Laila Proença, DVM, PhD, MV, MSc, DACZM: GI syndrome is not a name that everybody's familiar with because people refer to GI stasis as the syndrome, but GI stasis is just one part of the syndrome that may or may not happen, which is hypomotility...Things are not moving, but we don't have any dilatation; we don't have any gas; we don't have any obstructions...We call it syndrome because it's multifactorial. It's not just about diet. It's not just about using our current medications. It's not just about stress. It is way deeper than that.
