Veterinary internist Dr. David Bruyette discusses how acromegaly has been determined to be the main cause of this phenomenon in cats. Dr. Bruyette also discusses up-and-coming diagnostic and treatment options for acromegaly. (Can you say "transsphenoidal hypophysectomy" three times fast? We bet Dr. Bruyette can.)
