Online Vets Can Help Determine the Cause of Your Dog’s Diarrhea

There are many reasons that dogs develop diarrhea. Getting into the trash or eating material that doesn’t belong in the GI tract will result in loose stools. Other causes include viral or bacterial infections, parasites, food allergies, and even stress.

Recurring diarrhea can be a sign of something more serious like inflammatory bowel disease, liver or kidney disease, or cancer. It is important that you consult with a veterinarian whenever your pet is not feeling well.

Trust an Online Vet to Give the Best Advice For Your Dog

Home treatments like feeding bland food such as chicken and rice can be helpful, but many times this will not be enough to get your dog back to having normal feces.

Which medication is chosen depends upon the severity of the symptoms and the cause of the diarrhea.

NOTE: Many states do not allow online prescriptions.
