Common but not always clear. A tour of feline gastrointestinal, urinary tract and infectious disease.
A range of advanced concepts in feline medicine will be presented in lectures, with case-based problem solving used to consolidate the learning material.
Lunch and refreshments provided.
Some of the most commonly encountered problems in feline medicine are also often poorly understood. Gastrointestinal disease, and disorders of the bladder, ureter and kidney, are daily occurrences in practice.
During the day we will focus on these areas, reviewing differential diagnoses for common presentations, and developing a sound approach to investigation and treatment using both pattern recognition and a problem-solving approach. Infectious causes of gastrointestinal disease will be covered, as will test methods and interpretation of results for various infectious diseases. Finally we will touch on reproductive hormone testing in cats of unknown neuter status. There will be a combination of lectures and case-based scenarios, to offer the opportunity for interactive problem solving, discussion and debate as we unravel the medical mysteries of the domestic cat.
- Apply a logical and systematic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of feline respiratory tract infection, feline infectious peritonitis, infectious diarrhoea and toxoplasmosis, including current therapeutic recommendations based on EBVM.
- Develop a logical and evidence-based approach to the diagnosis and management of chronic kidney disease and idiopathic cystitis.
