The article presents a study on the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases in dogs which depends largely on histologic examination of biopsy samples. The study aims to assess the diagnostic value of biopsy samples taken from duodenum and ileum in dogs with diffuse gatrointestinal disease. It concludes that the type and severity of inflammation may vary depending on the anatomic site sampled in dogs with diffuse bowel diarrhea.
