What Causes Gastrointestinal Issues in Pets?

Gastrointestinal issues in pets can range from food allergies and intolerance to parasites, bacterial infections, dietary indiscretion, poor quality food, stress, or a variety of other reasons. The most common symptoms are vomiting and diarrhea. If your pet is experiencing persistent gastrointestinal issues, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

How Our Vet Can Help with Gastrointestinal Problems in Your Pet

  • GI diets

What to Expect from Our Veterinary Specialist

Before providing any treatment, our specialist will thoroughly examine your pet and take a complete medical history. This allows us to fully assess the cause of the GI issue and determine the best course of action. We’ll then discuss with you all possible treatments so that you can make an informed decision about which is most suited to your pet’s needs.

We will ask how long your pet has been experiencing the issue, what type of food they are eating, and any other relevant information. We will also discuss any lifestyle changes that may be necessary to help your pet recover from its GI issues.
