Canine perianal fistulae or furunculosis is one of the most frustrating diseases a veterinary clinician can face. The inflammatory process is extremely painful and has a devastating effect on the patient, resulting in pet-guardians demanding quick and effective treatment. However, although multiple surgical and medical treatments have been tried, none of them a reliably effective and therapy remains very challenging.

A international multidisciplinary panel of world-renowned experts, will discuss causes, diagnostic approaches and most importantly their preferred treatment options.  The specialists will share valuable tips and tricks and attempt to reach a consensus on what is currently the most effective strategy to manage these patients.  As part of this interactive discussion the attendees will get plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share their own experience.
