Pet supplements to provide bowel support in dogs and cats.

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

The animal body is like a machine, taking in food as fuel and discharging waste, which includes 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 into the small intestines.

However, fiber and roughage cannot be broken down and digested and instead, passes unchanged through the small intestine to the large intestine or colon. When fiber and roughage enter the colon, water is extracted from it and is re-absorbed back into the body and 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. When disease or disorder occurs, dogs and cats are unable to complete the digestive process.

Animals need to follow a healthy diet, with the correct amount of fiber and roughage. Too little roughage and too many fillers 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 and supplementing your pet's diet can assist in regulating and supporting healthy bowel function.

Common bowel problems include:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Inflammatory Bowel Disorder (IBD)




Ways in which pet supplements can help:

If your pet is struggling to pass tools or passing frequent loose, runny stools, your pet may need a correction to gut health, including Prebiotic and Probiotic support. See products below.

If your pet passes excessive amounts of gas, this may also indicate a food reaction or bowel problem. See products below.

If your pet has loose stool, your pet may need a bowel regulator to help ‘bulk up’ fecal matter. Similarly your pet may need a stool softener to help loosen hard, firm stools that may be backing up in the bowel. See products below.

Other suggestions:

Keep garbage cans closed and put away. If your pet eats the wrong food, including human food, it can cause gas to accumulate, diarrhea or constipation

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.

 Conventional Remedies:

If your pet is experiencing constipation, your vet may prescribe a stool softener. If your pet has runny stools, may recommend a product to bulk up fecal matter. Your vet may also examine your pet for IBS or IBD.
