As small animal veterinarians, we see patients with gastrointestinal symptoms every day. At first
presentation, the possibilities seem endless. It's vital for us to have a practical working knowledge
of when patients are showing GI side effects of systemic disease, when they have primary GI disease,
how to go about getting to the bottom of the problem, and what to do about it.
Join us in Nacogdoches, Texas this November 1 & 2, 2014, for a weekend Seminar on "Practical
Gastroenterology", the newest subject released in Dr. Blount's popular "Practical" Seminar Series.
