Thank you for joining me on the pet doctor blog

Thank you for joining me on the Pet Doctor Blog. We have gotten a lot of questions about diarrhea in dogs so I want to talk a little bit about a condition called colitis in dogs, which many of you have probably experienced with your dogs. Colitis is a diarrhea in dogs primarily, although cats can get it as well. The first sign of colitis in dogs is usually blood in the diarrhea, there is also usually mucus in the diarrhea, so it can look like a fairly severe condition and sometimes, it can lead to a very, very serious condition, but most colitis is brought on by stress. We see it a lot after boarding, after dogs have gone through some type of traumatic experience, change in weather, especially if it has been raining for a while. It also can occur in cold weather because the dogs do not want to go out on the same schedule. Any kind of changes in there activity level, anything that causes them to be stressed can cause a colitis which is usually easily treated. Colitis in dogs is generally treated with some medicine called azulfidine or metronidazole and along with a prescription diet dog food that is high in fiber. So, if your dog or your cat gets a bloody mucusy diarrhea, you need to have it checked out because there are some other conditions that can be very, very serious and some of them can even be life threatening, so you want to make sure it is something as simple as a colitis and if so, then it is something that can be treated quite easily and it will usually clear up within 24 to 36 hours. Thanks for joining me and I hope this answered some of your questions with regard to colitis in dogs and cats. If you have any other pet care questions please let us know.
