Dr. Laci on Poop: Acute Colitis
I love the pic of the dog leaving a deposit…LOL Good info Dr. Laci!
Indicators that your dog is suffering from large bowel, not small bowel diarrhea:
- semi-formed to liquid feces
- fresh blood or mucous in stool
- increased frequency of defecation (six or more times daily)
- straining, an urgent need to go
- and no weight loss.
The good news is most cases of acute colitis will be solved and resolved within 72 hours.
