Lecture Summary:

Patients with an acute abdomen are not uncommon in small animal practice. They present a considerable diagnostic challenge due to the large differential diagnoses for this condition.

The only way this differential diagnoses can be reduced to ultimately provide a definitive diagnosis is through a thorough and systematic investigation. This is important as the cause of an acute abdomen may require either a medical or surgical approach to treatment .

This course will review the differential diagnoses of acute abdomen, discuss how to evaluate the clinical presentation, discuss selection of appropriate diagnostic tests and how to interpret the results.

While carrying out the investigation it is important to stabilise the patient without compromising the diagnostics employed.

Symptomatic treatment of acute abdomen will therefore also be discussed. Clinical cases will be used to illustrate the approaches to these patients.
