The only thing worse than knowing your dog is not feeling well is not knowing why they’re not feeling well. And when it comes to our dogs experiencing diarrhea, it can become challenging when we’re unable to rule out the usual suspects for the source of illness.
So what can cause diarrhea in dogs? The leading causes are due to dogs ingesting substances like food, poisonous plants, or having an adverse reaction to a medication, etc.
But sometimes the source of illness or the reason does not fall neatly into one of those categories. Continue reading as we explore some of those pesky uncommon causes for diarrhea in dogs. Understanding these unusual causes will arm you with the ability to diagnose and remedy the problem quickly, ultimately restoring your dog’s health.
So what are the most important things to know before adopting a dog?
Generally, there are mainly two points of contention to explore. The first is whether or not you’re a good fit for dog parenting.
