Sick cats can be a tough call

Add the NEW SNAP fPL (feline pancreas-specific lipase) Test to the diagnostic work up of an off colour cat to determine if pancreatitis is likely.

Feline pancreatitis is more common than you think.

In fact, 39%1 of all standalone Spec fPL tests sent to IDEXX Laboratories were consistent with pancreatitis (>5.4 ug/L).

Introducing SNAP fPL, the only pet-side test to measure feline pancreas-specific lipase.

  • Amylase and lipase are not helpful in diagnosing pancreatitis in cats2. fPL technology is the most accurate test available (79% sensitivity and 80% specificity).3
  • Obtain a result in 10 minutes, enabling timely communication with a concerned pet owner and move ahead with appropriate diagnostics and treatment.
