If your dog has a skin allergy, diarrhoea or symptoms of IBD your vet might ask you to carry out a food trial at home in case their symptoms are triggered by something in their food.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria which can be used to ‘top up’ the natural bacteria in your dog’s gut. They can help your dog recover from stomach upsets or longer-term conditions like Colitis.
Some pets will struggle to digest a new food unless it’s introduced slowly into their normal diet – so, if your pet eats something they aren’t used to it may give them diarrhoea.
There are many conditions that cause diarrhoea in cats, ranging from minor to serious. Mild cases of diarrhoea usually pass within 24 hours.
A vaccination, like any other medication, can sometimes cause side effects - fortunately, they are often mild and pass within a few days.
