Feline adrenal disease is an often overlooked but important area of endocrinology. Cats, like dogs, suffer from both hyper- and hypoadrenocorticism. Primary hyperaldosteronism is under-diagnosed adrenal condition usually caused by an adrenal tumour which, typically, can result in systemic hypertension and/or marked hypokalaemia. Recognition, diagnosis and management of all of these conditions (and more!) will be discussed in the webinar.
