Royal Canin to join forces with IDEXX to host webinar exploring FLUTD and Dysuria in felines

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease does not only cause difficulty and pain to the cat but can be frustrating to both the patient and the owner.

With this in mind, Royal Canin and IDEXX Laboratories will be joining forces to provide a step by step guide on how best to manage the painful and common symptoms that come with FLUTD at their next webinar.

 ‘‘FLUTD and Dysuria – a frustration for many and not just the cat’ will be hosted by Dr Hanne Friis Lund (DvM) on Tuesday 30th April at 8:00pm.  Focusing on urine analysis and laboratory tests, Dr Friis will advise and guide attendees on diagnostics while Katy Smith from Royal Canin will take us through the nutritional management of this condition.

Commenting on the upcoming webinar Dr Hanne Friis said: “Feline lower urinary tract disease is a very common condition in both male and female cats affecting 1-3% of cats every year.”

“It goes without saying that FLUTD causes great discomfort and pain for the feline, which is why the webinar will explore how best to manage the condition from a nutritional point of view. From the innovative Haematuria Detection by Blücare litter granules which turn blue when a urinary condition is detected to the new urinary range kibble from Royal Canin’s Veterinary Health Nutrition, the webinar will be leaving no stone unturned.”

Dr Hanne Friis graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Copenhagen in 2005. Following her graduation, she worked in both first opinion and referral private practices in Norway and Denmark before joining IDEXX as Medical Affairs Manager for Northern Europe, United Kingdom and Italy in 2014.

Dr Lund is well versed in haematology and the assessment of inflammatory diseases as well as in urology and the ongoing development of biomarkers to help the early stages of diseases.
