When should I take my dog to the vet for diarrhea and vomiting?
If you see other symptoms, such as blood in the stool or vomit, or any other alarming symptoms, such as your dog vomiting consistently over a short time or having abdominal pain, contact your veterinarian immediately. After 24 hours, you may begin to reintroduce very bland food into his diet, as well as water.
Should I be concerned if my dog has had diarrhea for 3 days?
Diarrhea in dogs can occur suddenly and last as long as a day or two up to a few weeks or months. If your dog’s diarrhea persists for more than a day, dehydration can be a concern. Diarrhea that lasts longer can be an indication that your dog has an underlying health issue.
What do I do if my dog has diarrhea and vomiting?
It’s a good idea to offer your pet a bland diet for a couple of days following an episode of vomiting and/or diarrhoea. It is best to feed smaller sized meals more regularly until your pet is back to normal. You can then gradually reintroduce their usual diet. In most cases, your pet should recover without a problem.
