Physiology of Dog Chronic Diarrhea

See a Veterinarian ASAP

Like humans, there are a variety of physiological factors that can lead to the development of chronic diarrhea in dogs. Instead of absorbing much-needed nutrients right away, this condition can cause food to pass through a dog's digestive system so rapidly that he/she doesn't see benefit from it. With food being paramount to the survival of all living things, its clear that chronic diarrhea is a real problem that needs to be addressed if it is occuring. On top of a dog's bodies inability to absorb nutrients, chronic dog diarrhea can also lead to the rapid flushing of important electrolytes such as potassium, calcium, and sodium.

Because this condition, if left untreated, can impact your dog's survival,  it is important for you to see your dog's veterinarian as soon as possible. With medical expertise, conditioned by years of schooling and experience, you can rest assured that your veterinarian with diagnose what it is that is exactly causing the problem and they will prescribe medications to help treat it. Everyday spent without addressing your dog's chronic diarrhea can greatly impact all facets of your dog's health and well-being.
