Gastrointestinal; Diarrhea, Vomiting, Worms, Parvo, and Weight Loss

Because our lives are so intertwined with the habits of our pets, we tend to know right away if they’re having gastrointestinal problems. Vomiting and diarrhea are pretty obvious signs that something isn’t quite right with your pet. Allergies, illness, cancer, infections, drugs, parasites, plants, and poisons can all cause vomiting. Diarrhea is one of the most common illnesses of dogs and cats, and is especially common in puppies and kittens. Depending on the cause of diarrhea, you may need to change diet or administer medication, or both.

  • Diarrhea is one of the most common pet problems.
  • Pets can vomit immediately after eating, or hours after eating. They tend to eject poisons quickly, but to wait several hours before vomiting if the problem is an obstruction.
  • Rapid weight loss is often a sign of illness.
  • Parvo is a viral infection. It damages the intestines and causes severe diarrhea and dehydration.
