Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency is a disease seen both in dogs and cats, though the presentation is quite different.

The varied clinical signs (classic diarrhea in dogs, in cats more likely weight loss without diarrhea) will be addressed. This lecture will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of EPI both in cats and dogs. If you are looking for it you will find a lot more cases than you think. You have to be aware of it as a differential as it will often not be as straightforward a diagnosis as we were taught in veterinary school. Culture Plate System (UTid+) and Conventional Urine Culture for Canine and Feline Specimens” will also be included.
