Come join us this September 9 & 10, 2017, for Dr. Blount's very popular "Practical Gastroenterology" Weekend Seminar! A wealth of knowledge is available you can put to use immediately in your clinic concerning the diagnosing and treating of dogs and cats with diseases involving the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas.

As small animal veterinarians, we see patients with gastrointestinal symptoms almost every day. At first, the possibilities for these symptoms seem endless. This is why it is vital for us to have a practical working knowledge of when patients are showing GI side effects of systemic disease, or when they have primary GI disease. Then we need to know how to quickly and efficiently get to the bottom of the problem and how to most effectively determine at a solution.

This Seminar will cover the following important subjects and more:
  • working up and treating vomiting and regurgitation, in a step-wise fashion
  • working up and treating diarrhea, in a step wise fashion
  • working up and treating elevated liver enzymes, in a step wise fashion
  • dealing with the many faces of pancreatitis
  • what to do with the yellow dog or cat
  • placing and managing feeding tubes in every day practice where there is no endoscope
  • managing the acute abdomen -- to cut or not to cut?
