DENVER/May 21, 2020 – Morris Animal Foundation, a nonprofit leader in advancing animal health, launches its monthly educational webinar series, “AnimalNEWS 101,” with a topic no one wants to talk about in polite company, but most pet owners have to deal with – the runs (or, more scientifically, diarrhea).

“What Number 2 Can Tell You” airs on Wednesday, May 27, at 11 a.m. MDT, and tackles one of the most common problems reported by pet owners to their veterinarians. Owners will learn the causes of diarrhea, when they should take their pet to see a veterinarian, and what they can do at home to make their pet feel better. Interested viewers can register for the webinar here. The webinar also will be available for viewing via sign-up after the recording date.

“AnimalNEWS 101” provides monthly animal health lessons for pet owners from a wide range of experts.

This month’s webinar is sponsored in part by AnimalBiome, dedicated to improving pet health through microbiome assessments for dogs and cats, and the development of diagnostics and therapeutics for chronic digestive disorders.

Morris Animal Foundation, headquartered in Denver, is one of the largest nonprofit animal health research organizations in the world, funding more than $155 million in studies across a broad range of species.
