Early Nutritional Management in Dogs and Cats With Acute Pancreatitis

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    Until recently, traditional management of the acute pancreatitis patient included an order of NPO so as to decrease pancreatic stimulation. The benefits of early enteral nutrition, however, have been demonstrated.

    This Evidence Based Update explains the rationale for early enteral nutrition and options for providing nutrition to affected patients as discussed in a recent publication: Nutritional management of acute pancreatitis in dogs and cats. Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care, Vol 24(3), 2014, pp 240-250. Authors: KB Jensen, DL Chan
