Cobalamin and folate deficiency is commonly found in dogs and cats and is associated with a wide range of primary diseases. Signs of deficiency include anorexia, weight loss, anaemia and intestinal changes including villous atrophy and malabsorption of other vitamins and nutrients. In dogs hypocobalaminaemia is a negative prognostic indicator and associated with an increased risk of euthanasia. Restoration of normal serum cobalamin levels usually involves repeated parenteral injections. This presentation will discuss the reasons for, and consequences of, cobalamin and folate deficiency and data to support oral cobalamin use.
