This was great to see but what really made a difference was the fact that gas significantly reduced. Trips in the car are much more fun again. -YVONNE|
Frequently Asked Questions:
What causes a gastrointestinal upset in dogs?
If you are a dog owner, chances are you've experienced your dog have an upset tummy, resulting in vomiting, diarrhoea or both. There are a number of possible causes for a gastrointestinal upset in dogs:
- Diet: changing your dog's food suddenly is a common cause of vomiting and diarrhoea in dogs. This is because the gut has not had time to acclimate to the different composition of food. Your dog may also scavenge outside their regular diet. If your dog eats something undesirable in the yard or on a walk, this can also cause a gastrointestinal upset.
- Gastrointestinal infections: this can include viruses such as parvovirus, bacteria, parasites and fungal infections. Infections of the gastrointestinal tract can produce mild to severe and life-threatening disease.
- Foreign bodies: blockages or partial blockages of the gastrointestinal tract can cause symptoms such as vomiting, lethargy, inappetence and in some cases, diarrhoea.
- Toxins/poisons: ingestion of a toxic, poisonous or irritant substance can cause gastrointestinal signs in dogs. It can also lead to other organ damage and sometimes life-threatening illness, depending on the substance.
- Extra-gastrointestinal causes: disease in the liver, kidneys or pancreas can also have an effect on the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in vomiting and diarrhoea in some instances.
- Endocrine disease: some diseases such as diabetes, Cushing's disease (hyperadrenocorticism) and Addison's disease (hypoadrenocorticism) can cause gastrointestinal signs in dogs.
If your dog ever displays symptoms of being unwell, such as vomiting, diarrhoea, being off their food or lethargic, it is important you do not delay seeking veterinary assistance.
