Veterinary Articles

I’ll use this page is to share articles written by and for veterinarians on topics related to feeding tubes and aftercare. Wherever applicable, I will post a warning note about any graphic images that might be included.

  • The following article from the Veterinary Information Network explains the types of feeding tubes and care and provides a sample feeding chart: Feeding Tubes for Dogs and Cats.
  • The following article, Esophagostomy Feeding Tubes, written for veterinarians (warning: graphic descriptive pictures) outlines the surgical process of inserting an esophageal feeding tube and aftercare; note that Kitty Kollar is the recommended wrap.
