Digestive Disorders

Herbal remedies to help support proper digestion and limit digestive disorders in dogs and cats.

Nutrition plays a major role in bone, teeth, skin and coat health and is the result of a well-functioning, synchronized effort by the immune systems and tissues and organs in the body. Plant botanicals support the process of free radical scavenging, the skin’s ability to withstand and repair the effects of environmental exposure to toxins, antigens, microorganisms and skin wounds by maintaining proper liver, adrenal, immune, and intestinal function; protect the skin and connective tissues in the joints, reduce inflammation in the joints, acidify urine, improve immune function and build resistance to allergies.

Digestive disorders in cats and dogs encompass a wide range of symptoms and diseases such as gas, diarrhea, and vomiting, bad breath, bloat, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), colitis and many others. Most pet digestive disorders occur because of the pet’s diet. Many of the best selling, premium brands contain grains and hidden fillers that can cause a variety of digestive problems and subsequently, a weakened immune system. Pets can also be allergic to some of the ingredients causing a great deal of inflammation and discomfort.

Gastrointestinal disease can be minor or serious in nature. Dogs and cats are most commonly affected by dietary intolerance, due to toxicity acquired by inferior foods, ingestion of poisonous substances, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and stomach cancer. Diagnostic tests are required to rule out serious and dangerous conditions to your pet’s health. If you detect symptoms that alarm you or serious changes in pet behavior, contact your vet immediately.

Vomiting

Diarrhea

Weight loss

Bloody stools

Halitosis

Constipation

Gastrointestinal Diseases:

Gastroenteritis

Inflammatory bowel disease

Irritable bowel syndrome

Food allergy

Gastroenteritis

Gastrointestinal disease is characterized by inflammation of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Pets suffering from gastroenteritis exhibit symptoms of diarrhea, lack of appetite and vomiting. Gastroenteritis may develop due to various factors that include viral or bacterial infections, toxicity and pancreatitis.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

IBD occurs when inflammatory cells begin to attack the intestine, often causing chronic inflammation. Although the cause of IBD isn't established, pets suffer from the disease due to genetic predisposition and abnormal immune system response. The diagnosis is complex and involves biopsy of the intestine to differentiate IBD from stomach cancer.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

IBS is a fairly common condition in both cats and dogs. IBS simply refers to a group of gastro-intestinal disorders that causes irritation and inflammation of the mucous membranes of the digestive tract and can occur in the large intestine (colitis), the small intestine (enteritis), or the stomach (gastritis).

Food Allergy

Food allergy is the body's reaction to certain ingredients present in the food. Dogs develop hypersensitivity to certain ingredients consumed over a period of time. The allergy is often accompanied by skin reactions, redness, inflammation and hives. The vet will use a trial and error method to eliminate potential allergens from the dog's diet.

Stomach Tumors

Stomach tumors may develop as growths or masses in the digestive tract. Most tumors are surgically extracted and subjected to biopsies to determine the type and grade of cancer present. Dogs also require chemotherapy and radiation therapy to slow disease progression.

Parasite Infections

Worms such as tapeworms, hookworms and heartworms attach themselves to the lining of the intestine and multiply. They feed on essential nutrients and blood once attached to the lining. In order to detect parasite infections, the vet will conduct a fecal exam.

Intestinal Blockage

This condition develops if foreign bodies get lodged in the intestinal tract. Tumors large enough to prevent digestion of food also cause intestinal blockage. This is an emergency situation that requires prompt surgical intervention to prevent death.

Herbal Remedies:

Herbal remedies function as digestive tonics while soothing and supporting the stomach lining, esophagus and entire digestive tract, to relax symptoms of gastrointestinal disease, to soothe stomach bloat and to provide symptomatic relief of digestive problems in the digestive tract, to soothe gastric mucus membranes and stomach bloat, to promote digestive & gastrointestinal system health and overall health and wellbeing and to reduce the imbalance in the body’s systems in dogs and cats.
