To understand disease processes relating to stomach and intestines it is vital to have a practical understanding of non-digestive functions such as the gut immune system, hepatic metabolism and the operation of the liver and pancreas. After you’ve completed this course, you’ll be able to confidently investigate, diagnose and treat dogs and cats presenting with a disease of gastrointestinal, hepatic or pancreatic origin. Effectively communicate issues in these areas to clients and colleagues.

Canine and Feline Gastroenterology takes an innovative case-based learning approach, and is highly interactive.

  • There will be a forum to debate the medical issues

Learning outcomes:

  • Competently investigate, diagnose and manage dogs and cats presenting with disease of gastrointestinal, hepatic or pancreatic origin.
  • Correctly differentiate these diseases from those of other body systems.
  • Source and evaluate information from the literature to allow analysis and critique of case management.
  • Advise owners of management options in the light of current literature including referral.
