Chronic hepatitis… Coping with Copper

Internal Medicine | 80 mins
Chronic hepatitis in the dog can be a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The majority of cases of canine chronic hepatitis are idiopathic. The etiology most commonly identified as a cause or contributor to chronic hepatitis is excess hepatic copper accumulation. Some form of immune-mediated process is also postulated as an etiology for chronic hepatitis in dogs, and although this condition remains poorly defined, it is frequently the target of chronic hepatitis treatment. Join us for the live webinar where we will unlock the mystery!
