Abstract

This book is the proceedings of the event that continues the PGF's tradition of feline continuing education and introduced a new team of tutors. All but one came from a feline-only practice, and all work in large, busy facilities that see primary accession and also referred cases. Their topics reflect this melding of common disease conditions, more exotic entities and new syndromes. This comprehensive program includes solid conceptual approaches, to the management of common and important cat diseases, including Squamous cell carcinoma, the cholangiohepatitis complex, Hepatic lipidosis, Diabetes mellitus, Megacolon, Pertineal hernia and Hyperthyroidism and its treatment with radioiodine and surgery. More novel concepts explored are the use of ultrasound in working up lower and urinary tract conditions of cats, the diagnosis and management of ureteric obstruction, Hyperparathyroidism, unique features of critical care medicine applicable to feline patients, and new concepts in diagnostic reasoning and clinical decision-making.
