Gastrointestinal upset is one of the most common disorders seen in dogs and cats. Dietary management is often recommended as part or all of the treatment strategy. The traditional advice of simply recommending a “bland diet” has become confusing as there are now dozens of pet foods claiming to help with GI disease. There are even pet owners (and veterinarians) who recommend raw foods to treat GI upset, and a recent trend toward recommending “low-carb” diets for these conditions in cats. This presentation will attempt to sort through claims and help practitioners select appropriate diets for common GI disorders.
