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.
This presentation will:
- Summarize the various potential causes of feline pancreatitis and understand proposed pathogenetic mechanisms of pancreatitis in cats.
- Describe the various diagnostic modalities that can be employed in order to rule-out or diagnose pancreatitis in a cat.
- Establish an evidenced-based management plan for a cat with acute pancreatitis.
- Establish an evidence-based management and monitoring plan for a cat with chronic pancreatitis.
