Home Treatment for Dog Diarrhea
Does your dog have diarrhea? It is not unusual for your pet to experience loose bowel from time to time, so don’t panic.
Your pet is no different from you and me. There are times when our digestive systems are messed up and there can be many reasons why this happens. As for your dog, are you giving him table scraps? This is the number one cause of digestive problems in animals. We think we are treating our pet by giving him the same food we eat, but it is no treat if he is going to suffer the after-effects of loose bowel. He does not know what he should or should not eat. That is our job as responsible pet owners.
Natural treatments are healthier for your dog and should always be the first things you try to get him back to normal.
* A bland diet is one of the best ways to treat the condition. Cottage cheese or unflavored yogurt can do a lot for stabilizing the good bacteria in the intestines and relieving the diarrhea.
* Fasting is another effective way to get your dogs’ diarrhea under control. If you stop all foods for 24 hours, this should help to get his bowel movements back to normal.
* It is common for your dog to experience dehydration when suffering with diarrhea so be sure he has plenty of clean, fresh water. It would also be a good idea to put a little bit of some kind of sports drink in his water. This will help to restore the electrolytes in his body. Do not give the drink full strength.
If, after a couple of days, there is no success with the treatment it is suggested you make a trip to your veterinarian. You will want your vet to rule out any health condition that may be causing the problem.
