Join RCVS Feline Medicine Specialist, Professor Danielle Gunn-Moore BSc(Hon), BVM&S, PhD, MANZCVS (Feline), FHEA, FRSB, FRCVS, RCVS from the Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies and The Roslin Institute, as she reviews the common and tricky condition of FLUTD.

This presentation will examine the various causes of FLUTD (Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease), and will look at the overlap between behavioural and medical influences, as well as the role of stress. With a focus on feline idiopathic cystitis, as this is by far the most important cause of FLUTD. In these cases, disease most commonly represents the effect of placing a susceptible individual within a provocative environment. It is only by understanding the overlap between medical and behavioural cases and addressing the underlying factors that we can hope to manage these very frustrating cases.

Discussion will also include the advances in our understanding of these conditions, as well as some very practical tips on their treatment. There will be a question and answer session at the end of the webinar. A CPD certificate will be provided.
