Acute pancreatitis in dogs and cats: pathogenesis, clinical signs and clinicopathologic findings

Author
Organization
Abstract
Acute pancreatitis is a (usually sterile) inflammation with acute onset and characterized by necrosis and edema; it does not permanently disrupt the pancreatic architecture and is completely reversible. It is thought that, despite the pancreatic defense mechanisms, premature activation of trypsin in the acinar cells starts a cascade of reactions that result in autodigestion. Most cases are idiopathic. Dogs are often presented with gastrointestinal signs, whereas lethargy and anorexia are the most commonly observed symptoms in cats. Diagnosing pancreatitis remains a challenge, but the recent development of the pancreatic lipase immunoreactivity test is promising.
