What can be causing canine recurrent diarrhea and vomiting?


Answer by  Jennifer76 (128)

Recurrent diarrhea and vomiting can be caused by abrupt diet change, dietary indiscretion, or gastrointestinal illnesses. Sometimes intestinal parasites such as hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms can cause diarrhea and vomiting. Diarrhea and vomiting can be due to viral illnesses such as parvovirus. Parvovirus can be fatal if not treated aggressively. An additional cause can be attributed to pancreatitis or gastroenteritis.

The most likely suspect is environmental or in the food. Did you recently and suddenly change dog foods? You are supposed to ease your dog into that. Has he been sniffing and eating around a new place? There may be something affecting him. If the dog has been under a lot of stress they can also get these symptoms.


Answer by  Stripedfire (32)

This could be caused by food poisoning, a parasite, and stress. If your dog ate something bad for it, this can upset its stomach and cause such a reaction. Parasites like Giardia can cause a dog to have diarrhea. Stress can also play a role in the health of a canine.

You almost certainly should take the dog to a veterinarian if this is an ongoing issue. He might have eaten something he should not have, such as a dead (and possibly rotting) animal, or even a poison such as antifreeze. In any case, if he is not keeping water down, he could get dehydrated very quickly.

It could be caused by the dog's diet. Try a different, high-quality food, first mixed with current food and gradually increasing in amount. If the situation does not improve, see a veterinarian.

The dog could have eaten a plant that aggravated its stomach, it could have a stomach virus, or it could have gotten into the trash and can't pass it.

Try changing your dog's food. Sometimes a dog food that is to rich or not healthy for your dog can cause this. Your dog also may have intestinal parasites that can cause your dog to become very sick. You should also check with your vet because this can cause dehydration.

Most likely the dog is eating non dog food. This can easily be from table feedings while you are eating or the dog is eating from the garbage.


Answer by  artgirl (367)

Any number of things may be going on here, first and foremost get your dog to a vet to make sure it's not something really serious.


Answer by  Nekochan (16)

Probably the food. I have pets too and they dislike when I change the brand. Sometimes is money or external factors. One of my dogs doesn't even eat! Make sure you buy quality food, I recommend you premium. Also you have to go to the vet as soon as you can, maybe is more complicated than that.

This is a very broad topic, however, mostly vomiting is caused by the dogs diet or eating habits. Is the animal chewing on grass, bugs? This is directly tied into the diarrhea. If the dog has just changed food or started eating table food, this will cause diarrhea and vomiting. If it lasts more than a few days, see vet.
