Natural Remedies for Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Dogs and Cats with Additional Diarrhea Support
Typically with inflammatory bowel disease in dogs and cats, your vet will likely recommend a change in diet (since the underlying cause may be related to food allergies). They may prescribe medications and possible nutritional therapy. Our IBD and Diarrhea Super Support Kit contains TumFlora and Plantaeris. These two formulations work together to promote gut health and effective digestion, as well as ease common symptoms of IBD in pets like diarrhea and cramping. Both natural IBD supplements can be taken alongside vet-prescribed medications (though we do recommend spacing the supplements and medication by 2 hours to be easier on your little one).
If you are interested in a gut-friendly nutrition plan, or inflammatory bowel disease diet recommendations for dogs, NHV’s in-house vet Dr. Amanda can work with you to create a personalized plan for your pet's unique needs.
How NHV Supplements Relieve Diarrhea and Irritable Bowel Disease in Pets
Pets may occasionally experience diarrhea or an upset tummy because maybe they ate too quickly, not enough, or something didn't quite sit right. But consistent runny poos are an alarm bell that something is going on with their digestive health.
TumFlora : contains ingredients like chamomile, licorice root, and ashwagandha, which have been used for centuries to help ease indigestion, muscle cramping and inflammation in the intestinal tract. This balanced IBD pet supplement also contains herbs like Indian gooseberry and fennel seed which may help reduce nausea and encourage healthy movement through the bowels. TumFlora also helps naturally balance intestinal gut flora and can be used alongside probiotics for dogs or cats.
Plantaeris: contains a blend of herbs that work gently and quickly to help alleviate diarrhea and loose stools. Herbs like barberry and bayberry contain soothing properties to help control diarrhea-causing bacteria and control infection. This blend is well-balanced with ingredients like myrrh, and thyme, which may help to expel gas and may promote healing and relief for overall digestive discomfort.
Holistic Support For your Pet’s GI Tract Health
When your furkiddo has IBD, inflammatory cells invade the gastrointestinal tract of your pet, which encompasses the stomach, small, and large intestine. Once inflammatory cells start taking over the GI tract, the intestinal wall may thicken over time and disrupt the absorption and movement of food. It’s unclear what may cause IBD in dogs, cats or other pets, but some potential causes are food allergies, parasites, and autoimmune conditions. A fairly common symptom of IBD in dogs and cats is diarrhea because the GI tract is damaged, so food may not be fully digested or eliminated. If we are to use a simple analogy, pets with inflammatory bowel disease can have diarrhea that may range from a soft-serve ice cream consistency to pretty much like clear water.
Having a healthy pet means the world to us at NHV. Providing your furkiddo with natural support for their digestion and gastrointestinal tract can help improve their quality of life and promote vitality! Apart from adding supplements to their daily care plan, learn more about what you can do to help your pet with IBD here.
