Intravenous fluid therapy

Print E-mail

If a pet is dehydrated, vomiting, has severe diarrhea, or is very unwell, then intravenous fluids are often needed. This involves placing a catheter or cannula in the forearm or foreleg. Most pets tolerate this very well. The catheter is then covered by a light, comfortable dressing, and connected to IV fluids. IV fluids are water and salt solutions. IV fluids aim to restore fluid to the animal when they are not able to eat or drink. IV fluid therapy is often a life-saving procedure.
