Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Loosely translated, the term gastroenteritis means an upset or inflamed stomach and intestines. Vomiting usually indicates irritation in the stomach and upper small intestine, while diarrhea can mean irritation anywhere along the intestinal tract. Foreign material such as bones, sticks, leaves, grass, toys or garbage contents may be seen in vomited material when dogs and cats eat indiscriminately. Diarrhea that is watery or covered with mucus typically means a problem in the colon, which is the organ responsible for absorbing excess moisture from the stool.


Intestinal obstruction can be associated with intense pain, vomiting, and straining to defecate but passing only small amounts of runny stool, often with blood.
There are many possible causes for these conditions, including viruses and parasites, something very simple like having eaten something bad, or something more complicated like cancer or organ problems (such as kidney failure). As in people, gastroenteritis in pets can be caused by a multitude of underlying problems ranging from minor to serious and life threatening.
Medications are sometimes prescribed to calm the gastrointestinal tract and decrease the urge to vomit.


Your vet will also need to know whether your pet is drinking normal amounts of water, has a normal appetite, and is otherwise acting okay.
If the signs resolve, your pet can then be started on small amounts of bland, highly digestible food, such as boiled chicken and rice, or a prescription intestinal diet.
