Fundic examination should be part of all physical examinations (ie, performed on every patient presented for routine checkup). Abnormalities that can affect the fundus of a cat include inherited disease, acquired disease, infectious disease, manifestations of systemic disease, and congenital abnormalities. When examining the feline fundus, clinicians may also appreciate variations of normal anatomy. The more often a practitioner examines the fundus of feline patients, the more comfortable he or she will become identifying normal variants versus abnormalities.
