Diarrhea is no fun no matter what the case, but with a pet you've got the discomfort and sickness along with a pet's less impressive self-control to deal with. Definitely no good for anybody's health and well-being!
If your dog, cat, or other small pet is having issues with a single or ongoing bout of diarrhea or loose stools, there are natural remedies you can consider to get your pet's digestive health back in working order.
First, be sure to consider the cause of your pet's health condition. A course of antibiotics can lead to diarrhea, in which case yogurt or probiotics is often the best remedy. A change in diet or environmental influences can also cause diarrhea.
Natural Pet Remedies: Pumpkin, tripe, probiotics, and cayenne pepper are all popular home remedies for diarrhea in pets. However, a combined remedy in the form of a pumpkin and chicken puree is so far the most popular and effective natural cure for diarrhea. Check out the recipe below.

[YEA] Hi, one of my cats had an awful bout of diarrhea after having some teeth removed at the vets (I suspect the drugs the vet used were too much for my cat's system).
We initially returned to the vet for a remedy/diagnosis (as the diarrhea had blood in it and was mucus-sy) and the vet gave us some harsh chemically smelling concoction.
My cat refused the concoction for his diarrhea and was very stressed when my husband and I tried to administer it. After a day or 2 it occurred to me to try some bentonite clay. I mixed up a solution (a flat tablespoon in a jar of water, leave to absorb, without mixing for at least 20 minutes, then mix)) and offered the cat some of the thicker part of the mix. He licked it all up without hesitation, I offered him more and he took the second dose. This was in the evening. The next day he did a nice healthy poo and was back to his normal self.
Please look into bentonite, green clay and edible clays generally. Thay are SO good for health (human and animal)

[YEA] The boiled chicken, pumpkin and rice is a winner! Our dog (a GWP) had extremely loose bowels for a week and was messing everywhere! Unsure why and how he got it... Anyway, after boiling up a chicken, cooking pumpkin and rice, we started to feed him small amounts. Within 24 hours he had started to firm up and then in 4 days was completely back to normal. Very impressed earth clinic. Thanks.Posted by Greenllll (Chicken Hill, Sc) on 10/22/2012
[YEA] testimonial: The dog had diahreah, & was waking up in the middle of the night. This went on for a few days. The owner quit feeding the dog. The dog started growling at me cause it was hungry. I explained to the owner that the dog's instincts, which it uses to survive, was telling it that it was desperate for food, enough to growl, and it needed to be fed. I showed the website Earthclinic, and the remedy it suggests, pumpkin & boiled chicken. I fed the dog this mixture and the dog, for the first time, slept all night. Problem solved. The dog was fed 2 TBS and a cup of chicken the 1st night. Didn't want to overfeed it. Now the dog is bigger than ever.
"Medicines may have scientific proof to back them up, but big Pharma also has a big motive to do misleading research, money. All DRUGS are poisonous. That's why they say "May cause liver or kidney damage. " as side-effects. Or, "Not for people w/ liver or kidney disease. " or "nephro (kidney)toxicity" or "hepa (liver) toxicity). The liver & kidney filter out poisons. That's their job. Herbs cannot be patented, so no one can make money off them, so no one invests millions into proper scientific research. Medicine takes 1 component of an herb and makes it un-natural, so they can patent it, and charge a lot for it. But the herb was designed for the human body. We co-evolved together. Herbs almost never have side-effects, and healing herbs that are good for you always taste & smell pleasant. To test if a medicine or herb is healthy, chew it & taste it. Taste revolting? Your body knows. You cannot trust the doctors. Trust your own eyes. A vet would have charged a lot of money for some medication to stop up the dog's guts, and it probably wouldn't have worked as well as the proper food (herb).
Death by Medicine documentary:
Psychiatry an Industry of Death:
shows the history of the cult of MDs, who, like sorcerors, walk around in their white robes, handing out potions. And supposedly, only they have the REAL truth, like any cult. "Scientifically validated".
The War on Health
This one goes into the history of the FDA, & how truly healing herbs have been made illegal, and replaced by the true quacks, the MDs drugs.
This story is as old as the burning of "witches" for offering an alternative cure to the preists'.Replied by Gayletraver

[YEA] Dog Diarrhea
I have a miniature dachshund. He ate some spoiled chicken liver and he had bloody diarrhea accompanied by projectile vomiting. He smelled to high heaven!!! I called a friend who owns three dogs and she told me to give him an anti-diarrheal medication which works on humans. However after two days on this medication my dog seemed to be worse and he was acting very lethargic and refusing to eat. He was still drinking water. I called the vet and of course they told me to bring him in. I was a little leery of that as a coworker's dog had experienced the same thing and she took her dog to the vet and by the time they were thru with her dog she had a $2,300 bill (the dog stayed at the vet four days and had IV fluids, IV medications etc) Anyway I prayed for my dog and then I went on your website as I sure did not have $2,300 to spend. I noted the rice, chicken, canned pumpkin remedy. I TRIED IT AND IT WORKED!!! I used three parts rice, one part chicken and two heaping tablespoons of pumpkin twice a day. Thank you for sharing such an effective and frugal remedy.Replied by Sandy
