SAVETCON invites you to their event

GIT case studies in cats & dogs

About this event

Clinical signs of gastrointestinal (GIT) disease are frequent cause of grey hairs in small animal practice! Because GIT signs are not specific for a particular disease or organ, they can pose a diagnostic dilemma. Routine clinical pathology is an essential and valuable tool for the diagnostic work-up of these cases. From electrolytes and serum proteins to enzymes and haematology, laboratory diagnostics are often necessary for the diagnosis, monitoring and prognostication of these cases. Please join us as we discuss how you can and should use clinical pathology in tackling commonly encountered GIT diseases in dogs and cats.
