Special Issue "Gastrointestinal Health of Dogs and Cats"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
I am excited to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on animal gastroenterology that I have the honor of editing for Animals.
Gastroenterology in the daily lives of companion animals has become a dominant field with new approaches to the various gastroenterological diseases. The research on dysbiosis has allowed for a better understanding of its role in the pathophysiology of gastrointestinal inflammation, and in hepatic and pancreatic involvement.
This aspect has become very important in recent years and has made it necessary to review the therapeutic approaches. First of all, there are limitations regarding the use of antibiotics, respecting international guidelines for the control of antibiotic resistance. On the other hand, small animal gastroenterology, in line with human medicine, provides interesting research topics on the relationship between the digestive system and systems that may be directly or indirectly involved in the pathological process and in influencing the general prognosis and therapeutic approach.
This Special Issue of Animals aims to disseminate some of the most significant and recent research regarding gastroenterology in dogs and cats. Authors are invited to submit original research papers and review articles exploring hepatic, pancreatic and gastrointestinal diseases.
