Although many patients present with transient gastrointestinal upset that are easily treated, the patients with either recurrent intermittent signs, or persistent chronic signs can be very challenging for both attending clinician and owner. This course will therefore use case examples and a problem-orientated medicine approach to address:

How to approach patients with both acute and chronic gastrointestinal clinical signs.

The construction of a differential diagnosis list for these signs and how to use this to construct a logical diagnostic plan and (hopefully) reach an accurate diagnosis

Updates on the treatments for chronic enteropathy/IBD and pancreatitis in both cats and dogs

A review of gastrointestinal neoplasia, how to diagnose it and what to do about it

A review of where we are with raw diets; what is the evidence for and against them?

Learning objectives:

1. Understanding the importance of, and improving the delegates ability in, the identification of oesophageal, gastric, intestinal or extra-intestinal origins for the clinical signs in question

2. Improving delegates ability to create accurate differential diagnosis lists and then using problem-orientated medicine to narrow these down to reach a diagnosis
