Gastroenteritis in Dogs

Gastroenteritis refers to inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, meaning the stomach and the intestines. It can be caused by infection with bacteria, viruses, parasites, medications, or even new foods. Most dogs with gastroenteritis will have intermittent episodes of vomiting and diarrhoea.

 

Head Vet, Sean McCormack, of dog food company tails.com explains ‘symptoms may include foamy yellowish bile vomit, especially after the stomach has been emptied. Some owners may see dry heaving or gagging after their dog eats or drinks.’

 

‘If you think your pet may have Gastroenteritis then seek veterinary help right away, your pooch may need immediate treatment.’
