Dog Diarrhea Got You and Your Pooch Down? Diar-eze is Here for You.

Digestive troubles are awful for your dog. Unfortunately, your dog can’t get relief from symptoms on his own—and he can’t exactly tell you what’s going on, either. Until you help him out, dog diarrhea will be a difficult problem for both of you. Not only can it lead to a mess inside your home, it’s embarrassing for both of you in public. It can ruin your clothing, furniture, and carpeting—and let’s not even talk about the smell.

Many things can cause dog diarrhea. Sometimes your dog will eat something he shouldn’t have, or he’s made a dramatic change in diet, like a switch from dry to wet food. Your dog could even have emotional stress caused by a move or time spent in a kennel. All of these things can upset digestion.

Fortunately, relief is in sight! Diar-eze is an all-natural digestive aid that restores balance to your pet’s system. Since it comes in both a spray formula and in granules, it’s also incredibly easy to use! Simply add a single tablespoon of the granules to each meal for medium and large-breed dogs and a teaspoon for smaller dogs. For an even easier solution, use three pumps of Diar-eze spray in the water bowl. You can order either one from the store. Or, get both in the Diar-eze Full Treatment Pack and use them together to relieve all your dog’s symptoms and regulate his digestion. The best part is that Diar-eze can even be used in conjunction with any traditional medication your veterinarian prescribes—and since it’s all natural, Diar-eze has no side-effects!

The formula also includes trace minerals and all-natural plant enzymes to help your dog absorb nutrients from his food. Get Diar-eze today! Your dog will feel better, and you can both get back to a life without the hassle of dog diarrhea.

How to Relieve Uncomfortable Dog Constipation

Your dog is the most loyal companion you have. Your dog can protect you, offer company when you need it, and be otherwise perfectly happy with food, water, and some exercise. However, sometimes there are circumstances where your dog needs a little help because they can’t help themselves. One of these is situations is constipation. Luckily, there are products on the market that can help your pooch become more regular and relieve their uncomfortable symptoms.

How to spot dog constipation

There are numerous things that can cause dog constipation, and they’re usually the same as the causes in humans: dehydration, foreign objects in the gut, or sometimes there is just too little fiber in their diet. Dog constipation can also be caused by excessive stress from moving or from another aggressive pet in the house (like a mean cat). I’ve included a video below that shows a dog that is constipated, so compare your dog’s behavior to that to determine if your dog might be suffering from the same thing.

Dogs usually have a hunched posture when trying to produce a stool and may be vomiting, have a poor appetite, and be lethargic in addition. They may also make frequent trips outside with very little or no stool produced. Your dog may also whine in discomfort, as dog constipation can be very painful.

Using Lax-eze to treat dog constipation.

It’s always a good idea to verify dog constipation with a vet if the case is severe or lasts for more than a day or two. However, you can also treat dog constipation yourself with Lax-eze constipation formula. It’s offered in both granules and in a homeopathic liquid. Both are also offered together in a full treatment pack which includes a 10oz jar of granules and a 2oz bottle of liquid.

If your vet prescribes any traditional drug therapy, you won’t need to worry about using Lax-eze with it. Lax-eze has an all-natural and safe formula that can either be used on its own or in conjunction with other therapies. Lax-eze can help regulate your dog’s digestion and help normalize their stool, which will ease their discomfort and make them much healthier.

Recognizing Dog Constipation Symptoms

The potential for constipation, difficulty defecating, increases as canines age. The digestive and elimination systems slow down and become less efficient with age, so older dogs tend to have more frequent problems with voiding and defecating.

The first signs of dog constipation may include reduced activity, eating less or avoiding food and whining for no apparent reason. Failure to expel waste is uncomfortable and moving around compounds the discomfort; your canine may not engage in playtime or perk up for the morning walk in an effort to move less.

Other symptoms to watch for include:

  1. Straining to produce a bowel movement without eliminating a stool. You may notice a small amount of watery liquid during these efforts. This mucus discharge from the anus may resemble diarrhea.
  2. Producing dry, chalky clumps of fecal matter.
  3. Scooting.
  4. Redness, swelling or tenderness in and around the anal area.
  5. Abdominal tenderness and/or bloating.
  6. An abnormal gait. Your pet may appear to be “walking on tiptoes” with an arched back and stiff back legs. Some pet owners report their pets “shuffle” instead of walking with a normal stride.

More Serious Concerns Normal elimination is a sign that your canine is healthy. If you notice changes in your pet’s stool that include changes in color, excessive mucus or blood, contact your vet immediately to rule out serious health conditions and digestive tract disorders.

Treatment Encourage your pet to drink plenty of water, especially during warmer weather to avoid dehydration. Mineral oil added to food works as a stool softener; making elimination more productive and less painful. Follow directions to administer the proper dosage based on your pet’s age, weight and normal activity level.

Adding more fiber to your dog’s diet and increasing daily exercise will help regulate your pet’s elimination. It is normal for your dog to have occasional irregularity; however, if symptoms persist consult with your veterinarian.
