The diagnosis of guttural pouch disease often prompts a response of disgust or dismay from many clinicians. It is a hard area to access, making conditions a challenge to treat, and may prove life-threatening if managed inappropriately. Over the past two decades there have however been great advancements in recognition, technology and treatment options that have dramatically improved the successful treatment of guttural pouch diseases. The international multidisciplinary panel of world-renowned specialists will discuss those advancements and tips and tricks they have acquired along the way managing everything from guttural pouch empyema, mycosis and tympany to temporhyoid disease. Even if you are not the one treating the disease, understanding the problem, and knowing when to refer, may make a significant difference to the animal.
