Portosystemic shunts in cats: Are they different?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Increased frequency of drooling (ptyalism) among the clinical signs of cats affected with CPSS along with the presence of Copper coloured iris' are the two main differences cited for cats.  In addition, cats often have less pronounced clinical pathological changes.  Cats also have much more predictable shunt anatomy with predominantly left gastric vein shunts and occasionally  splenocaval shunts present.  Intrahepatic forms are extremely rare.  Cats also seem to be more prone to post attenuation neurological complcations than dogs although, fortunately, if treated promptly, they respond well.  This session will highlight the differences between cats and dogs with this disease but also point out some of the similarities regarding outcome.
