Digestive upsets are probably the most common reason to take your pet to the vet. They can be caused by something quite simple such as inappropriate food, scavenging, a change of diet, stress or something more serious such as bacterial infection, parasites or problems with digesting food.

Digestive Upsets

There are two main types of digestive upset. The colon or large intestine is the last part of the intestines and is principally responsible for absorbing fluid from the intestinal contents. Inflammation of the large intestine (colitis) is the most common form of digestive upset, and it results in the dog needing to frequently pass small amounts of diarrhoea that often include mucus and sometimes traces of bright red blood. The blood is a result of the inflammation and is generally not a cause for concern. Diarrhoea may also be accompanied by vomiting in the initial stages.

Less commonly a dog will develop diarrhoea due to an abnormality in the small intestine, responsible for breaking down and absorbing food. This typically results in the pet passing large volumes of diarrhoea relatively infrequently. At the same time they may be vomiting and can rapidly lose weight. This is a more serious condition and needs urgent investigation by your veterinary surgeon.

Formula

Montmorillonite

  • A special type of clay which binds bacteria viruses and toxins, thus protecting the intestine from their damaging effects.
  • Has been shown to be twenty times more effective than other commonly used clays such as kaolin.

Probiotic

  • PROMAX® uses an EU-registered strain of probiotic called Enterococcus faecium E1707, which multiplies rapidly in the intestine, increasing gut acidity and inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Enterococcus faecium helps to restore the natural balance of gut bacteria.

Prebiotics and Glutamine

  • Mannan oligosaccharides are yeast extracts which bind themselves to harmful bacteria and help prevent them from attaching to the gut lining. They also aid digestion and enhance the immune system.
  • Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid. It is the most important nutrient for the cells lining the intestine, and provides these cells with vital energy. This reduces damage to the gut lining, thus speeding recovery.

What else can I do to help?

Your veterinary surgeon will advise you on other measures that might be beneficial to your pet, and may include:

  • A bland, easily digestible diet
  • A period of fasting if your pet is being sick
  • Medication to control vomiting, or to treat an infection if they suspect one is present

Digestive upsets usually improve within a few days. If you are concerned that your pet is not improving, seems dull or lethargic, or is vomiting repeatedly then you should contact your veterinary surgeon as soon as possible.
