Join us for an exhilarating hour discussion on the importance of the microflora of the gastrointestinal tract. The scientific community continues to evolve daily around the widespread impacts the intestinal microflora has on wider physiology in both humans and animals. Short-term and long-term complications arise with imbalances to this delicate ecosystem. We will hear from Dr. Nick Cave in this webinar about the current state and future aspirations of microflora management in companion animal patients.
Nick Cave graduated from Massey University (NZ) in 1990 with a BVSc, and worked in general practice for 6 years until 1997, when he returned to Massey for a residency in small animal internal medicine, and attained membership in the Australasian College of Veterinary Scientists by examination. He graduated with a Masters in Veterinary Science in 2000, entitled "The nutritional management of food hypersensitivity in dogs and cats: an assessment of a protein hydrolysate".

In 2004, Nick attained a PhD in nutrition and immunology from the University of California, Davis, whilst concurrently completing a residency in small animal clinical nutrition. Nick became a diplomate in the American College of Veterinary Nutrition by examination in 2004. In late 2005, he returned to Massey University as senior lecturer in small animal medicine and nutrition. He has authored more than 30 peer-reviewed publications, is on the editorial board for the Veterinary Quarterly and Veterinary Education International, and has authored chapters in several international veterinary textbooks.
