How can we use diets to effectively manage small animals with various disease? 

This course is aimed at general practitioners with an interest in small animal gastroenterology, dermatology and nutrition who are often faced with conditions which will require dietary modifications. The course will provide you with practical tips on how to differentiate such cases from other chronic gastrointestinal and dermatological cases, how to treat them and how to educate the owners on the use of hypoallergenic, exclusion and home cooked diets. Some controversial topics will be tackled and lively debates are assured!
