Title:Review: Nutritional care of Acute and Chronic Diarrhoea as well of Parvovirus infected dogs
When it comes to acute and chronic enteritis, a highly digestible diet is suggested. If the patient has a hypersensitivity to the food, a hypoallergenic or novel protein source should be suggested or even hydrolysed protein. Low fat food but using highly digestible fat with high caloric value should be used. Medium chain triglycerides should be the main source of fat in catabolic patients. Low amount of crude fibre should be used. Soluble fibres like beet pulp and rice bran should be used instead of non-soluble fibres as they help in binding the non-absorbed fluid into gels.
