"The importance of the intestinal microbiome in canine gastrointestinal disorders" presented by Linda Toresson

The intestinal microbiome is a complex ecosystem that has a profound effect on gut health and functionality beyond food digestion.

This lecture offers a practically oriented crash course on gut health and the canine intestinal microbiome in disease and health.

The aim is to help clinicians understand why we should care about the intestinal microbiome when treating our canine patients with gastrointestinal disorders, and provide tools that can be used to positively influence the microbiome and gut health in dogs when gastrointestinal disease is present.

Dr Toresson is currently serving as the Head of Gastroenterology Service at the Evidensia Specialist Animal Hospital, Helsingborg, Sweden and is affiliated with Helsinki University as an external researcher and post-doc with a research interest focused on the clinical aspects of gastroenterology in particular the intestinal microbiota and metabolomics, and tools to modulate the microbiome beyond antibiotics.

Dr Toresson is a member of several advisory boards and is the current president of the European Society of Comparative Gastroenterology. Her current research projects involves a longitudinal study on the effects of faecal microbiota transplantation on dogs with chronic enteropathies, and faecal bile acids and bile acid diarrhoea.
