Respiratory Medicine

5th Annual Gulf-Atlantic Veterinary Conference

Feline Inflammatory Airway Diseases

Saturday, December 2
9:00 AM - 9:50 AM
Location: Royal Palm Ballroom Salon 8


There are a number of important inflammatory airway diseases of the cat including asthma, chronic bronchitis, parasitic bronchitis, and secondary bacterial bronchitis. This lecture will primarily focus on non-infectious inflammatory disorders in the cat, with brief mention of treatment of the other infectious disorders. Discrimination of these disorders requires consideration of signalment, historical signs, physical examination findings, thoracic radiography, testing for infectious causes, analysis of lavage fluid cytology and response to therapeutic trials.
