Feline aspergillosis: An overview

In 2013 Dr Barrs discovered Aspergillus felis in cats from Australia with an aggressive form of upper respiratory tract aspergillosis.  Feline aspergillosis is now recognised as an important fungal infection of cats, and should be on your diagnostic "radar", especially if you are presented with cats with chronic nasal discharge and sneezing, or the more dramatic presentation of a swollen-eye or corneal ulcer from a retrobulbar fungal mass.
In this talk, Vanessa will give a comprehensive overview of feline aspergillosis, much of it based on her own research and clinical experience.  Included will be case-based presentations of feline sino-nasal and sino-orbital aspergillosis, tips for biopsy collection and culture, other diagnostic tests and management options, including topical and systemic anti-fungal drugs.
