At some point, most pet owners are faced with a cat that has a poor
appetite or other signs of gastrointestinal upset. With so many possible
causes, knowing how to handle these issues can be confusing. Now cat
owners can find expert advice and answers to their questions online,
thanks to a newly released video series developed by Cornell
University’s Partners in Animal Health program. The videos, made
possible with a gift from Nestle Purina PetCare, provide cat
owners with information on a variety of gastrointestinal topics.
Veterinary specialists at Cornell University Hospital for Animals
offer insight and advice on topics ranging from how to decide when your
cat needs to go to the veterinarian to options for the diagnosis,
treatment, and prevention of many common gastrointestinal conditions in
cats. Specific segments focus on food allergies, dietary sensitivity,
inflammatory bowel disease, diarrhea associated with diet changes,
antibiotic-induced diarrhea, and gastrointestinal parasites.
Also included in the series is a convenient GI History form that can be printed, completed, and taken to your cat's veterinary appointment- giving your veterinarian more time to focus on your pet during the appointment.
