In today’s VETgirl blog, we interview Amy Newfield, CVT, VTS (ECC) on the importance of a closed urinary collection system (UCS). Can you use old sterile IV bags, or can they pose a threat to contamination? What’s the significance of the anti-reflux valve (e.g., one way valve) in a UCS, and how should I maintain a UCS in the veterinary clinic?
