Treatment response in dogs with chronic enteropathy

Treatment response in dogs with chronic enteropathy

A study evaluated 21 dogs with chronic enteropathy and examined the treatment response and long-term outcome. After diagnostic investigation, dogs underwent therapeutic trials first with diet then antibiotics, and finally immunosuppressants. Success was defined as 75% reduction of clinical severity for a minimum of five weeks. One dog was euthanized for lack of response to treatment and one excluded for lack of owner compliance.

Results:

Most dogs responded to diet (n = 10), followed by antibiotics (n = 7) and immunosuppressants (n = 2).

Long-term remission was achieved in eight out of ten dietary responders without additional treatment.

In contrast, only two dogs with antibiotic response remained in long-term remission, of which one needed on-going antibiotic treatment.

Longer term remission was achieved in the two dogs treated with immunosuppressants with on-going low dose therapy.
