Causes And Effects of Diarrhea in Your Dog

Most dog owners are familiar with diarrhea in their dogs. According to veterinarians, diarrhea is the most common medical ailment in cats and dogs. But only a few dog owners really know anything about diarrhea, its causes, and effects. There are a number of reasons why your dog would have diarrhea, therefore it is very important that you pay close attention to your dog when he has an upset stomach. There are a few things listed below that you should look out for and take note of

  • When did the diarrhea start
  • Does your dog’s pooh have any mucus
  • Does your dog’s pooh have any blood
  • How long is diarrhea lasting or how long did it last
  • your dog eat anything different than the usual food that would make him sick
  • Do you see any strange food or objects in your dogs pooh that you can identify

Changing your dog’s diet could be the main reason why your dog would have diarrhea. Therefore, if your dog is used to eating commercial brand dog food and suddenly you give him table scraps, it is very likely that he will have diarrhea. Likewise, if you change his drinking water, especially when he is traveling, it is more than likely that he will suffer temporary diarrhea.

Puppies’ intestinal tracts are very sensitive and any sudden change in their diet can affect them. When you purchase a puppy from a breeder, he should tell you what food he feeds him and suggest that you feed him the same food. But when you purchase a puppy from a friend or through an ad in the papers, make sure that you ask what food he eats. The chances are that he is not getting the proper nourishment so you should consult with your veterinarian as to what diet is best for your dog.

If you know that your puppy is used to a raw meat diet but you want to change it to commercial dog food, make sure that the transition is a gradual one. You can start by mixing a little of the commercial food into the raw meat. Increase the amount of commercial dog food every day until you have completely eliminated the raw meat. The gradual change from one diet to the next should prevent your dog from having diarrhea.

Overfeeding and underfeeding your dog could also cause diarrhea. For instance, a dog that is very hungry usually overeats when fed and is likely to get sick. Likewise, a dog that is fed less than one time a day will also overeat when fed. Evidence shows that when dogs are fed twice a day with only half the normal amount of food, the likelihood of them having diarrhea is less than if they are fed the full amount at one feeding. Many breeders and veterinarians recommend self-feeding for dogs. This means that you put a dish full of dry commercial food for your dog and he eats anytime he wants. Diarrhea is very rare with this type of feeding.

Drinking excessive amounts of water can also cause diarrhea in dogs. During the months of summer, diarrhea becomes more common because it’s a time when dogs drink a lot more water. However, dogs that drink too much water may be suffering from something more serious than diarrhea. If you notice this, take your dog right away to the veterinarian.

Another serious cause of diarrhea is spoiled food during summer because of excessive heat. Be very careful not to give your dog moist food that has become moldy. Also, keep him away from garbage cans as they may carry harmful things like sawdust or soap which can cause serious digestive problems.

If your dog gets diarrhea from garbage cans, it may be a symptom of something worse. Your dog can have intestinal inflammation or enteritis from eating rotten meat. Diarrhea is also associated with distemper, leptospirosis, and a variety of worms like hookworm and whipworm. During summer do not increase the amount of food you give your dog but instead feed him less.

Sometimes, diarrhea is caused by specific elements in your dog’s diet. For instance, egg whites can cause your dog to have diarrhea if you give him raw. The same can be said about lactose if you give your dog too much milk or milk products.

Older dogs can have diarrhea due to malfunction of the heart, kidneys, liver, abdominal tumors, and many other conditions. Dogs can also have diarrhea from intestinal irritants like salts and acids or by ingesting foreign matter such as toy balls, lint, or splinters.

Usually, when a dog has diarrhea, it would pass within a day or two. During this period do not give your dog any milk or broth. Instead, mix some cooked rice or macaroni with his regular food. If diarrhea persists, or if you see blood in the stool or vomit, take your dog to the veterinarian immediately.
