Dog Diarrhea

One of the most useful and common recommendations for diarrhea in dogs is the use of probiotics. These contain beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus, acidophilus, and Bifidobacterium bifidum. Many dogs become deficient of these from taking different medications and antibiotics. These beneficial bacteria perform valuable functions such as the production of enzymes and protection from cancerous substances.

When a dog is lacking in these beneficial microorganisms they can have vomiting, diarrhea, allergies, immune imbalances and liver trouble. Most diarrhea in dogs resolves in twenty-four hours. If the diarrhea persists it is important you get to a veterinarian. There are a number of different homeopathic remedies available to help these symptoms in dogs with diarrhea.

A wonderful herb that soothes and heals the gut is slippery elm. This actually nourishes the inflamed digestive tract. Another homeopathic remedy is Nux vomica which counteracts nausea and chemical upset in the stomach. This is great to have on hand for on and off again diarrhea or constipation in dogs. It restores the balance and regularity to the gut.

This contains pectin which is a natural fibrous substance and actually tightens up the bowels. Another binder that some use for tightening up the stools is rice.
