Abstract
Chronic Vomiting in Cats: We Really can Diagnose and Treat It
The lecture challenges the notion that chronic vomiting is “normal” for cats. It shows that chronic vomiting, chronic diarrhea, and weight loss are frequently due to chronic small bowel disease. The appropriate work up will be shown as well as how to treat chronic small bowel disease when the specific cause is determined. This is a “Learn it and Use it” lecture.

Inappropriate Elimination: Save Them from a Bad Fate
Inappropriate elimination is the number one behavior problem of indoor cats. It often begins with a medical problem that is quickly complicated by a behavior problem. Dr. Norsworthy will show you how to deal with both issues in a practical manner.

The Diabetic Cat: Don’t Let it Drive You Crazy
Frustration is the feeling many practitioners get when managing diabetic cats. Dr. Norsworthy will tell you his secrets for doing so with less stress of the cat, the owner, and you. His use of Loose Control for the past 25 years is proven to be successful.

Chronic Renal Disease: It’s Time for Calcitriol and High Protein Diets
A new study shows that calcitriol can add months to years of quality life to cats with CRD. The use of high protein diets (not a typo) will add even more to that. Come to this lecture with an open mind.
