This Free CPD Podcast is produced by the Cone of Shame Veterinary Podcasts. Dr. Andy Roark talks with veterinary nutritionist Dr. Jackie Parr about a case of a puppy with ongoing diarrhoea. They cover how to approach the first consultation with owners and the best way to get a thorough history of the patients diet.
Checking body condition score and tracking the puppies growth using a breed appropriate growth chart is a useful way to detect any underlying problems. We hear what Dr Parr would do next if there was evidence of reduced growth and possible underlying causes.
At what point should a puppy be moved onto a specialised gastrointestinal sensitivity diet? And how useful are poop charts when communicating with owners? Related Podcasts:
