My Senior Dog Has Diarrhea
Diarrhea is often common in dogs, but it shouldn’t last long and it shouldn’t be ignored. Even if your dog hasn’t had diarrhea for long, you should still contact your vet and let him know. Your vet may have some suggestions for handling the stomach upset and helping your dog feel better. You should definitely alert your vet if your dog is a senior and has diarrhea. Diarrhea may be a sign of something else going on with your senior canine’s health. Diarrhea, even if it’s just a stomach upset, can also cause dehydration fairly quickly. It’s important to get the diarrhea under control and discover the cause so your pup can feel better. Try and track your dog’s eating habits, activities, etc. to determine what may have caused the diarrhea. Report to your Westminster, MD veterinary clinic and schedule a checkup for your pup.
