Pancreatitis… What the feline is new?

Internal Medicine | ECC | 103 mins

Pancreatitis in cats, although commonly diagnosed, still presents many diagnostic and management challenges. Accurate diagnosis of pancreatitis in cats requires the combination of history and clinical findings, diagnostic imaging, laboratory data, and potentially cytology or histopathology. Our understanding and recognition of inflammatory diseases of the feline pancreas has changed a lot over the last few years. This improvement in our understanding of the disease is due to marked improvements in diagnostic imaging modalities, minimally invasive clinical chemistry testing methods, and acknowledgement that the clinical manifestations of pancreatic disease in the cat are significantly different from those seen in the dog. In this webinar we explore the most up to date approach to the diagnosis and treatment of feline pancreatitis. Steroids or not… that is the question.
