Helpful Tips: Diarrhea Care Dog Kit 

Keeping Your Pet Healthy Just Got Easier. Enjoy these vet approved tips below to accompany your Diarrhea Care Dog Kit.

HELPFUL TIPS

Rest -  Give you pet a cool quiet place to recover. Ideally on an easy to clean floor close to a door.

Fasting-  No food, treats or table food for the first 12 hours. Then begin a bland diet.


Vet Approved Bland Diet Recipe:

  • Mix 1-part boiled starch (white rice, pasta, sweet potato) with 1 part boiled lean protein (ground beef, chicken, turkey, egg) 

     Day 1:   Withhold treats and kibble. Feed 2 small meals of Bland Diet. 

     Day 2:   Withhold treats and kibble. Feed 2 regular sized meals of Bland Diet. 

     Day 3:   Feed 2 regular sized meals 1/2 kibble/ 1/2 Bland Diet.

     Day 4:   Seek veterinary care if stools are not formed.   

      Hold off on treats, chews, and table food until stool is firm enough to pick up.

Hydration-  It is important for your dog to stay hydrated. Aim for 1/8 cup water per hour for small dogs or 1/4 cup per hour for larger dogs.  Add ice cubes to encourage drinking.

TIP: Worms are often the reason for diarrhea. Use a MySimplePetLab Routine Stool Dog Test from home to determine if harmful parasites are the cause; then AutoShare test results with your vet.

Consult your vet if:

  • Stool is black or tarry
  • Your dog is not eating, drinking, active, and alert
  • Stool consistency is not improving daily while using Care Kit
