Upper Respiratory Infections (URI) are common infections of the upper airways in kittens and cats. As a foster caregiver of these pets, there is a high chance that you might encounter this infection in one or more of your fostered felines.

The learning objectives for this class will:

  • Provide you with an overview of URI in kittens and cats
  • Inform you about the consequences of URI
  • Teach you how to identify URI symptoms and when to seek veterinary attention
  • Educate you on how to care for kittens and cats with URI
