Loose stool and diarrhea suggest an imbalance in the gut. For improvement, we recommend therapeutic doses of probiotics, Probiotic Miracle®, to restore the natural balance of beneficial flora.

What is diarrhea and loose stool?

Diarrhea, or loose stool, are essentially different intensities of the same problem. They are defined by the passage of loose, watery, or unformed stools. It's often accompanied by an increased volume and frequency of bowel movements, primarily due to the rapid transit of food through the intestine.

A mild form of diarrhea is known as loose stool, with similar treatment approaches for both conditions in dogs.

Cause of diarrhea in dogs

Common causes include poor diets leading to conditions like leaky gut, food intolerances, or weakened immune health, promoting harmful bacterial growth (e.g., C. difficile). Problematic foods may include beef, chicken, fish, eggs, and certain commercial dog foods, among others.

Certain medications, especially antibiotics, can lead to loose stools and diarrhea as well as they disrupt the gut microbiome.

Natural remedies for diarrhea and loose stools

  1. Probiotics

    Probiotics like Probiotic Miracle® are key for treating diarrhea, improving food tolerances, and addressing other causes such as infections or digestive imbalances.

  2. Enzymes (optional)

    Add a digestive enzyme like Enzyme Miracle® if you notice:

    • Stools are large, gray, and foul-smelling
    • Multiple large stools passed in a day
  3. Water

    Ensure your dog stays hydrated to help the colon flush out toxins, as dehydration is a common complication of diarrhea.

  4. Low-fat diet

    Temporarily switch to a low-fat diet, splitting food into three meals for the first couple of days before returning to the regular diet.
