Abstract

Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency is thought to occur rarely in cats. This assumption has been made based on the lack of a specific test for this disease in the cat. Clinical data from the 1st 20 cats with serum feline trypsin-like immunoreactivity (fTLI) concentrations < or = 8 microg/L are presented. In 17 of these 20 cats compelling evidence for a diagnosis of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) was present and in the remaining 3 supportive evidence for a diagnosis of EPI was available. The conclusion was made that serum fTLI concentration is a specific test for EPI in the cat.
