Dog diarrhoea. Causes and treatment

If your dog develops diarrhoea it is a sign of intestinal or digestive problems just as dog flatulence is. On this page we’ll take a general look at diarrhoea including causes and treatment.

Dog diarrhoea can be caused by many things. In a not dissimilar way to dog flatulence, your dog my develop diarrhoea from a diet of poor quality pet food or overeating particularly if fed just once a day. If you dog does get a spot of diarrhoea try feeding him two or three times a day in smaller quantities.

Stress may also be a contributing factor for example of the dog suffers from separation anxiety if left alone. He may begin to nibble on or eat anything he can get his teeth in I to around the house in an attempt to relive his stress at being alone. If he eats anything which doesn’t agree with him then diarrhoea may result.

Intestinal parasites (such as worms) won’t do you dog any favours and may also trigger diarrhoea and other unpleasant side effects. Viral infections such as parvovirus and bacterial infections such as campylobacter are quite common causes of dog diarrhoea.

Seek treatment from your vet as soon as possible as parvovirus in particular is a dangerous condition. Your dog will suffer much diarrhoea, be depressed and become dehydrated from fluid loss.

If you become concerned about your dog’s diarrhoea then seek professional help from your vet. If possible take a stool sample with you as this may assist the vet with diagnosis and treatment.
