Speaker: Gary P. Oswald, DVM, MS, Diplomate, ACVIM (Small Animal Internal Medicine)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a common issue affecting so many aging cats and dogs. Appropriate diagnostic screening allows for early identification of affected patients. Early CKD recognition allows for introduction of dietary and medical treatments that can slow the progression of disease assuring continued enjoyment of life quality for our patients and owners.
Speakers: Sheri Ross, BSc, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACVIM
The International Renal Interest Society (IRIS) staging system for chronic kidney disease in cats helps to define specific stages of CKD and outlines clinical abnormalities that are frequently encountered at each stage. This lecture will concentrate on the diagnostic and management recommendations for the later stages (3 and 4) of CKD in cats. With careful and aggressive management, many late stage cats can continue to do well for months to years. Emphasis will be placed on nutrition and pharmacologic management of the most common metabolic derangements.
Speaker: William Whitehouse, DVM, DACVIM
In this lecture, we will review some of the common causes of acute kidney injury in dogs in cats, differences between acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease, and general treatment recommendations. An overview of different treatment strategies including intravenous fluid therapy, empirical antibiotics and management of oliguria/anuria will be discussed.

A short break: 16:03-16:06 CDT
