In this episode, host Alyssa Watson, DVM, is joined by Heather Kvitko-White, DVM, DACVIM (SAIM), to talk about her recent Clinician’s Brief article, “Chronic Enteropathy in Cats.” Dr. White explains why viewing the condition as chronic enteropathy is gaining favor. She discusses the most practical diagnostic options, the realistic value of biopsy when it comes to diagnosing underlying causes like IBD or small cell lymphoma, and treatment options, including the usefulness, or lack thereof, of novel protein diets and the dilemma of whether or not to withhold steroids.
