Tips for avoiding digestive upsets in dogs and cats


Pets should be encouraged to consume more fresh water and this should be presented in a way that your pet prefers whist having access to a constant supply. The aim of increasing water intake is to prevent dehydration


Your Vet will be able to offer the best advice on your Pet’s specific requirements. A bland diet that is easily digestible, such as boneless cooked chicken breast and white rice is advisable. A specialised diet for gastrointestinal imbalance maybe beneficial with small amounts of food given several times a day. 

Outside access 

To avoid accidents within the house it is better to give your pet easy access to the outside or take them out frequently. However it is important to monitor your pets toilet activities and general demeanour. Be sure to keep a close watch on them and not let them stray too far.
