About The Webinar

Diarrhoea is common presenting sign in small animal practice and has a wide variety of potential underlying causes, with quite different aetiologies and treatments. This webinar will focus on the approach to these patients, with presentation, clinical examination and historical clues, that can help us narrow the list of possible causes, before discussing the differential diagnosis for both acute and chronic presentations. We will look at laboratory findings discussing which tests may be useful and when during investigations we should use these. We will then review the treatment options of both acute and chronic diarrhoea. We will look at how these can be used to help narrow the differential diagnosis and what is the best options for dietary management in these cases. We will finish by discussing the decision of when and how to take biopsies of the gastrointestinal tract and what these results can tell you, to guide patient management.
