250 – Chronic Enteropathy (CE) Panel

Please [log in] or [register] to see pricing.


The Chronic Enteropathy (CE) Panel is used for the diagnosis of disease in the dog or cat with chronic GI signs.  Acute Phase Proteins CRP (dog) and HPT (cat) have been shown to be effective markers of CE.  Coupled with essential vitamins B12, Folate, and Vitamin D, along with Total Protein, Albumin, Globulin, and the AG ratio, this panel can identify the presence of Chronic Enteropathies in the GI dog or cat.

VDI offers a range of additional tests that can help diagnose the CE with more confidence: GI Lymphoma Panel or the all-inclusive Advanced GI Panel.

Clinical Applications:

  1. Chronic GI cat or dog
    • GI Cat or Dog
    • ADR (Ain’t Doing Right)
    • Suspicious signs/imaging


The Chronic Enteropathy Panel should be performed prior to administration of steroids, chemo, NSAIDs or other therapy whenever possible.  VDI can interpret results around the presence of therapy, but please be sure to indicate on the Test Requisition Form any medications at the time of draw.
