Diverticulitis

Herbal remedies to help reduce symptoms of diverticulitis 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 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.

Diverticulitis is a chronic disease that affects your animal’s large intestine.

Diverticulitis is a chronic medical condition that consists of the infection and the rupture of small pouches located in the dog’s large intestine. When the fecal matter cannot be eliminated, it stays in the colon causing sore spots, which develop into pockets.

Diverticular disease consists of three conditions that involve the development of small sacs or pockets in the wall of the colon, including diverticulosis, diverticular bleeding, and diverticulitis.

Diverticulitis causes pain and discomfort to your dog and cat. The level of pain varies in intensity and severity, occurring in the abdominal area and typically on the left side. The symptoms of diverticulitis are similar to colitis.

Untreated diverticulitis can cause serious medical conditions such as infections, bleeding, bowel perforations or intestinal blockage. It can also cause a fistula. A fistula develops when 2 separate damaged tissues stick together after getting into close contact.

Symptoms include:

Pain in the left side of the abdominal cavity

Cramps

Bloating

Spasms

Fever and chills

Diarrhea

Nausea and vomiting

Diverticulitis is generally associated with cramping and bloating and may create abdominal pain and spasms. Your pet will likely need to defecate frequently and stools may be watery and loose. Stools may also be bloody due to small blood vessels that rupture in the colon.  

The infection can cause fever and chills. Symptoms are similar to other disorders of the intestinal tract (colitis, bowel disease). It is important that you take your pet for a checkup and diagnosis.

Veterinarians believe that diverticulitis is probably caused by a diet that is low in fiber as well as constipation. An animal may also be genetically predisposed for developing this disease. If your dog or cat has had trouble defecating, feces could gather in the large bowel and cause infection and irritation.
