What To Do If Your Pet Has A Tummy Upset

Diarrhoea is one of the most common complaints we see in dogs brought into the Notting Hill and Barons Court Veterinary Surgeries. Emma shares her tips on what causes vomiting and tummy trouble on the Petwell blog.

Dogs

If your dog is less than six months old or older than eight years old then call us for advice on the day the diarrhoea starts. If your pet’s upset stomach isn’t too bad we usually suggest you:

  • Don’t feed him for 12 hours
  • Then feed him a small portion of skinless chicken and boiled rice

If your dog gradually improves you can then return to gradually reintroducing his normal diet over a period of two or three days. If he doesn’t improve give us a call to make an appointment and bring a sample of the diarrhoea with you.

Cats

If your cat is suffering from diarrhoea call us straight away as cats are less prone to dietary indiscretion through eating something they shouldn’t.
