About The Webinar

Anorexia is a common clinical sign in small animal practice and is associated with a wide variety of diseases. In many cases, failure to provide nutritional support can lead to a catabolic state associated with increased morbidity and prolonged hospital stays. Assisted feeding allows the clinician to supply nutrition to anorexic patients usually via feeding tubes. In this webinar we will discuss the use of tube feeding in dogs and cats, including the use of naso-oesophageal, oesophagostomy and gastrostomy tubes. Tube placement will be described followed by an overview of tube care, complications associated with tube feeding and a discussion of diet selection for critically ill patients.
