HOME REMEDIES FOR DOGS- Diarrhea Does Not Have To Be A Disaster

by Dr. Deva Khalsa on July 16, 2012

When I was in my Emergency Service rotation at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, we were all amazed at how many people brought their dogs in to the Emergency Room because of diarrhea.  Let’s face it; diarrhea is not a life-threatening problem.   We don’t run to the ER if we have diarrhea.  Yet again, when our dogs have diarrhea it can be a real disaster to the carpets in the house and create a lot of mess to clean up.There are so many excellent home remedies for dogs with diarrhea and most cases can be nipped in the bud.

A particular Chinese herb that’s readily available at most Chinese stores is called Po Chai.   This product works wonders with diarrhea and that’s an understatement.  It’s just short of a miracle.  It costs just a few bucks and if you’re smart you’ll figure out where to get it and keep it in your first aid kit for your dog.  There are several tiny plastic vials in long boxes set into another box that holds them.  In these vials are tiny beads of the Chinese herbal mixture. You can give an entire vial to a large dog up to three times a day.  A medium sized dog can get one half of a vial and a small dog a third of a vial.  Usually one or two doses clear the diarrhea right up.

I also like to add cooked sweet potatoes to the food for a few days because sweet potatoes have natural substances that reduce inflammation in the bowels.
