Recorded Webinar: Clinical Relevance Of Gut Bacteria In Health And Disease
Royal Veterinary College
Duration: 2 hour(s)
About this course
This webinar we will look at the role that bacteria play in chronic intestinal diseases in dogs and cats. We will question the usefulness of faecal cultures in cases of chronic diarrhoea in light of the fact that many bacteria can be cultured from healthy or diseased animals in similar frequency. We will discuss what the current recommendations are regarding testing and treatment of specific bacterial infections, such as campylobacter, clostridia perfringens and difficile, salmonella and helicobacter. We will also look at the bigger picture and try and investigate a bit into the relationship of commensals and the intestinal immune system- and what role probiotics have in the treatment of diarrhoea in cats and dogs.
