Diarrhea and soft faeces in dogs: causes and solutions

Diarrhea and soft faeces are common problems in dogs, which can put a strain on owners and their four-legged friends. The causes are varied, but they often lie in the dog’s diet.

Causes of digestive problems

Inadequate diet

Dogs are naturally too… 70 to 80% carnivores, and a diet that strays too far from this biological basis can cause digestive upset. It is important to know that around 90% of all finished food is so-called industrial food and is not suitable for a healthy dog diet. However, the feed industry is very clever at hiding this and invests millions in advertising to keep it that way. Unfortunately, feed law offers her significantly more freedom than food law does for us humans.

Unhealthy dry food

Some types of dry food contain fillers, preservatives and artificial additives that can damage a dog’s digestive tract can burden. Dry food generally doesn’t belong in a bowl because it has nothing to do with nutrition. It’s like the McDonald’s for dogs. But there are also unsuitable wet foods. The declaration is crucial, but unfortunately it is not always understandable for dog owners. We explain this in our food check.

Allergies and intolerances

Just like people, dogs can also react allergically or develop intolerances to certain food components, which can lead to diarrhea. The background often lies in diet and a weakened immune system, 80% of which is located in the intestine.

Influence of medications on digestion

Not just diet, but also medications such as Antibiotics or wormers can have a significant impact on dogs’ intestinal health. Unfortunately, antibiotics used to fight infections can also destroy the healthy bacteria in the intestines, which can lead to diarrhea and loose stools. Similarly, worming treatments, which are necessary to rid the dog of parasites, can cause temporary indigestion. In such cases, it is particularly important to support and rebuild the dog’s intestinal flora in order to maintain and promote digestive health.
