Pancreatitis in Cats
May 19, 2017

Pancreatitis is a condition that can affect many species of animals including humans, dogs, and cats. While we know more about the causes of pancreatitis in humans and dogs, cats are harder to pinpoint the cause. It is now known that cats with pancreatitis will commonly experience loss of appetite and lethargy and sometimes vomiting. Pancreatitis in cats, if left untreated, can cause other issues such as hepatic lipidosis, diabetes mellutis, or disseminated intravascular coagulation to name a few. To diagnose pancreatitis in cats we use a specialized test to check the blood. From there we are able to treat the issues and aim to get the patient back to feeling better.
