Spec fPL® Test
(feline pancreas-specific lipase)
Now a simple test can tell if pancreatitis is the culprit
It’s true—every Under the Weather cat you see could have pancreatitis. Because history, physical examination and routine laboratory findings are nonspecific, you may not realise just how common pancreatitis is in cats.
A recent study published in The Journal of Veterinary Pathology showed 67% of cats presented for necropsy irrespective of the cause of death, had histologic evidence of pancreatitis, including 45% of apparently healthy cats.1 And while prevalence of clinically significant pancreatitis is likely not this high, the findings suggest that a variety of conditions often have concurrent pancreatitis.
