Gastrointestinal tract diseases are very common in everyday practice. This case-based presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of the revised classification of chronic enteropathies in the dog, and will review the step-by-step diagnostic workup of dogs presenting with chronic vomiting or diarrhea. The pros and cons of different diagnostic tests will be reviewed, as well as the most common causes for chronic refractory diarrhea. The seminar will also highlight the dietary and medical therapeutic considerations for the dog with chronic enteropathy.
