If you own a dog, you must be well versed with all of the common diseases that they could have. One of these is diarrhoea, which can be a recurrent issue for puppies. Although mild cases of diarrhea can be treated at home easily, the more severe causes of diarrhea could be fatal for your dog. Hence, it is necessary to notice the symptoms and immediately consult a veterinarian. In many cases, diarrhea can point to conditions that are life-threatening for puppies.
Although milder cases of diarrhea can be easily treated at home, it's always better to consult a vet. If your puppy is still feeling well but has diarrhea, home remedies or over-the-counter pet shop remedies may potentially work. Moreover, you must ensure that water is always available for your pup. Dehydration is a common occurrence in puppies. If your puppy is reluctant to drink, offer it ice cubes to lick so that some amount of hydration is there.
Probiotics can sometimes help. Additionally, changing their diet into something bland is also advised widely by veterinarians. A bland diet is easier for a unhappy digestive tract to digest. In the case that your puppy is feeling lethargic or it’s vomiting, consult the vet immediately.
