Chronic pancreatitis in dogs and cats: Diagnostic and treatment dilemmas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Pancreatitis is a disease that occurs in acute, chronic, mild and severe forms in both dogs and cats. There has been extensive work on the past decade investigating new methods of diagnosis and the pathogenesis of the disease in both companion animals and people. Whilst many of these tests have a relatively high sensitivity for acute pancreatitis (or an ability to detect disease when it is present), the sensitivity of these assays diminishes when the pancreatic inflammation is chronic. Assessment of treatment options of chronic pancreatitis (CP) is sadly lacking in the veterinary literature, and is still controversial in the medical field.
