A panel of 8 experts in the field (5 internists, 1 radiologist, 1 clinical pathologist, and 1 anatomic pathologist), with support from a librarian, was formed to assess and summarize evidence in the peer reviewed literature and complement it with consensus clinical recommendations. There was little literature on etiology and pathogenesis of spontaneous pancreatitis in cats, but there was much in humans, along with some experimental evidence in cats and non-feline species. Most evidence was in the area of diagnosis of pancreatitis in cats, which was summarized carefully. In contrast, there was little evidence on the management of pancreatitis in cats. This webinar summarizes the findings of the consensus group.
