Going to the pharmacy to fix your pet’s problem?
If your pet’s diarrhea is so bad you are reaching for the Imodium (loperamide) STOP!
Speak to your veterinarian.
Imodium affects the muscles in the digestive tract and should not be used long term. Start with dietary changes then seek more natural treatments.
Obviously, if your pet has to go on a long car journey, it makes sense, but loperamide is not healthy long-term.
Probiotics work with the digestive tract safely and healthily to support their gut (intestines). Try looking for a high-count pet probiotic that ensures enough bacteria make it all the way through the GI Tract.
Does your new fur-baby have diarrhea?
Who knows where your dog was prior to becoming your baby!? Very often stress and a new environment can cause gut upset in dogs. If your dog’s diarrhea is so bad you are reaching for loperamide STOP! Speak to your veterinarian or a vet tech. There are more natural ways to work with your pet’s diarrhea, like diet modification (see above) and probiotics. Probiotics work with the digestive tract more slowly, but safely and help support the maintenance or health of the intestines. A high-count probiotic like Profauna 100 is a good option, with 100 billion bacteria, you can be sure there is enough bacteria to make it all the way through the GI Tract.
Profauna 100 not only helped with my new rescue’s poo (her stools), but also her fur and general health. When I got her, she was Giardia positive and had terrible poo issues. It takes about a month to really see a total difference and not just with the poop.
