Gastroprotectants are commonly prescribed in patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy with glucocorticoids. Presently, there is limited evidence to support such use of gastroprotectants. The objective of this study was to establish if the prophylactic use of gastroprotectants was associated with a reduced incidence of gastrointestinal signs in dogs receiving immunosuppressive doses of glucocorticoids, compared to not receiving prophylactic gastroprotectants.

Therapy and prognosis are entailed by the diagnosis: the holistic success of the EBVM approach therefore firmly and critically rests on diagnostic accuracy. Unfortunately, medical professionals do not appear to be very accurate with diagnoses. In human medicine, there is 30-50% discordance reported between doctors’ ante- (presumptive) and post-mortem (definitive) diagnoses, with no significant change in the last 100 years (Goldberg et al 2002). Veterinary surgeons do not perform much better, although it is a chronically under-researched area. This talk looks at how vets and vet nurses can maximise their impact on clinical performance.
