🐕 Yellow discoloration of the mucous membranes is called jaundice or icterus (you can also commonly see yellow discoloration in the sclera of the eyes and pinnae of the ears). This happens when excessive amounts of bilirubin accumulates in the circulation. Bilirubin occurs normally from the destruction/breakdown of red blood cells. Excessive amounts of bilirubin in the blood stream is called hyperbilirubinemia. There are 3️⃣ primary causes: pre-hepatic, primary hepatic and post hepatic. Possible pre-hepatic causes (too much bilirubin production): hemolysis due to IMHA, infectious, toxin or neoplasia. Possible primary hepatic causes (the liver can’t remove the bilirubin from the bloodstream): cholangiohepatitis, hepatic lipidosis, infectious, neoplasia, toxin or idiopathic chronic hepatitis. Possible post hepatic causes (biliary obstruction): pancreatitis, fibrosis and scarring from chronic inflammation, pseudocyst, abscess, choleliths, neoplasia, biliary mucocele, gall bladder issue. . 📸 thank you to Syd Scott for taking this photo. . . . .Follow us @vetpocket 🐾 . . . . . #jaundice #icterus #imha #hepatitis #liverdisease #vet#vetpocket #veterinary #veterinarytechnician #vet #vettech #veterinarian #vetschool #vettechlife #vetassistant #vetmed #vetstudent #vetsnobiety #veterinarymedicine #veterinaryclinic #veterinarynurse #vettechproblems #vettechstudent #vethospital #veterinaryhospital #veterinarylife #vtne #vetlife #prevet #dvm
