Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Supporting Dogs Healing From Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome (also known as inflammatory bowel disease) is a group of digestive system diseases identified by persistent inflammation. With no known cause, it is believed to be aggravated by bacteria, parasites, stress, food, and allergies. Because IBS tends to come and go over time, it is difficult to diagnose. This condition is rarely cured, but changes in the diet have been shown to help reduce the symptoms.
Symptoms of IBS in Dogs
There is a range of symptoms that may occur, and a few of them include the following:
- Frequent passing of small feces and mucous
- Weight loss
- Abdominal pain
At NHV, we have IBS supplements for dogs including an Inflammatory Bowel Disease Comfort Kit with everything you need that is safe to be given along with any vet prescribed medications.
Types of Dogs Most Affected by IBS

- Cocker Spaniels
- German Shepherds
- Yorkshire Terriers
Additional Support Tips
To help prevent dehydration, always have a full bowl of fresh water available at all times, and talk to your vet about treatment options including dietary IBS supplements for dogs.
Depending on the aggravating source, there are herbal supplements that can be used in conjunction with a vet’s recommended treatment for IBS in dogs.
- If the aggravating source is from bacteria, food or allergies, try a combination of NHV’s Stimmune and Plantaeris.
- If the aggravating source is stress-related, try a combination of NHV’s Lesstress, which calms agitated dogs as well as reducing anxiety caused by separation, and Plantaeris.
- If the aggravating source is parasites, try a combination of NHV’s Inulin-PK which is a vet-formulated natural parasite cleanser and dewormer, and Plantaeris.
