Feline injection site sarcomas

Rachel Hattersley

Feline injection sarcomas are highly aggressive mesenchymal tumours which occur at the site of a previous injection, leading to an inflammatory reaction and uncontrolled fibroblast proliferation.  It is important to note that although vaccines are often implicated in the development of such tumours, feline injection site sarcomas can be associated with all subcutaneous injections including microchipping.  Although infrequent (estimated at 1-10 per 10,000 vaccinations), management of these tumours is challenging due to their size and locally invasive nature.  Distant metastasis occurs in only approximately 20% of cases, however local recurrence is reported in up to 40% of cats with apparently clean histopathological margins.

Management of these tumours requires detailed and appropriate pre-operative advanced imaging for staging and to aid with surgical planning.  Wide surgical margins and a well planned surgery by an experienced surgeon have been associated with the lowest recurrence rates and reconstruction of such excisions can be challenging.  Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are also an essential part of the management of feline injection site sarcomas. This talk will aim to address both the epidemiology and suspected aetiopathogenesis of feline injection site sarcomas and also discuss the surgical management, post-operative care and neoadjunctive/adjunctive therapies used in the treatment of such tumours.

Rachel Hattersley BVetMed(Hons) CertSAS DipECVS MRCVS, European specialist in small animal surgery at  Davies Veterinary Specialists.

Feline adrenal disease

Sarah Caney

Feline adrenal disease is an often overlooked but important area of endocrinology. Cats, like dogs, suffer from both hyper- and hypoadrenocorticism. Primary hyperaldosteronism is under-diagnosed adrenal condition usually caused by an adrenal tumour which, typically, can result in systemic hypertension and/or marked hypokalaemia. Recognition, diagnosis and management of all of these conditions (and more!) will be discussed in the webinar.

Sarah is a 1993 graduate of the University of Bristol where she also did her residency in feline medicine and PhD. She is an RCVS Specialist in Feline Medicine and enjoys seeing a mixture of first opinion and referral feline patients. Sarah is especially interested in the care of geriatric cats and her company conducts clinical research via Specialist clinics she runs at Edinburgh vet school and online questionnaires submitted by cat owners. She has written a number of books for cat owners and veterinary professionals including ‘Caring for a cat with chronic kidney disease’, ‘Caring for a cat with hyperthyroidism’ and ‘Caring for a cat with lower urinary tract disease’ published by her company Cat Professional.

Natural Stem Cell Enhancers In All Species

Paul Boland

During the last 12 years there has been groundbreaking research into how the natural repair and renewal system of the body works. New research has shown that adult stem cells from the bone marrow are mobilised by molecules sent from damaged cells. The adult stem cells then migrate to the damaged cells, where other molecules that have been released from the damaged cells cause the adult stem cells to multiply and then differentiate into those damaged cells.

There are now natural extracts from a blue-green algae that contain molecules that cause the bone marrow to release millions extra adult stem cells. Thus the natural repair and renewal system of the body is enhanced. We have been using these products in people and animals for over 1 year with fantastic results. There are now 6 Veterinary Practices in the UK using these products. In total over 400 dogs, 20 cats, some birds and 30 horses have been treated using these products.

Paul Boland BVSc MRCVS is a Partner at Alder Veterinary Hospital, Liverpool. He lectures on Canine Reproduction to the fourth years Students at Liverpool. Combining herbs, nutraceuticals, acupuncture and more recently natural stem cell enhancers, he is able to treat a large proportion of his patients naturally. Paul is a writer for the magazine What Doctors Don’t Tell You and his website is www.naturalhealthvet.com

Battling Injection Site Sarcomas and other Mesenchymal Tumours in Cats

David Argyle

The first description of Feline Injection Site Sarcoma (FISS) was by Hendrick, and Goldschmidt in 1991 and was originally termed Vaccine-Associated Sarcoma, as the original epidemiological data in the USA suggested a strong association between the disease and vaccination with either Rabies or Feline Leukeamia virus (FeLV) vaccines.  Since this time, studies investigating the pathophysiology of this disease have indicated that any foreign material injected into cats that can cause local and intense inflammatory response could lead to this disease.   The disease has been reported all over the world with varying incidence.  However, the main characteristics of this disease remain constant.  It is a disease of low metastatic potential but is highly locally invasive.  Often there is a significant lag period between the injection, and the ultimate development of a tumour.  However, once the tumour develops, there is often observed a period of rapid growth.  Single modality therapy is rarely curative, and sophisticated imaging technologies are required to determine the extent of disease prior to treatment.  The pathogenesis of this disease is still poorly understood but has led to a number of recommendations in terms of vaccination strategies and how to manage post-vaccination lumps.  The aim of this short synopsis is to present our current understanding of this disease and how that influences the clinical decisions we make.  Specifically we will focus on:

  • The current thinking on vaccine choice and vaccine recommendations in cats
  • Decision making for post vaccine lumps
  • Decision making if a tumour develops, including clinical approach and imaging modalities
  • The role of surgery in this disease and the controversial roles of chemotherapy and radiation.  We will include in this the possible use of the new tyrosine kinase inhibitors.

Finally we will discuss some other challenging mesenchymal tumours in cats.

Mycobacteria in cats

Professor Danièlle A. Gunn-Moore

Tuberculosis (TB) has recently become topical again. Most people have heard of TB in humans, cattle and badgers, and now people are talking about TB in cats. What we therefore need to know is does it occur, what sort of TB is it, and is it a risk to humans? Danièlle Gunn-Moore will discuss in great detail in this webinar.

Danièlle Gunn-Moore graduated with Distinction from the R(D)SVS, University of Edinburgh, in 1991. After a year in small animal practice she joined The Feline Centre, University of Bristol, initially as the Feline Advisory Bureau Scholar, then the Duphar Feline Fellow, and completed a PhD study into Feline Infectious Peritonitis in 1997. After a short period as Lecturer in Veterinary Pathology, University of Bristol, she returned to Edinburgh to establish the Feline Clinic. She is now Professor of Feline Medicine and Head of Companion Animal Sciences. She is interested in all aspects of feline medicine; she is an internationally recognised expert in her area, lectures extensively and her work has been published widely. In 2009 she was awarded the BSAVA Woodrow Award for outstanding contribution in the field of small animal veterinary medicine, and in 2011 she was awarded the International Society for Feline Medicine / Hill’s award for Outstanding Contributions to Feline Medicine.
