Dog diarrhea shouldn't be an issue with a healthy animal.

Dog diarrhea isn't a disease. While the diarrhea is indeed real, there's usually an underlying condition causing the diarrhea. The condition could be related to a illness, irritation of the bowels, poison/toxin or even something as simple as an improper diet. While diarrhea isn't classified as a disease it can be potentially fatal. If the animal has an episode of diarrhea that spans more than 48 hours a veterinarian should be sought immediately. Also, when additional signs of lethargy, abdominal pain, vomitting, blood in stool, and/or dehydration are associated with the diarrhea it may represent a severe situation that needs to be dealt with immediately. Often times diarrhea isn't a serious health risk, it's just smelly, messy and makes you and your dog sad.

How to treat dog diarrhea.

Most cases of cat and dog diarrhea are easily cured. The consumption of water and small meals over a two to three day period usually results in the diarrhea resolving by itself. In more severe cases such as inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) caused by bacteria, viruses, or intestinal worms, a more aggressive treatment is necessary.

Essiac as a cure for dog diarrhea.

Essiac tea has eight natural herbal ingredients which act in unison to treat diarrhea and the conditions which contribute to the diarrhea. Slippery elm bark, turkey rhubarb root, and burdock root have a soothing effect on the intestinal tract, plus they supply a mucilage with the consistency of oatmeal which not only stops the diarrhea but also helps cleanse the colon of any foreign bodies, such as unwanted bacteria, intestinal worms, etc., allowing the intestinal tract to regain its integrity. Kelp supplies an overwhelming amount of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients which nourish the entire body making it healthier and stronger. Plus, kelp removes unwanted heavy metals and toxins from the GI tract. Watercress and sheep sorrel have properties which eliminate bacteria and fungus/yeast from the system. Red clover and burdock root cleanse the blood stream and liver of toxins.

All these herbs combined into Essiac tea makes this herbal remedy an extremely effective treatment to cure chronic or severe diarrhea. The best method for dealing with your dog's diarrheal issues is to prevent them. This can be done with a small daily dose of Essiac tea mixed with turkey broth. Pennies a day for a peace of mind.
