Diarrhea In Dogs And The Best Ways To Get Your Dogs Health Back To Normal

Mar 6, 2008
Dog diarrhea can be a very troubling time for your dog and the many reasons for these conditions can be overwhelming and complicated for anyone owning a dog suffering from this health scare. Although most of the causes of dog diarrhea and vomiting are almost always harmless and can be cured easily helping you dog get back to full health within 2-3 days, it is always a good idea to visit you vet to make sure it is nothing more serious than first thought.

Commonly the reason for this illness is due to food intolerance or poisoning, or as we would say an 'upset stomach'. This is basically when your dog eats something that is unfamiliar to the dog's normal tastes and causes the dog's body to reject the food in the form of vomiting or diarrhea, leaving you canine friend to feel extremely ill and not wanting to eat in most cases. In this case it is not because the food is poisoning the dog, but rather that the dog's stomach is not used to that type of flavour and food.

The other common cause is food poisoning which is caused by eating something that is harmful or can be harmful for the dog, often this is due to your dog eating or liking something up along a walk, or tasting substances that have a sweet taste and smell such as some household cleaners, or spilt screen wash or de-icer accidentally spilt on yours or someone else's drive.

The symptoms of diarrhea and vomiting are often a big clue to your vet where the cause is situated in the digestive system of the dog. If the dog only vomits then it s probable that the problem is in the stomach and not moved any further down yet, if the symptoms are both vomiting and diarrhea then it is probable that the causes is beginning to move further down the system or is in both the upper and lower sections of the digestive system, and finally if only diarrhea is seen then it will normally be in the lower digestive system or intestines.

As with all conditions affecting your dog you should always keep a close eye on your dog and take them to the vet if you suspect anything suspicious. From here you vet will normally stop the food your dog is eating for twenty four hours to allow the system to flush out, then ease them back onto solid food in gradual stages increasing the amount of flavour given gradually.
