Feline GIT disease – there’s more than meets the IBD…
This will be an interactive clinical problem-solving course focusing on the diagnosis and management of common feline gastrointestinal diseases in the setting of first opinion small animal practice.
The aim of the course is to illustrate what can be achieved in first-opinion practice rather than focusing on what’s performed in referral-only settings. In addition, the course will challenge you to practice the art of asking/justifying uncomfortable questions such as ‘Why?’ and ‘Am I maximising the value of my client’s diagnostic pound?’, before acting.
Much research and publication exists surrounding the topics of pancreatitis, hepatitis and inflammatory bowel disease – collectively called ‘triaditis’. The big question remains – is it all of the above or none of the above? We will consider current published literature, integrate real-life case studies, and encourage participant discussion surrounding diagnosing, managing, and treating various GIT conditions in cats.
The five key things you will learn from this course are:
- When, why and how to diagnose feline pancreatitis
- When, why and how to treat feline pancreatitis
- How to best manage the anorexic cat
- How to approach more complex vomiting/diarrhoea cases in practice
- How to use endoscopy in feline GIT cases and when to weach for the ‘scope’
