated at our clinic only. A deposit is required, as shown.

Most commonly, home fluid therapy is recommended for cats with kidney disease or chronic renal failure (CRF). If your cat is diagnosed with a condition that will benefit from fluid therapy, your veterinarian can teach you to perform this simple procedure. Don't be alarmed - it is normal to feel hesitant or apprehensive about administering any treatment to your pet.
"The benefits that your cat receives will make it well worth your time to learn this simple technique."Giving injections is outside the comfort zone for almost anyone outside the medical profession. However, subcutaneous fluid administration is not nearly as difficult as it sounds. The benefits that your cat receives will make it well worth your time to learn this simple technique. The equipment for home fluid therapy typically consists of a bag of fluids, a fluid drip set, and a needle. The fluid drip set is simply a tube that connects the fluid bag to the needle. A member of our veterinary professional staff will go through the steps with you in person. The steps are as follows: 1. Remove the fluid bag and fluid drip set from their protective packaging. 2. Close the line lock in the middle of the fluid tubing by moving the roller so that it squeezes the tubing. The lock on a new fluid set is usually set in the open position. 3. The top end of the fluid set has a large, pointed end with a protective cap. Remove this cap, but do not allow it to become contaminated. IT SHOULD NOT TOUCH ANYTHING. 4. Pull the protective covering from the exit port on the bottom end of the fluid bag. This will expose a hole that will accept the pointed end of the fluid set. 5. Push the pointed end of the fluid set into the open hole of the fluid bag. It must be seated firmly to prevent leaks. 6. Gently squeeze and release the bulb at the top of the drip set until the bulb chamber is about half full with fluid. 7. Remove the protective cap from the lower end of the fluid set, but do not discard it. Do not allow it to become contaminated. IT SHOULD NOT TOUCH ANYTHING. 8. Open the line lock or roller on the tubing and then hold or suspend the fluid bag; fluid should flow freely. Fill the fluid line with fluid from the bag. Be sure that all large air bubbles run out of the tubing. a. Once the fluid line is full, close the lock on the fluid line by rolling the roller downward. b. Replace the protective cap on the lower end of the fluid set. 9. Open the protective wrapping around the needle so that the open end (not the sharp end) is exposed. Do not contaminate the open end by allowing it to touch ANYTHING. 10. Remove the protective cap from the lower end of the fluid set, and place the open end of the needle on it. Press it on firmly. You may discard this protective cap.
