Abstract

Anorexia is a common problem in dogs and occurs with a myriad of diseases. It is more than merely a sign of disease. Prolonged absence of food intake adversely effects all body systems, making it more difficult for dog to resist the effects of disease and recover and respond to therapy. A variety of products and many methods available for their delivery provide sufficient combinations to ensure that nutrient deprivation need not add further insult to injury or disease. Fasting for longer than three days result in enterocyte deterioration and decreased gastrointestinal immunity. Translocation of enteric bacteria may take place across a compromised intestinal mucosal barrier. it is a problem which must be recognized and dealt with clinically. This paper describes the selection of patient that needs nutritional support and various methods by which of nutritional support can be provided to an anorectic dog to avoid further complications of the underlying cause of the problem and to speed-up recovery from disease.
