Develop Your Gut Instinct for Pets’ Digestive Disorders

Gurgling guts and tummies in turmoil are never good news for pets. For pet parents who have to clean up the unfortunate consequences of their pet’s carpet emergencies, digestive upsets are one of the rare downsides to owning a pet.

Digestive disorders can affect any part of the digestive system, from the stomach, small intestine and through to the large intestine. As well as the commonly known signs such as diarrhoea - ranging from liquid to cowpat like - and vomiting, GI disease in the dog can be accompanied by a loss of appetite, stomach rumblings or cramps, straining, inactivity, depression and weight loss.

Some pets may suffer from large bowel problems, which are more likely to cause frequent passing of faeces, possibly accompanied by jelly-like mucus or live blood. The signs can be intermittent or continuous. Remember that your pet may need to be seen by a vet, not just to deal with short-term stomach problems, but also those conditions that can rumble on over a longer time period and be just as serious.

Feeding a specially formulated Hill’s™ Prescription Diet™ pet food could be the answer if your pet has a digestive problem and your vet can recommend one to provide the best match to your pet’s condition.
