WVC 92nd Annual Conference
Chronic airway disorders are among the most common types of respiratory diseases for which cats require veterinary attention. Historically, these airway disorders have centered on pathology of the large airways and include allergic asthma, chronic bronchitis and parasitic bronchitis. Recently, a new type of airway disorder has been described in cats that centers on pathology of the small airways. This lecture will cover similarities and differences between large and small airway disorders.
