Enteritis is inflammation of the small intestine. There are many causes of enteritis, including micro-organisms (bacteria, viruses, and fungi), foreign matter (bones, wood, plant material, etc.), allergies, emotional disturbances, parasites, neurologic problems of the bowel, and enzyme deficiencies. Determining the cause of your pet’s enteritis may require laboratory tests and radiographs (x-rays).
Important Points in Treatment
1. A complete cure is the usual goal of treatment, but some cases can only be controlled. Your doctor will advise you if complete recovery is not expected.
