Dietary-responsive and antibiotic-responsive diarrheas are very common, but there are some nuances that can make diagnosis difficult. Some dogs only respond to dietary therapy; some dogs only respond to antibiotic therapy, some dogs respond to either dietary or antibiotic therapy; and some dogs only respond to simultaneous dietary and antibiotic therapy. Biopsy is seldom needed for dogs with chronic enteropathies, and steroids are needed even less often.
