What is triaditis? Strictly spoken, it is the involvement of three organs = trias (liver, pancreas, intestines) in an inflammatory process. Cats with triaditis suffer from concurrent pancreatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and cholangitis. Unfortunately, it is not always as straight forward as this. Some cats show a combination of all three diseases some not. In some of them, there is purely immune-mediated disease, in some suppurative inflammation and bacterial infection complicates the disease process and challenges us with respect to treatment regimen.

What causes triaditis? That is a million dollar question. Current theories involve dietary allergens that stimulate the immune system, hereditary factors, and the impact of bacterial infections that move from the intestines into the bile duct. Others believe that triaditis starts in the bile duct, with the inflammation then flaring up in the pancreas and intestines. Let’s have a closer look on how to diagnose triaditis and what to do about it therapeutically.
