Diseases involving the intestinal tract, pancreas and liver are among the most commonly seen in small animal practice. Clinical presenting signs can be similar and include decreased appetite, vomiting and diarrhea. Our goal is to discuss the most commonly seen intestinal, pancreatic and liver diseases to help in diagnosing and treating these patients. After attending this seminar you will have the most up-to-date information on the diagnosis of intestinal, pancreatic and liver disease; know what information a pLI, folate and cobalamin provide and when testing is indicated; have a better understanding of the unique features of feline liver enzymes; know when intestinal and liver biopsies are indicated and how to get the most information from them; “trust your gut” and feel comfortable diagnosing intestinal, pancreatic and liver disease; have the most up-to-date information on the treatment of intestinal, pancreatic and liver disease; have a better understanding of anti-ulcer medications, prokinetic drugs, antiemetics and hepatic supportive therapy; and you won’t get in-digestion when presented with a patient with digestive disease!
