About The Webinar

Nutrition plays a key role in the management of gastrointestinal disease, and some cases may be managed by dietary therapy alone. Dietary ingredients can have negative or positive effect on the bowel. The diet may contain toxins, allergens, toxic dietary excesses or nutritional deficiencies. The diet also has a direct effect on the intestinal physiology, affecting motility, cell renewal rate, bacterial flora, enzyme production, ammonia production, and volatile fatty acid content. Several types of diets have been developed for gastrointestinal disorders and dietary supplements are also available.

In this webinar, Dr Marge Chandler discusses dietary management of acute and chronic diarrhoea, including that caused by inflammatory bowel disease, adverse reactions to food, the use of dietary fibre in treatment of gastrointestinal disease, supplementation with vitamins and neutraceuticals, and dietary therapy of canine and feline pancreatopathies.
