What are the consequences of malnutrition? What is nutritional support? When is the right time to start nutritional support? Does refeeding syndrome truly exist? When should you start feeding patients after gastrointestinal surgery?

These are some of the things that we discuss in this podcast which features Dan Chan who is Head of the Emergency and Critical Care services and Clinical Nutritionist at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals. Nutritional support of veterinary patients is an area that has received quite a lot of attention in recent times so be sure to listen to this episode!
