The cause and several possible interventions that may reduce the frequency and intensity of stress/travel diarrhea will be discussed. The impact of health, physical conditioning, GI and nasal microbiota, and pharmaceuticals on olfaction in working dogs will be reviewed. Ongoing and future studies will be shared and there will be an opportunity for questions.
