Focus: GI Disease. Vomiting and diarrhea are common presenting
signs in small animal practice. This year we will travel down the GI tract from
the esophagus to the stomach to the intestinal tract. We will also cover the “accessory”
GI organs, the pancreas and liver. Our goal is to discuss the most commonly
seen esophageal, gastric, small intestinal and pancreatic diseases. We will also present
the latest information on treating vomiting and chronic liver disease and the role of
prebiotics and probiotics.
