“She Seems Fine, But…

Your dog but woke you up at 5am needing to go outside now. Or maybe she had a diarrhea accident in the house, which is not a normal occurrence (not housetraining, no concurrent illness). What should you do?

Words of Caution

As always, a call to check in with your vet is your best bet. Diarrhea may be a sign of serious problems such as pancreatitis, HGE, or poisonings. Diarrhea may make some conditions, such as diabetes, rapidly worse.

If your dog is a puppy or a senior, has any other health issues, or bloody diarrhea is noted (any age or condition), please skip home care options and call your veterinarian immediately. It is important to note that if the diarrhea persists for more than two days, however fine your dog seems, it is important to seek veterinary care to avoid dehydration and other health issues.
