Abstract

PRACTICAL RELEVANCE:

Nasopharyngeal disease is a common presenting problem in feline medicine.

CLINICAL CHALLENGES:

The management of feline nasopharyngeal disease can be challenging at a number of levels. In many cases, a specific diagnosis may remain elusive. Some conditions may not be curable so owners need to understand the requirement for long-term management. In addition, treatment may be compromised by poor patient compliance.

AUDIENCE:

This review, which is directed at any clinicians involved in the management of cats with nasopharyngeal disease, discusses acute rhinitis (cat 'flu) and a variety of conditions causing chronic rhinosinusitis/chronic nasopharyngeal disease. The intention is to assist treatment decision making by reviewing the most appropriate therapies from the options available for these patients.

EVIDENCE BASE:

The information presented in this article is based on peer-reviewed publications and the clinical experience of the authors.
