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.
We have a Pitbull who has a very sensitive digestive system. After a couple of bouts of bloody diarrhea (about 6 mos. apart) and $600 vet bills, I came across this website when the third bout happened. Ran out to the store and purchased canned pumpkin, rice and a couple of chicken breasts. Within 30 min. his stools were visibly more normal - no blood and formed instead of water. A few hours later, he was acting like his normal self again. Kept him on the pumpkin for another day and did the rice and chicken for a few days before incorporating his regular diet into it. I swear by it!! The vet had put him on steroids, given him a prescription diarrhea med. and told us to feed him chicken and rice - all for $600 and I don't believe that steroids are healthy at all.
Can't tell you how many remedies I've gotten from EarthClinic, including organic apple cider vinegar to remove a wart from my grandchild that nothing else worked on, and they've all worked!!! No wonder BigPharma has gone to such lengths to brainwash us to believe that it's quackery!! Worked 100 years ago - why not today? Thanks much!!
Pumpkin WORKS in the vast majority of cases. It is well documented for anyone who bothers to research it. I had a very sick puppy, very loose diarrhea and dehydrated. I gave him one tablespoon of pumpkin puree mixed with boiled chicken breast, boiled WHITE rice, and one capsule of dog probiotics mixed in. Immediate positive results. Why would anyone hesitate to use a natural food with a proven track record to cure a dog's illness?
I now give my puppy one teaspoon of pumpkin in his food once a day, and never any problem with diarrhea or loose runny stool.
Don't hesitate to try this. It does work, and quickly.
Boiled Chicken and Pumpkin Puree
I wanted to share my experiences with my 4 month old kitten. He was throwing up, not eating, not drinking, and had diarrhea. In a period of only 3 days he had lost a significant amount of weight and looked different, a lot smaller in appearance, and very sad. He slept a lot, and even cried without a reason. I read A LOT. I told myself that if he didn't get better after 2 days I would take him to the vet. I urge you to try, but if your pet absolutely does not respond, take him to the vet. This is what I did: My kitten resisted the food and drink so I had to take baby steps in order to be successful. I want to encourage those in the same situation to be patient and take your time. Do everything in increments and a LITTLE at a time. Every few hours I would do something, anything.
I started feeding him just a few very tiny tiny pieces of cooked chicken breast alone by hand.
I put Coconut Oil on my fingers and let him lick it off for calories.
I laid him on my lap and gave him a tiny bit of apple cider vinegar mixed with water from the side of his mouth. He was NOT a fan. With a resisting animal, be sure to use very little at a time. I gave him a tablespoon of the diluted mixture at a time (if I gave him any more, he would just throw it up).
I also got him unflavored baby pedyalyte (the generic brand) from Walmart to keep him hydrated. He did not like the taste so I had to dilute it in water. I alternated this with the diluted apple cider vinegar.
I put apple cider vinegar on his neck (I had to do this AFTER he ate, because the scent turned him off from food even more).
I kept noise/bright lights to a minimum and made sure he could sleep as much as possible. Sleep builds up the immune system. I'd like to note that my kitten did not receive all this at the same time. Every few hours I would try one of the above things.
My goal was to get him eating a mixture of pumpkin, chicken, and brown rice (the rice really helps). And he did! It took some time, but as he got stronger, his appetite got better. It got to the point where he started eating the chicken/pumpkin/rice mixture out of his bowl and drinking pedialyte/water mixture out of his bowl as well. In two days my husband and I saw an incredible difference! Thank God. It was honestly miraculous.
After 4 days he became hungrier and we ommitted the chicken and started giving him his dry cat food mixed with rice and pumpkin. It's been a week, and even now that he's better, we continue to do this along with the diluted pedyalyte. After another week I will ommit the pedyalyte, and use ACV in his water. We will continue to used a heaping tablespoon of pumpkin and another of rice mixed in with each of his meals.
I spent about $5 on organic coconut oil, $3 on generic pedyalyte, $3 on a giant can of pumkin, $3 on brown minute rice and 2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts from home. People who say this is too expensive should not have pets. It's nothing compared to a massive vet bill, which you should also be prepared to pay if need be. Not to mention I still have more than enough left over to literally treat at least 20 cats.
Boiled Chicken and Pumpkin Puree
YEA!! I started with just pumpkin, then later: Rice, chicken and pumpkin. My 3yr old cat is a large, lanky tabby that doesn't have any body fat to sustain him if sick too long. When I found his back-end covered with bloody diahrea and he was too weak to clean up--not to mention I didn't want him to ingest whatever had caused this to his system--I trimmed off the long fur under his tail and down the back of his legs.
The only thing I could get him to touch was the juice off of thawed chicken breasts. Along with stopping the bleeding, dehydration was one of my main concerns. He would look at his water but go back to bed without drinking any... I googled "what can I do if my cat has bloody diarhea?"--and it was all your responses that made me decide to try this. The results are just incredible!!!
I would offer the chicken juice every hour and he would drink a little each time. After deciding to try the pumpkin, I presented the open can to him and he actual gave it two feeble licks, which gave me hope. I took a dab on my finger tip and forced him to take it. About 15min later he actually licked the gravy from some canned cat food. (this from a cat that had earlier turned down the liquid from a can of tuna) But when I grabbed a plate and served him a small portion he wouldn't have any more. An hour later I forced him to take another finger tip of pumpkin and 15 min later gave him some more gravy from canned cat food. Within the hour he used the litter box and the stool was a very pink/brown liquid--still a fair amount of blood. At this point he was still too weak to cover his toilet.
Since he'd eaten the gravies, I decided to try the paste with brown rice, broiled chicken breast and pumpkin---I just smashed it together as I don't have anything fancier. He ate about a rounded tablespoon. I left the fluids drained from a can of corn and the juice and oils drained from broiling the chicken breasts mixed with the tuna juice he hadn't eaten earlier. Throughout the day he would drink the fluids on his own--but he still wouldn't take anymore solids. I had to force 2 more dabs of pumpkin into his mouth--and now that he was feeling better, he was more capable of spitting it out.... So I let him go at his own pace.
This morning I stepped it up (only 36 hours since this started). He wouldn't eat solids and stuck with licking the gravy off his food. So I took the rest of the rice, chicken and added some more pumpkin, and I used one of those "pouches" of cat food--they have more gravy in them--skimmed out the food pieces and mixed the gravy with it. He actually ate half of it, and made sure he got all gravy off the rest--which has a lot more pumpkin in it now. So I opened another pouch and over the next hour I would bring him spoonfuls of a pumpkin-gravy mixed from a chicken catfood. I didn't want to give too much food at one time. In a couple hours he was eating some dry food. A stool he left a few hours later, although very loose, did have some forms beginning to take shape in it and no sign of blood. He's also energetic enough to bury his leavings now, piling the whole litter box on top of it. He says: "you've seen enough! "
Now in just 3 days he's completely back to his reguar self--and this from being at death's door. Pumpkin is a miracle cure!!
Boiled Chicken and Pumpkin Puree
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).

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)
A friend told me about cayenne for cuts and infections. I added salt to it, because that's what I used to use and I liked the taste with salt, and it has cured everything I have used it on. I even broke up completely blocked sinuses with the mix, squirting it in my nose. Go easy and dilute it a lot more than for gargling, since it is Hot, but it works SO fast, and the burn doesn't last very long.
I have used it on so many infections, and had a hound that had some chronic digestive problems. I had cured most of them with yogurt and tripe, but he still wasn't right. When he got diarreha and it was in to its 5th day and Nothing was working, I thought, maybe he had been harboring some bad bacteria all the yrs, and they increased. I had been giving him rice so mixed some cayenne in. It was a funny scene as he took a bite, shook his head, snorted, and walked around the yard, always coming back to eat more till he finished it. The next day his stools were firm!! I made up 2 capsules and gave them just to make sure the cayenne got into his intestines, but I don't think they were needed. His food sensitivities disapeared AND what had been a Very Skiddish animal after a bad scare when I first got him, and he had many before, became brave, and he became a normal, confident animal that I was always trying to create, and Believe Me, I am a Master at desensitizing scared animals, and in minutes, but this guy was a Real challenge. His problem was he never felt well enough to be bold, and he would go aggressive when he felt threatened.
Try cayenne And salt for Any and every infection, or what you think may be one. Boil it and drink it for urinary tract ones.
Just a quick post to report another success. I tried the chicken, rice and pumpkin combo for my siberian husky (8yrs old). She had really watery diarrhea from anxiety over the noise of 4th of July. That went on for 4 days. Once we gave her the pumpkin (2 tbsp every 3 hours) there was good success in less than 24 hrs!!
I started out with just the chicken and rice with no change observed. The key was adding the canned pumpkin (.59 cents!! ) Thanks for the info!
@ Pamperingpaws from Orlando, Fl,
I found your post interesting! I have never used pumpkin for my dog/cat, but being a Sr. Nursing student I do know that you can use metamucil for diahrrea. Metamucil is a "bulk forming" laxative. This means that it regulates the water content in your stool. If your stool has too much water in it (diahrrea), it will add bulk to it. If it has too little (constipation) it will add water to it. I found this interesting when I was learning about them because typically people assume that metamucil is just used for constipation, but actually it can also be prescibed/used for diahrrea as well. I assuming that pumkin does along the lines the same thing. I will probably do a little more research! But I think I am going to try the pumpkin, chicken, and rice diet and also some probiotics for my kitten. Thanks everyone!
Diarrhea can be a symptom of constipation. Having blockage causes the stool to 'cook' and become runny making it allowable to pass the blockage.
Hey cat lovers, I have 3 cats, all male and when I got my Middle one, he got severe diarreha it was so sad, I called the vet and he said that people use canned pumpkin for constipation and diarreha, (for some reason, it works both ways) well it seemed like a huge amount so I went to the baby food section to look, and all I found was sqaush, so I called the vet again and asked if ok to substitute, he said give it a try, and let me tell you it works like a charm!!! plus the little buggers LOVE it!! it is a real treat for them, I feed it to all 3 for good digestion.
Cayenne Pepper cured my Dog's Diarrhea: I read on your website that cayenne pepper sprinkled on some rice would help my dog's diarrhea. I cooked some plain white rice, sprinkled a small bit of cayenne pepper on it, and fed it to my 120 pound dog. He normally eats 2 cups of food twice daily. I started with one cup of rice at breakfast and one at supper the first day. Then 2 cups at each meal the second day. I noticed within 30 MINUTES, his stools were beginning to firm up and by the 3rd day he was back to himself! I never had to take him to the vet, this remedy saved me money, thank you so much Earth Clinic!
Our cat had loose stool issues for a long time and finally I remembered reading about celiac disease in humans and a thought occurred to me. I read the ingredients in her food and found gluten and immediately removed gluten from her diet and within a few days she was normal. That was several years ago and she still is doing fine. Our dog has anal gland issues and so far the pumpkin seems to be working well for that.
Kaopectate for diarrhea: I have two Chihuahuas and my little 5 lb. One (Boo boo) gets runny stools a lot. I give her a syringe full (the kind you squirt in the mouth) and just squirt it down her throat and she's usually better within a half hour. Works every time!
Boiled Chicken and Pumpkin Puree
My yorkie was having diahrrea for two days, she was energetic no fever and rubbing her butt on the ground. I read on this site about boiling chicken, no seasoning, rice and pumpkin purée. I gave my 4 month old yorkie one part chicken, two parts white rice and one part pumpkin purée. Within 24 hours my yorkie was having firm bowel movement.
Yay! Thank you for posting these great helps! We avoided poking and prodding at the vet and prescription that may or may not have worked.
Just make sure the canned pumpkin contains ONLY PUMPKIN. Do NOT get the pie filling!
Pumpkin works! I gave my beagle two tablespoons of pure canned pumpkin (not pie filler) and some rice for two days after he had 2 days of loose stools. After a day he was back to normal! Saved lots of money and time going to the vet.

I was desperate to help my egyptian hairless cat, who almost over night went down with chronic loose stools, blood loss, watery eyes complete lethargy. I took her to the vet, paid for medication and a week later I seriously was considering that I needed to face the fact that she was proberly not gonna survive. So I scanned the net for home remedies that might assist in at least getting the diarrehea under control and re-hydrating the cat. Low and behold I see postings re Pumpkin, its pumpkin season here in England and so I headed off to the supermarket. I blended up the pumpkin, added fresh carrot and coconut milk, offered it to the cat, she licked and licked at this mixture, she even meowed for more, this was the first food she had taken for days. I would go as far as to say within twelve hours that cat was improving, withing 18 hours she was passing normal stools. Anyone who is familiar with the hairless sphynx breed you will know that these cats are incredibly needy and if they could be carried around all day they would be in their element. My angel lay on a hot water bottle for 8 days, one dose of pumpkin and it was like a miracle. It could all be a coincidence, but something tells me there could be something in this, well ime convinced anyway and so I am making up my paste and freezing it. Now I add pumpkin regularly to her meat feed.
I want to let you know that giving a 1/2 teaspoon of pure pumkin from a can cured my cat of his diarhea. He had been suffering for about a week. I gave him the pumpkin twice a day mixed in his soft food. On the fourth day his stool returned to normal. I will continue to add to his food daily. I came back to your site for a natural flea cure so I am going to try the ACV. Will let you know how it turns out. Your site is excellent providing info that also gives the negetives letting me choose what I think is best for my pet. Thank you so much! And Bob (my cat) also thanks you!
I have used pumpkin (canned, plain, no sugar) for my cats' and dogs'diarrhea and constipation. It works great for both. I usually cook up some chicken and rice as well when it is diarrhea. As long as it is not giardia (fenbendazole- brand name Panacur or Safe-Guard from any feed store will take care of that) then I can usually clear it up within a day or two.
I can't tell you if it works or not on diarrhea, but old fashioned buttermilk is a classic remedy for digestive problems used by old-time doctors. And it has an added bonus! You can make some delicious creme fraiche with the leftover buttermilk and some heavy cream - mix together and leave on the counter overnight. Then chill for several hours before using. Creme fraiche is like sour cream, but doesn't separate when you cook with it - which is why the French love to cook with it! YUMMY! Plus you have more probiotics. Unfortunately, the big, well known company that sells premium dairy products like Creme Fraiche and Quark, etc, always pasteurizes their products - no probiotics, no ability to culture more batches. So make sure that the buttermilk you use has ACTIVE cultures, and you are all set for a healing and culinary adventure.
NEVER use KAOPECTATE, IMMODIUM, or PEPTOBISMOL for cats! See info below.
Kaopectate has also commonly been used in animals for the treatment of diarrhea, although it does not have FDA approval for use in animals. The old form of Kaopectate contained only kaolin and pectin while later forms contained attapulgite, all of which were very safe in animals due to the lack of systemic absorption. However, Kaopectate has recently developed a new formula that contains the drug bismuth subsalicylate, a drug that can be toxic to cats.
According to Pfizer Animal Health, this new form began shipping in December of 2002. This new drug added to Kaopectate is related to aspirin and a tablespoon of this new regular strength Kaopectate liquid contains the equivalent of 130 mg of aspirin and the extra strength contains the equivalent of 230mg of aspirin. Only a tablespoon of the extra strength Kaopectate would probably cause toxicosis in a 5 lb cat. Cats are very sensitive to the effects of these salicylate formulations as they are unable to metabolize and excrete them efficiently.
As many veterinarians over the years have recommended the use of Kaopectate for diarrhea in cats, many cat owners may not be aware of this change in formulation and may continue to give Kaopectate without consulting their veterinarian. This is an example of why it is so important to always consult your veterinarian before giving any medication, especially a human medication, as many medications work differently in animals than people. Another common example of this is acetaminophen, or Tylenol. This drug is highly toxic to cats and should not be used at any dosage in this species. Again, always consult you vet before administering any medication to an animal.
Pumpkin, White Rice
I woke up to a mess in my house two days ago from my 8 year old German Shepard mix. He had a case of the runs and it was everywhere! He never gets sick so I didn't think anything of it, just picked it up and went on with the day like normal. Well the next morning, same surprise. I checked out this website and low and behold saw the pumpkin and rice suggestion. Since I had both, I tried that. Gave him about 1/2 c of rice mixed with about 2 tablespoons of pure pumpkin puree. Added in some probiotics and 1/2 clove of crushed garlic for good measure. Repeated the rice and pumpkin only 3 more time throughout the day. This morning, NOTHING! I am so thankful, that I didn't have to spend another morning scrubbing poop. My dog feels much better, THANKS EVERYONE!!
Boiled Chicken and Pumpkin Puree
I have a two year old toy fox terrier that in March suddenly started bleeding everywhere. We rushed her to the vet and she was so low on platelets. Her platelet count was down to 21,000. Since that time she has been on prednisone and until recently we have been unable to keep her count up and even when it did go up, for some weird reason the vet said her white count kept staying elevated. We tried antibiotics to no avail. Marly gets her blood checked every two to three weeks. The last two times her platelets have been over 450,000!!
Suddenly yesterday out of no where she started with diarreah, then it was bloody diarreah and then pure blood. I am a nurse and was just stressing. I am currently out of work and thinking to myself, how am I going to afford another huge vet bill. The odd thing was, Marly did not act sick, her nose wasn't warm and she wasn't vomiting! I kept watching her and thinking, ok, she is acting happier and playing more than she has in months, just really odd. I needed to stop the diarreah.
I went on line and started reading and reading, somehow I came to this site. I read all the testimonials on the pumpkin, chicken and rice. I also read to not feed her for 12-24 hours to allow the intestine to calm down. I went to the store, I bought the chicken, cooked it in the crock pot overnight. I bought the canned pumpkin and immediately gave her a teaspoon full last night. Again this morning and again in the afternoon, she had no stools since last night. Then this afternoon I cooked some rice with the chicken and fed her small portions, about four and eight. I took her out before bed this evening and her stool was formed!! Very little blood in it and formed!! I gave her another teaspoon of pumpkin and will continue to keep her on the chicken and rice for another day or two but I am so grateful and happy!!! She is still playing and feeling great, actually better than we have seen her in six months so we are just wondering if she passed something that had been stuck possibly and that was keeping her white count up, we just don't know. All I know is she is feeling better and the diarreah is gone!!!! Thank you so much!!
A few months ago I came across this website when my parents Black Lab had a problem with his eye. I found a cure on here that worked perfectly and have been coming back ever since. So the other night when my Schnauzer/Scottish Terrier mix, Isabella, got an upset tummy, earth clinic was the first place I turned. She had gotten into the trash while we were out and ate some left over chicken I had thrown away. Since we don't give her human food, her stomach couldn't take it and by the next morning she had diarrhea. It lasted all day and I was hoping it would get better by the end of the day but it didn't. Finally, after her worst bathroom usage yet, I turned to earth clinic for a solution. The pumpkin remedy was rated very high so since I had a can in the house I tried it. I gave her a teaspoon full last night (she's 17 lbs) and by this morning she seems great! No more upset stomach and she's playful again. I'll be monitoring her for another 24 hours but the teaspoon of pumpkin seemed to of done the trick! Will definitely keep this in mind for the future and highly recommend it to anyone whose fur baby might have a sick tummy.
I am truly amazed at this remedy. My 50 lb, 8 year old mixed breed dog developed diarrhea from what I can only conclude was stress from an injury. For more than 2 weeks, I fed him a diet of rice, chicken or turkey, and even Kaopectate. But he never got past it. I read this article Monday morning - Labor Day, bought a can of pumpkin puree (Libby's) that day, and gave him approximately 3 tablespoons over the next few hours. He loved it, by the way. The next morning (Tuesday) I gave him 1 tbls with his breakfast. He did not have a bowel movement that morning, so after work when walking him he stopped to poop, and to my surprise - normal!! A somewhat glowing orange, but normal. I gave him a tbls with his dinner Tuesday, another with his breakfast Wednesday, and then nothing more after, and today (thursday) everything is still right as rain. I'm sold. I was only a matter of hours from calling the vet, who would have put him on some harsh meds, and charged me a lot more than the $1.29 I paid for the extra-large can of pumpkin. No more days and days of rice and chicken, kao, or any other remedies. As long as I'm fairly sure he does not have worms or some other sort of infection, pumpkin it is!! Thank you for this blog.
I have only heard about boiled chicken and rice being great for dogs with diarrhea. Ground beef is high in fat, so I think that can aggravate diarrhea. I don't suggest it. Chicken is much easier to digest.
carrots, carrots, carrots,
Literally, the best thing you could give you dog on a regular basis to keep your dogs bowel movements regular. It will elimiate diarrhea and your pet will never be constipated. I have been feeding my two dogs carrots with every meal and they love it too!
I feed mine dehydrated carrots because its the easiest thing for me to do with my busy life...
I have used 1 Tablespoon in 2 cups of water. It usually is pretty thin, and that is okay. The mixture can be shaken before using.
My dog started have loose stools six days ago, within the last two days it finally stopped. Now it's started again. My Vet told me to give her boiled white rice and boiled hamburger and a tablespoon of Metamucil. I'm going to try the pumpkin mixture for two days then it's back to the Vet. I hope this works.
My puppy had ingested some of my older dog's food and caused him to have diarrhea. I have used this site in the past for other remedies for my family and saw that there was a 'pet' tab. I mixed a heaping teaspoon of plain, natural pumpkin in his food and by later that night, he was back to normal.
