In part two of our chat with Dr. Tolbert, we talk about how and when to use gastric acid suppressant drugs in cats. Dr. Tolbert talks about the need for more research in cats and how we cannot extrapolate data from dogs or humans to our feline patients. She is a big fan of the Winn Feline Foundation (we are too!). Dr. Tolbert received a grant from Winn in 2018 to study novel gastroprotectants in cats.
We had so much fun talking with Dr. Stanley Marks of UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine that we recorded two podcasts while we were at New York Vet. Here is part two, where we talk about the best diagnostic approach for gastrointestinal disease, whether full thickness biopsy is better than endoscopic biopsy, how to use cobalamin as a diagnostic tool and for treatment, and how to tell inflammatory bowel disease from lymphoma. Enjoy!
Dr. Stanley Marks loves small animal gastroenterology so we were thrilled to have the chance to record 2 podcasts with him during New York Vet 2018. Stan is also a rare animal – he holds a PhD and is boarded in Internal Medicine, Oncology, and Nutrition! Stan is currently Professor at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and has an impressive list of publications to his name. In part one, we talk about chronic enteropathies in cats and what we know and don’t know about fecal transplants.
