They say you are what you eat – and that applies to your dog too.
Digestion is a key element of their overall health, and an upset stomach is often the first sign that something’s not right.
“Digestive problems are among the most common reasons for a dog to be presented at a veterinary clinic,” says veterinarian Sarah Howard. “Studies conducted overseas have shown that over 50 per cent of veterinary presentations are due to a digestive issue.”
According to Sarah, common causes of digestive upsets include: adverse reactions to certain foods; gut infections with bacteria, parasites or viruses; inflammatory bowel disorders or negative reactions to certain medications (particularly antibiotics and anti-inflammatories).
