6th Annual Gulf-Atlantic Veterinary Conference
This presentation builds on Addressing the Anorexic Patient 1 and moves into various assisted-feeding techniques for use in small animals. We will discuss what options are appropriate, for which animals and when to suggest them. Feeding options discussed will be nasogastric (NG) and nasoesophageal (NE) tubes, esophageal tubes, and gastric tubes. Placement of NG/NE and esophageal tubes will be reviewed with practical tips for placement.
