Dog Diarrhea: How To Quickly Stop It At Home

You've seen this many times; soft and liquid dirt found in the pile of carpet under the kitchen table. In this article I will go over the common causes of dog diarrhea, and how it is diagnosed based on clinical signs. Finally, you will find the most common and most effective home remedies to help prevent your dog's diarrhea quickly.

Anything that interferes with the digestive tract and causes unabsorbed water produces diarrhea. Some common causes include food insecurity (compost eating), parasites (Giardia or Roundworms), food allergies, infectious causes (Salmonella), inflammatory changes (Inflammatory bowel disease; similar to Crohn's disease in humans), and pancreatic abnormalities in German Shepherds).

Dog diarrhea is categorized as small bowel diarrhea (it comes from the small intestine), or small bowel diarrhea (it comes from the colon). The small intestine is usually large, not very frequent, sometimes with vomiting and weight loss. Causes of small intestinal diarrhea, from parasites to infectious agents. Symptoms of severe diarrhea include frequent, intense bowel movements, with mucus and occasional blood. Intestinal diarrhea is classified as colitis, due to food insecurity.

Severe diarrhea that causes dehydration is a medical emergency and should be dealt with by your veterinarian. If you have an imperfect dog, diarrhea may be contagious; the dog must be examined by a veterinarian. If your pet is on the alert, active and drinking, then try some home remedies.

Stop putting food into your pet for 24 hours (Day 1). This allows the intestine to relax and regenerate. Always have access to plenty of fresh water. After 24 hours, enter the bland food for the next 24 hours (Day 2). Clean white rice rice for dogs, eating a cup of rice is just like their normal diet. After a day mix a bland diet of 1/2 regular diet and 1/2 bland diet (Day 3). By the end of Day 3, they should return to their normal diet.

Probiotics help restore the natural bacteria in the gut, normalizing the intestinal immune system. The most effective supplement is Lactobacillus acidophilus - give 1/4 capsule per 10 kg of weight twice daily. I advise probiotics for all cases of diarrhea, but buy them from reputable sources to keep probiotics active.

Pepto-Bismol is an old standby that can be effective for dogs. Dog dose is 1 ml / 10 lbs weight given three times daily for no more than 7 days. Imodium (Loperamide) may be used cautiously, avoiding giving it to Collie or Collie cross. The dose for dogs is 0.5 mg / 10 lbs three times a day (give your dog 40 lbs 2 mg tablets three times a day).

Kaopectate has newer versions that are safer for dogs. It contains attapulgite clay as an active ingredient that binds toxins, reducing fluid in the intestinal tract and subsequent diarrhea. Dosage for dogs: 0.5-1.0 ml per pound with mouth every 4-6 hours. Treatment should only take 1-2 days.

There are several herbs that I am looking for to help dog diarrhea. Smooth elm in dry form can help with chronic diarrhea, such as inflammatory bowel disease in dogs. Dosage of dry herbs is 20 mg / lb weight twice daily. Peppermint helps with intestinal gas and cramps; Give 25 mg / lb of weight twice daily from dried herbs or 1 drop / lb of weight twice a day from tincture.

A homeopathy in particular stands out as being useful in most cases of diarrhea in dogs. It is called Arsenicum Album, and is my preferred homeopathic remedy for dogs with 'Garbage Gut'. Dosage: 1 tab 30C per 20 kg every 2-4 hours.

You should now have a good understanding of the symptoms and symptoms of dog diarrhea. You should be able to distinguish between large and small bowel diarrhea, and now know when to look for urgent veterinary care, or try some of my recommended home remedies. Now that you have the option of home remedies for future use, your dog has diarrhea, and now you can stop your dog's diarrhea at home.
