Diarrhoea in a rabbit is a serious problem that shouldn’t be ignored. As a rabbit owner, it’s important to check that your rabbit is passing normal, solid pellets every day.
Rabbits are naturally clean animals that spend a lot of time grooming. A dirty bottom often indicates a health problem. Check your rabbits' bottoms regularly.
Diarrhoea is a very common problem in dogs with many possible causes. If your dog has diarrhoea (without blood or mucus) but seems well in themselves, you may want to try settling their stomach at home.
A poo sample may provide your vet with the information they need to diagnose and treat your dog. For guidance on how to collect a stool sample from your dog, read our step-by-step guide or watch our video.
Giardia is a very small parasite that attacks the lining of the guts and causes diarrhoea.
