Digestive and Urinary Problems in Dogs
Incontinence is bothering for dog and owner, cause
What are the causes of the diarrhea? Is it serious? Diarrhea is not a disease in itself, but a symptom associated to many diseases, some of them infectious. Bacteria diseases, like salmonella, and the aforementioned virus, can all cause diarrhea. Parasites as the Coccidios, unicellular organisms described as protozoa, may also be implicated. Among the noninfectious causes is included bad absorption of certain that may be caused, for example, by a pancreatic insufficiency.Sometimes, a veterinarian checkup is needed, specially when puppies are affected, cause they can quickly dehydrate. In case of an older dog, and seemingly healthy, the problem can be solved with a fasting of 24 hours, and later giving him some chicken and rice. Any indication of fresh blood in your dog's poop, suggest a digestive problem in the terminal part of this region. Inflammation of the thick intestine, known as colitis, is a typical cause of these problems. Feces are, apparently, gelatinous, due to their high content of mucous. If the source of blood loss is the thin intestine, there will not be fresh blood in feces, cause the blood will be partially digested, while flowing through the intestine, getting a grayish brown red shape.
