BIOMED Online In addition to the four-year professional curriculum leading to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree, the college offers a variety of online (BIOMED) courses. Courses serve as electives for other degree programs, a component to the online health science and bachelor of general studies degrees, as partial requirements in the MU Pre-veterinary Medicine Scholars Program, and to earn either a thesis or non-thesis master’s degree. BIOMED courses are also recommended electives in meeting the requirements to apply for a DVM program.
The potential efficacy of probiotic AAD prevention is dependent on the probiotic strain(s) used and on the dosage.   The Cochrane review (2015) recommends for children Lactobacillus rhamnosus or Saccharomyces boulardii at 5 to 40 billion colony forming units/day, given the modest number need to treat and the likelihood that adverse events are very rare.  The same review states that probiotic use should be avoided in pediatric populations at risk for adverse events, for example severely debilitated or immuno-compromised children.
