PANCREATITIS is becoming increasingly recognised as a clinical entity in cats. It has always been notoriously difficult to diagnose. Recently, diagnosis has been aided by newer, more sensitive diagnostic tools; however, no test is 100 per cent sensitive or specific, and pancreatitis therefore remains a diagnostic challenge. This article provides an overview of the anatomy and physiology of the pancreas, the pathophysiology involved in pancreatitis and the associated risk factors and clinical signs. It also presents practical guidance on the diagnosis and management of both mild and severe disease in cats.
