NASO-OESOPHAGEAL tube feeding is a useful method for providing dogs and cats with their nutritional requirements when they are either too ill or traumatised to eat voluntarily. This important aspect of patient treatment is often neglected. Yet, if unattended, the animal will not only suffer from the effects of the original illness, but also from the secondary effects of malnutrition. The latter increase patients' recovery time and may even threaten their survival. By introducing appropriate supplementary nutrition early on, many animals may be saved or returned to health more quickly.
