A Logical Approach To GI Disease 12th June
Date: Monday 12th June, 2023
Start time: 10:00 AM
Many gastrointestinal cases are short-lived and will resolve with minimal treatment, but when the patient’s presentation is more protracted or severe, a more involved approach to investigations and treatment is required. This one-day course will look at the approach to acute GI disease as well as the more complex and chronic cases including acute haemorrhagic diarrhoea syndrome in dogs, protein losing enteropathies in dogs, and chronic GI disease in cats. Discussion of investigative options will enable you to have informed conversations with your clients about the pros and cons of diet trials, GI biopsies, faecal testing and more, and will help you develop a systematic approach to these cases, especially the ones that are less clear-cut. Real-life suggestions for real-life GI cases!
Topics to be covered:
Investigation of GI disease: from clever history taking and clinical examination to choosing appropriate further diagnostic tests
Acute GI disease: appropriate treatments and those to avoid
