This webinar is designed to provide veterinary professionals with a better understanding of the causes, presentations, and treatment options in regard to managing acute to chronic GI upset in dogs and cats. Learn why feeding through GI upset is now recommended over the traditional recommendation of fasting, and the move away from antibiotics as treatment for GI upset. Dr. Ian Sandler introduces the products in Grey Wolf’s +GI portfolio and outlines how they are used in each stage of GI upset, and how they can be packaged together as a GI Emergency Kit to reduce unnecessary visits to the clinic and keep everyone safe. Dr. Sandler explains how the +GI products are effective in maximizing clinical outcomes and getting patients back on their paws, sooner.
