My dog or cat has diarrhea, What can I do?

Diarrhea and vomiting are nature’s way of removing toxins.

Step 1: Fast Your Dog

Many dogs will fast themselves when they have a tummy problem. If your dog does this, don’t try to get him to eat.

If your dog doesn’t fast himself, it’s a good idea to stop feeding him for 12 to 24 hours. It’ll let his gut rest and heal. If that seems like too long, you can safely start with 6 to 12 hours of no food or water with most dogs.

Don't fast dogs under 6 months old.

CAUTION: If your dog is very small or prone to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) … give him tiny licks of honey each hour. If he seems weak and trembly, you can give it more often, as needed.

Once your dog is not vomiting and diarrhea has stopped or slowed, offer small sips of water.

  • Start with just a few teaspoons in very small dogs every few hours.
  • For large dogs, increase the amount, giving ½ to 1 cup.

Be sure to use filtered or spring water … never unfiltered tap water.

After 6 hours of water only, you can start some broth or small amounts of bland food (see Step 2).Bone broth is a nutritious bland option. It provides a hearty mix of nutrients, but it’s easy on your dog’s stomach.

You can then gradually increase his food over the next 4 to 5 days.

When you reintroduce food to your dog, start with a bland diet. It’ll be easier on his digestive system. And it can help prevent more diarrhea.

And the same goes for your dog. Once he starts eating again, bland is best to help prevent further tummy upset. And soup is a great way to start…

Your conventional vet may recommend feeding white rice and boiled chicken or ground beef. But starting with soup is a gentler way to smooth your dog’s transition back to his regular diet … without the added starch.
