Description

Like humans, Inflammatory or Irritable Bowel Disease, also known as IBD, is a common gastrointestinal problem in dogs. When your furbaby has IBD, inflammatory cells within their body begin to invade the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The stomach, small intestine, and large intestine are all part of the GI tract. Once inflammatory cells start to take over the GI tract, a thickening of the intestinal wall can occur, upsetting daily functions like absorption and the movement of food (peristalsis). There is no clear cause for IBD in dogs, but studies show that genetic and external factors can predispose your pet to have IBD. Some additional contributing factors may be chronic irritation of the intestines caused by constant vomiting and diarrhea, food allergies, parasites, and autoimmune disorders.

How TumFlora Supports GI Tract Health

TumFlora is a natural herbal vet formulation designed to help improve intestinal flora. In addition to helping improve intestinal flora, and helping with inflammation of the digestive tract, TumFlora contains herbs that are highly nutritious like slippery elm to further help your furbaby heal. Slippery elm is high in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, B complex, C, K, calcium, magnesium and sodium. The gentle defense against microorganisms and anti-fungal properties of herbs like oregon grape aid the body to fight off infections. Finally, herbs like fennel and chamomile help to relieve stomach cramps and indigestion and help with overall discomfort.

This soothing liquid formulation is easy to administer and helps maintain a healthy gut. In addition to helping IBD in dogs, TumFlora is also useful for pets suffering from food allergies, gastrointestinal ulcers and bacterial, gut infections. TumFlora is also a great addition to your pet’s daily regimen as a proactive approach for a healthy gut.

Symptoms of IBD in dogs

Dogs will occasionally vomit or have diarrhea because something doesn’t sit right with their tummies, or maybe they ate too much or too little that day. But if your furkiddo begins to vomit and their poops are runny on a regular basis then it could be IBD. Keep your eye out for these additional symptoms:

  • Weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Straining to defecate
  • Lethargy

Typically your vet will do a full-body exam, check your dog’s history, conduct a blood panel, take a stool sample, and possibly opt for x-rays and/or an ultrasound. IBD in dogs can be tough to diagnose because your vet will have to check for a variety of conditions as well as vital organ functions before they can confirm diagnosis. Other health conditions that have similar symptoms to IBD are GI parasites, kidney or liver disease, pancreatitis, cancer, or foreign substances and objects in the intestines. To confirm IBD, your vet may eventually conduct a biopsy on your pup's stomach and/or intestinal tract.

Additional Holistic Support for Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Dogs

A combination of vet-prescribed medication and nutritional therapy is often recommended to alleviate symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease. If your pet is prone to inflammatory bowel disease in dogs, changing your dog’s diet to a more gut-friendly one is recommended.

FAQ

What do you feed a dog with IBD?

For a dog with IBD, changing their diet to a hypoallergenic diet or an elimination diet with a source of protein that they are not familiar with could work well since the underlying cause may be related to food allergies. In order for your dog to get their proper nutrients, a hypoallergenic or elimination diet should only be done with the guidance of a veterinary professional.

If you would like a home-cooked nutrition plan, our in-house veterinarian Dr. Amanda can formulate a plan specific to your pet’s health requirements.

How do I know if my dog has IBD?

IBD/IBS in dogs may be challenging to diagnose because the diagnosis process is one of “a process of elimination”. Your vet must rule out many other conditions first. Health problems that have similar symptoms to IBD are GI parasitic infections, kidney or liver disease, pancreatitis, cancer, or foreign substances in the intestines.

Typical symptoms are:

  • Frequent diarrhea
  • Weight loss
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Straining to defecate
  • Lethargy

How do they test for IBD in dogs?

To test for IBD, your vet will likely do a full-body exam, check their medical history, conduct a blood panel, take a stool sample, and possibly opt for x-rays and/or an ultrasound. The most accurate way to confirm a diagnosis for IBD may be invasive and may involve surgery, an endoscopy, and/or FNA guided ultrasound in order to collect a tissue sample from their intestines or stomach. In many cases, this is not possible so typically a veterinarian will start your pet on a treatment plan for IBD rather than opting for surgery.

Is IBD in dogs life-threatening?

Depending on how advanced the IBD is and what the underlying causes are, in rare cases, some dogs have managed to completely recover. However, for the majority of pups, this is a lifelong condition and if left untreated, IBD can be life-threatening.
