Cholangitis/cholangiohepatitis in cats

‘Cholangitis’ means inflammation of the bile system in the liver. This inflammation can spread to the liver itself and is sometimes termed ‘cholangiohepatitis’. It can cause a severe disease that comes on suddenly. However, many cats have episodes where their cholangitis flares up and they are unwell for a few days to weeks followed by periods where they appear to be completely normal. In cats it is common to have cholangitis alongside inflammation of the liver, pancreas and/or intestines which is known as triaditis.
