Haemorrhagic gastroenteritis (HGE) is a condition that causes severe illness, vomiting and bloody diarrhoea. Specialists suspect it’s caused by a nasty bacteria that attacks the lining of the guts.
Symptoms of HGE usually last 2-4 days. Most dogs make a good recovery if they get veterinary treatment quickly.
If your dog is showing any signs of HGE you should contact your vet immediately.
