Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) is an idiopathic and chronic gastrointestinal failure of cats, dogs and some farm animals such as horses. Since the long and difficult classical therapy of the disease has various side effects, new therapeutic methods are needed. However, a safe and standardized treatment protocol has not been developed, yet. Therefore, IBD treatment is still a big dilemma for both human and veterinary medicine. In this review, IBD and new therapeutic alternatives in dogs were evaluated.
