Probiotics: Probiotics are a vital supplement for GI protection and wellbeing. Having a predominant population of good bacteria in our guts alleviates GI discomfort, reduces inflammation, and improves overall immunity. In general it is best to purchase a veterinary specific probiotic product to ensure you are supplementing with the most effective bacterial strains but in a pinch you can look for human grade sources of probiotics (such as yogurt and kefir). The probiotic product we currently carry is called Fortiflora. It comes as a cat and dog-specific flavored powdered.

In the winters of 2004, 2005, and 2006, outbreaks of mild to moderately severe bloody diarrhea in dogs were reported to the Los Angeles County (California) Veterinary Public Health office. Because so many cases occurred near each other within a short time, researchers suspected that a contagious infection or food contamination caused the illness. However, extensive diagnostic tests conducted during each outbreak failed to reveal a connection. For use as an aid in treating non-infectious diarrhea in dogs, cats, cattle, and horses. Kaolin-pectin in a flavored base.

The influence of dietary fiber inclusion on the digestibility of other macronutrients and energy is more complex, and there are many factors that contribute to the influence of dietary fiber on macronutrient and energy digestibility coefficients. Firstly, ileal and fecal sample composition is, in part, a reflection of the nutrient composition, digestibility and fermentability of the fiber itself. For example, microcrystalline cellulose has high dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) concentrations and low digestibility and fermentability (i.e., it travels through the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) relatively unchanged). Thus, depending on the dietary inclusion level, decreased apparent total tract DM and OM digestibilities are expected. In cats, compared with those fed a 0% supplemental fiber control (TDF: 1.7%), inclusion of 7.5% as-is cellulose (TDF: 11.2%) decreased (p vs. 81%) and OM (91% vs. 84%). Similar digestibility coefficients and different DM and OM digestibilities among treatments have been reported for dogs fed diets containing 2.5% cellulose (TDF: 5.0%) and 7.5% cellulose (TDF: 9.7%) when compared to those fed 0% supplemental fiber control diets (TDF: 2.5%) [,].Ever heard of Kaopectate? I'm sure you have, because it's been on store shelves for decades alongside the Pepto-Bismol. For years, Kaopectate was an excellent and safe product to use to help control mild or chronic cases of diarrhea in both dogs and cats. Not anymore. Not since they changed the formula. In the day, the active ingredients in Kaopectate were kaolin and pectin (hence the name!). But now, Kaopectate contains the same active ingredients as Pepto-Bismol, which includes aspirin. And as you know, aspirin can be toxic to cats and to dogs with underlying kidney or liver disease. The good news is that pure kaolin and pectin mixtures are still available out there and can be purchased at feed stores or at all-natural grocery stores. Just be sure to check the label before you buy (the only two ingredients should be kaolin and pectin). Kaolin and pectin mixtures provide local protection along the intestinal tract lining and adsorb bacteria and toxins. Pectin also helps to decrease the pH in the intestinal lumen, which helps in the healing process. Both ingredients are safe to administer to all pets over 16 weeks of age. For those under that age, check with your veterinarian first before dosing. Side effects are rare, but can include constipation. The dose to use for mild cases of diarrhea is 1ml of mixture per pound of body weight given every 8 hours. So a 10 pound cat would receive 10 ml (2 teaspoons) of mixture. Now if the diarrhea is not brought under control within three days, or if at any time your pet stops eating, starts to vomit, or becomes lethargic, its time to see your veterinarian.Dosage of PectaSol-C Modified Citrus Pectin Powder For Dogs/Cats
Average, mid-sized dogs may take 1 scoop daily. Cats should take only ½ scoop or less, as they are smaller. This can be put in their water dish.The most beneficial initial step is to put your dog on a liquid fast. Withhold all solid food and only allow a liquid diet consisting of juices (i.e. apple juice is very healing in diarrhea), broths, and filtered water. If you suspect your dog’s diarrhea is due to an infection, you can add colloidal silver to his drinking water. The reason for not feeding further is that a dog’s digestive system has a gastrocolic reflex. This means that the colon will empty as the stomach fills. Thus, to stop the colon from emptying and break this cycle of diarrhea, its best to stop ingesting food (or only as little as possible). In most cases, dogs instinctively will refuse food when they are unwell. By fasting, the irritated digestive system is given a chance to rest and heal.
