Dog Diarrhea

Dog diarrhea is just as messy for you as it is uncomfortable for your pet. If diarrhea lasts more than two days or so, or if the diarrhea becomes severe it may be best to visit your veterinarian. If your dog is young, diarrhea may be a sign of a virus or parasites. A stool sample can be examined to check for coccidia, or other infections. If puppies less than three weeks old are suffering from diarrhea it could be a case of worms. These can be treated with either medications from a veterinarian or even holistic remedies.

Causes of Diarrhea in Dogs

The majority of diarrhea in dogs is caused when food moves too quickly through the digestive tract. With the quick transport of food through the bowel, food arrives at the rectum in a loose, unformed state. Because dogs are scavengers, they may intake indigestible substances like dead animals, decaying food, and other unfamiliar materials. These substances irritate the bowels and can be the cause of diarrhea and vomiting.

Symptoms of Diarrhea in Dogs

You can tell from the color and consistency of the diarrhea what may be happening in the dog’s body. If the diarrhea is yellow or green, or a watery consistency it is probably caused by a quick transport through the body. Black or red diarrhea is likely caused by GI bleeding. If the diarrhea is light colored it is probably caused by a need of bile and is liver related. If your dog’s diarrhea becomes severe or lasts more than 2 days, seek medical attention from a veterinarian.
