More About The Speaker

Ken practices at Adobe Animal Hospital in California as an ICU and Blood Bank Manager. He is an active educator, lecturing internationally and providing practical instruction on-site and online, on topics including transfusion medicine, respiratory therapy, and critical care nursing. He serves on the board for VECCS, and as the NAVTA State Representative Committee chair, and is a graduate student in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery through the University of Missouri. Ken invites everyone to ask "Why?" to understand the "What" and "How" of our field, and to constantly pursue new limits as veterinary professionals.

About The Topic

Canine parvovirus infections cause severe gastroenteritis and lead to dehydration, shock, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and sepsis when left untreated. One simple to implement, therapy that makes a significant difference in survival chance is enteral feeding started within hours of admission, even when vomiting. Even when vomiting? Yes, even when vomiting. There are many reasons nutritional intervention serves a key role in the recovery of critical care patients. Let’s discuss why this is the case.

Goals:

  • Describe the pathophysiology and list treatment options for parvovirus enteritis
  • Describe the effect of enteral nutrition on the gastrointestinal tract
  • Create a basic nutritional plan for parvovirus patients
