Diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss are the common symptoms of CCE.
The word enteropathy really means an unhealthy gut. This can be due to food sensitivity, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or other problems.
The question is why the duration and severity of the symptoms, as well as response to treatment vary.
What is the role of the gut bugs and how does the gut ecosystem change in dogs treated for CCE?
Considering the fact, that a human body, for example, contains ten times more bacterial cells than human cells, it figures that bacteria play important role in how the body works.
Understanding this symbiosis could lead to better diagnostics and treatments.
