Mucus in Stools

Mucus in Stools

 Pet supplements for mucus in stools and digestive upset for dogs and cats.

Herbal remedies to help prevent digestive upset and mucus in stools passed by cats and dogs.

A healthy digestive tract is critical to overall health and well-being. The digestive health of an animal can impact not only the breakdown and absorption of nutrients, but can also have a significant impact on other body systems including the immune system, the liver, bone marrow and adrenals.

Digestive dysfunction can result in abdominal cramping and pain in animals. Like humans, abdominal discomfort may be caused by an accumulation of gas in the abdomen and can be extremely painful.  Dogs and cats of all ages and breeds may be affected by abdominal pain, although some breeds are likely at greater risk than others.

If your pet has mucus in their stools, this may be an indication of irritation in the stomach and large intestine. Dogs and cats are prone to digestive upsets which causes much discomfort.

Take your pet to the vet if this problem does not clear up after a few days. In the meantime give your furry friend’s stomach a rest by withholding food for 24 hours. Thereafter, feed him a bland diet which contains cooked rice with chicken or meat to soothe the stomach lining.

Gradually return him to a normal diet. However, if mucus in stools persists, your vet will take a stool sample and perform tests to check for viruses and bacteria.

Mucus in stools may occur as a result of a number of factors ranging from eating unusual things like rotten or spoilt food, garbage or road kill, overeating, food allergies, ingesting poisons and chemicals as sudden changes in diet. It may also be due to parasitic infections such as hookworm, whip worm, roundworm or tapeworm, diarrhea, colitis, parvo or corona virus.

Other suggestions to avoid mucus in your stools:

Feed your pet high quality, commercial pet food free of corn, wheat and soy as well as a well balanced all natural diet that contains all the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

If your pet has loose stools, give the stomach a rest by withholding food for at least 24 hours and water for 12 hours. If the weather is warm, then feed your pet small amounts of water often to ease stomach irritation. 

Usually following digestive upset, your pet should fast. Feed a bland diet of cooked rice with skinless chicken and follow with a small amount of plain yogurt which contains natural bacterial cultures and soothes the bowel.

Do not make sudden changes to your pet's diet. Introduce new foods gradually by adding it to old food. It typically takes 3 – 5 days to change the diet

Ensure that your pet is de-wormed regularly. 

Keep your pet away from spoilt food and garbage cans.
