Why the Gut Microbiome Matters: Understanding How “Inner Workings” Affect Canine and Feline Health with Dr. Jenessa A. Winston | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts
In today’s VETgirl podcast, we interview Dr. Jenessa A. Winston, DVM, PhD, DACVIM from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine about the importance of the gastrointestinal (GI) microbiome! Why does gut microbiome matter, and what is its function? How does the gut microbiome affect other body systems, and when should we care about acute or chronic dysbiosis in dogs and cats. Are there tools available to assess the gut microbiome and how accessible and reliable are they to veterinarians in practice today? More importantly, what do we do clinically when we suspect that our patients suffer from GI dysbiosis? Is it diet, metronidazole, fecal transplants or what? Tune in to learn what’s new with the latest research in gut microbiome.
