New Perspectives on Gastrointestinal Health​

New Perspectives on Gastrointestinal Health

“Changes in the gut microbiome create ripples throughout other body systems via immune cells in the gastrointestinal tract that connect to the wider immune system. Not only does the gut-brain axis have a role to play but also the gut-lung axis.

“Through these mechanisms and interactions, the gut microbiome shapes the body’s immune and inflammatory responses.”

Find out about the latest research on the gut microbiome and the effects on pet health in this e-book, which includes:

  • six fully referenced articles
  • a flow chart to aid decision making
