Cat Fatty Liver Diagnosis

Your cat with hepatic lipidosis signs should see a vet immediately.

A medical history and physical exam will be done by your vet. Provide as much information as possible about your cat's symptoms, nutrition, and medications.

In addition to the history and physical examination, your veterinarian will use bloodwork, abdominal ultrasound, and tissue sampling to diagnose hepatic lipidosis. 

Bloodwork will show liver disease symptoms include increased liver enzymes. Anemia and abnormal potassium and sodium levels may be seen in bloodwork.

Liver enlargement is shown on abdominal ultrasonography. Your vet will also check the kidneys and pancreas for illness during the ultrasound.

Biopsy or ultrasound-guided FNA is the best approach to identify hepatic lipidosis.
