Investigating a Noninvasive, At-Home Diagnostic Technique for Gastrointestinal Disorders

Gastrointestinal disorders are common in dogs and are often associated with a change in the rate food moves through the stomach and intestines. This study uses a noninvasive, wireless sensor capsule to determine the gastrointestinal transit in dogs. The information will help veterinarians to better diagnose gastrointestinal diseases, including bloat, gastritis and inflammatory bowel disease, while dogs are in their home environment.
