Gastrointestinal disease is a frequent problem for dogs and cats. It’s really easy for fur babies to suffer gastroenteritis by carrying bacteria, virus or parasites in the daily life.
Bacterial gastroenteritis is usually treated with antibiotics, however, long-term use of antibiotics could lead to imbalanced intestinal micro-flora, which affect not only intestinal heath but also the whole body.
Currently, there are no effective treatments for other gastroenteritis like inflammatory bowel disease or viral gastroenteritis. Severe diarrhea caused by such diseases could weaken your fur babies, even fatal especially for puppies and kittens.
