Bowel Discomfort

Bowel Disorders

Remedies for bowel problems in cats and dogs to help prevent canine and feline intestinal disorders.

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.

The animal body is like a machine – taking in fuel (food) and discharging waste (urine and solid waste). During the process of digestion, your pet takes nutrients from food and breaks them down into usable components in the body. Digestion and absorption of nutrients first takes place in the stomach and then transfers to the small intestines.

However, fiber and roughage cannot be broken down and digested and therefore passes unchanged through the small intestine to the large intestine (also known as the colon). When this matter first enters the colon, water is extracted from it and is re-absorbed back into the body – the matter left behind loses water and becomes more solid.

This solid waste is then propelled along the colon by rhythmic contractions of the muscles. When solid waste enters the largest part of the colon, known as the rectum, animals get the signal that they need to empty their bowels.

Conditions related to the bowels:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Inflammatory Bowel Disorder (IBD)

Constipation

Diarrhea

Flatulence

Animals need to follow a healthy diet, with the correct amount of fiber and roughage. Too little roughage will lead to loose stools (diarrhea) while stools that have too much fiber will be hard to pass and lead to constipation. Regular bowel movements are essential to the health of your pet.

If your pet is struggling to pass tools, or passing frequent loose, runny stools, consult with your vet about possible bowel problems. If your pet passes excessive amounts of gas, this may also indicate a bowel problem.

If your pet has loose stool, your vet may prescribe a medication to help ‘bulk up’ their fecal matter. Similarly your vet may prescribe a stool softener to help loosen hard, firm stools that may be backing up in the bowel.

Keep in mind these medications may come with other side effects. If you suspect your pet may have an irritable bowel, be constipated or suffering from diarrhea – consult with your vet and research different options.

Remove your pet’s food after a while if it is not finished. Periods of fasting throughout the day are very important for effective digestion and detoxification.

Ensure your pet is eating a balanced, high quality diet with plenty of raw and unprocessed food (preferably organic). Flatulence and digestive problems are often solved by a change in diet.
