Liver Disease In Companion Animals
Date: Monday 6th July, 2020 - Sunday 26th July, 2020
Start time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Duration: 8 hour(s)
Liver disease in dogs and cats can be challenging to diagnose and effectively treat, especially when the underlying cause can be elusive! The course will focus on how we can get the most out of initial diagnostic tests as well as helping decide what more advanced diagnostics might be appropriate. Liver biopsies are often needed for a definitive diagnosis and the course will discuss the best way to obtain liver tissue samples as well as how best to interpret cytology and histopathology. Definitive treatment of liver disease is not always possible. We will review the most up to date research surrounding liver disease treatment. Congenital portosystemic shunts are well recognised vascular abnormalities in our companion animals, but we will also review some of the more unusual vascular abnormalities of the liver. Investigation of liver disease. General principals of the treatment of liver disease. Canine inflammatory/infectious liver disease. Feline inflammatory/infectious liver disease. Diseases of the gallbladder and biliary system. Vascular abnormalities of the liver.
