Most dogs with chronic enteropathy will experience clinical improvement with dietary therapy, but knowing when, why, and how to implement diet as therapy can be challenging. Using both theoretical and case-based approaches, Dr. Alison Manchester will navigate these hurdles to maximize the benefits of diet in chronic enteropathy patients. An emphasis will be placed on communication strategies known to improve client compliance with regard to nutritional therapy.
What you’ll learn:
· Recognize chronic GI patients likely to improve with dietary therapy
· Gain an understanding of the pathophysiologic rationale behind a dedicated feeding trial
· Review communication strategies that can help optimize outcomes when prescribing diets
