138. Feline Pyelonephritis
Pyelonephritis is a common differential for acute or acute-on-chronic uremic crisis. However, definitive diagnosis and management can be somewhat challenging. In this session, attendees will review ideal diagnostics to assess the acute-on-chronic azotemic patient; consider what evidence supports the diagnosis of pyleonephritis; and learn tips for management and follow up of pyelonephritis patients.
