My patient is proteinuric: what do I do next?

Forum overview:

Proteinuria and protein losing nephropathies have become more commonly detected in the past few years. Proteinuria is often an indicator of chronic kidney disease, however it can occur secondary to infectious, inflammatory, metabolic and neoplastic disorders. It can therefore serve as a sensitive indicator of both renal and extra-renal disease and its presence may initiate thorough diagnostic investigations – even in the absence of clinical signs. Improved diagnostics and treatment guidelines were published in 2013 by The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine to help us control this problem in dogs and cats.

During this evening forum, a selection of cases will be presented to highlight the investigations and treatment of some of the causes of proteinura, including discussion about when to take a renal biopsy and whether steroids might be a beneficial therapeutic option.

Evening CPD Forum schedule:

The evening will begin with an optional tour of the premises starting at 6.30pm prompt.

A buffet, wine and refreshments will be served in the dining room from 7.00pm followed at 8.00pm by the forum which should last approximately one and a half hours.

Certificates of Attendance will be issued for your CPD records.

Discussion and questions are welcomed during the forum.
