Chronic Kidney Disease:
The New Paradigm of Early Diagnosis and Evolving Treatments
presented by Serge Chalhoub, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM (SAIM)
There have been some evolutionary developments in the diagnosis of chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Parallel to this, our understanding of CKD pathophysiology has also evolved. This has created a shift in paradigm as we have traditionally diagnosed CKD when cats and dogs would become clinically ill, whereas now we can detect CKD prior to any clinical signs. This new paradigm is leading a new wave of clinical research into early diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of CKD. This interactive presentation will cover updates on CKD pathophysiology, risk factors, diagnosis, and treatments, including diets.
