Abstract

An understanding of the anatomy of the feline vestibular system is essential for interpretation of the clinical signs associated with vestibular dysfunction, for precise lesion localisation, and for accurate interpretation of results of diagnostic imaging. Appropriate recognition and interpretation of the clinical signs of vestibular disease is also an essential aspect of the precise diagnosis of the cause of vestibular dysfunction in cats. The objectives of this review are to provide an overview of the anatomy of the feline vestibular system, and to review the clinical signs of peripheral and central vestibular dysfunction of cats.
