Diarrhea in Dogs

When your dog is suffering from diarrhea it is a messy and frustrating situation.  If your dog is up to date on

vaccinations, still eating, drinking, bouncy and happy here are a few suggestions to try to mitigate the

situation.

Internal Parasites

Take a fresh fecal sample to our clinic where, in our laboratory, we can look for evidence of a parasitic infestation.  If we see parasites we can guide you as to which deworming medication to administer.

Dietary Indiscretion

When introducing a new food, take a week or two to gradually change from the old food to the new.  Taking time to transition will result in less digestive upset. If your dog has eaten something other than the usual diet, perhaps something found in the garbage, try withholding food for 24 hours and see if the diarrhea subsides.
