How to cure diarrhea in dogs…
  • Keep your dog hydrated with water, you can get some products from most good pet stores that have added electrolytes to help rehydrate your pooch faster.
  • If you can’t find any products with the added electrolytes, purchase some glucose and add 1 teaspoon with 2 teaspoons of salt to a litre of water and mix this with your dog’s water and give it 2-3 times a day.
  • Dog vomiting and diarrhea is often your dog’s way of extracting any nasty bacteria in his gut – so try not feeding your dog for 24 hours.

  1. Heavy panting.
  2. Shaking or having fits.
  3. Disorientation.
  4. Has a temperature – feel his ears to see if they are hot.
  5. Lethargy.
  • Ok after your dog has had 24 hours off food and assuming your vet has agreed, make up a simple homemade dog food recipe. Boiled rice and chicken is always a good choice as it is bland and easy to digest.
  • Keep hydrating your dog with water.
  • Now give your dog some cottage cheese and some plain yogurt as this adds some healthy bacteria to your dog’s bowels.
  • Check to see if your dog or puppy is hydrated – you can do this by gently pulling the skin on his back into a tent and if it goes back really quickly he is hydrated and if it takes ages or even stays where you left it – he needs urgent treatment as he may need water intravenously.
  • Consistently speak to your vet through the process and ask your vet if you can give your dog or puppy any pepto bismol or Imodium  for dogs.
