Yellow poop and gas: The request could not be satisfied


Yellow Poop: 7 Possible Causes & What To Do

It is relatively common for poop to become yellow, but this can be because of several different types of problems, from an intestinal infection to a high-fat diet.

As it can have several causes, after identifying the presence of yellowish stools, it is very important to confirm other characteristics, such as shape and smell, to help the doctor diagnose it more easily.

Below are some of the main causes for yellow poop:

1. High-fat diet

Eating too much fat, such as in fried food, processed products or cured sausages, makes digestion more difficult and speeds up intestinal transit, especially in people who normally have a balanced diet. In these cases, in addition to the stools turning yellow, they may also become more watery because of how quickly they pass through the intestine.

What to do: cut down on fats and processed products, as this will help to regulate the color of the stools. This should get better after 2 or 3 days, however, if the problem persists, other causes should be looked into.

2. Intestinal infection

Another common cause of yellowish stools is an intestinal infection, however, it is also common for other symptoms to appear, such as abdominal pain and diarrhea. 

In these cases, it is common for poop to appear yellowish because the intestine is inflamed by the infection and so fails to properly absorb the fat from the food. The main cause of this problem is the E. coli bacteria, which can be ingested in undercooked meat and contaminated foods.

What to do: drink plenty of water and eat foods that are easy to digest, such as fruit, boiled white rice, fish and white meats, avoiding red meat as well as fried and processed foods.

3. Liver or gallbladder problems

Diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis or gallstones cause bile, which is the substance responsible for helping in the digestion of fats, to reach the intestine in smaller amounts. In addition to changing the color of the stools, these diseases may also cause abdominal pain and yellowing of the eyes and skin.

What to do: if these symptoms appear, go to a GP or gastroenterologist to confirm the diagnosis and start the appropriate treatment.

4. Pancreas problems

Changes in the pancreas can cause poor digestion, turning poop whitish or yellowish, as well as causing them to float and look foamy. The main problems that affect this organ are pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, cystic fibrosis or obstruction of the pancreatic canal.

Problems in the pancreas can also cause abdominal pain, dark urine, poor digestion, nausea and weight loss. 

What to do: If these changes occur, especially if accompanied by abdominal pain, nausea and loss of appetite, go to a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and start appropriate treatment.

5. Giardiasis

Giardiasis is an intestinal disease caused by the Giardia parasite and can cause symptoms such as explosive and watery diarrhea with foul-smelling poop, nausea, headache, dehydration and weight loss.

What to do: If these symptoms appear, go to a doctor, pediatrician or gastroenterologist for a stools test to confirm the presence of this parasite in the intestine and start appropriate treatment, which is usually done with antibiotics.

6. Celiac disease

Celiac disease is a severe intolerance to gluten that causes inflammation and intestinal malabsorption when foods are eaten containing wheat, rye, or barley. These foods cause both the poop to move faster through the intestines and more fat in the stools, turning them yellowish. 

People with celiac disease usually show improvement in their symptoms when they eat a gluten-free diet.

What to do: It is important to see a gastroenterologist to confirm the diagnosis of the disease and start a gluten-free diet.

7. Use of medication

Weight loss medication, such as Xenical or Biofit, works by reducing the absorption of fat in the intestine and may also cause changes in the color of the stools and increase intestinal transit.

What to do:  If any of these drugs are being taken, see the doctor who prescribed them for guidance on the correct use and possible side effects, or to switch them for another medication.

When to go to the doctor

In most cases, yellow poop appear after eating meals high in fat and generally improve in less than a week. Go to a doctor, however, if it takes more than a week to disappear or if other symptoms appear, such as fever, abdominal pain, weight loss, bloated belly or blood in your stools.

What are your stools made of?

Stools are mostly made up of water and, to a lesser extent, bacteria from the intestinal flora, fluids that help digest food, such as bile, and food that hasn’t been digested or absorbed, such as fibers, grains, and seeds.

So, dietary changes, the use of medications or some intestinal problems may cause poor digestion, causing the fat in the diet not to be absorbed and making the stools yellow.

Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer | Columbia University Department of Surgery

Overview | Causes | Symptoms | Genetics | Diagnosis | Staging | Treatment | Prognosis | Coping

Pancreatic cancer is known as a “silent disease” because identifiable symptoms are not usually present in the early stages of the disease. Many symptoms of pancreatic cancer are mild at first, so patients may often be unaware of the potential seriousness of them. Due in large part to the position of the pancreas deep in the abdomen, a pancreatic tumor can grow for years before causing pressure, pain, or other signs of illness. This can make it difficult for a patient or doctor to recognize a problem.

There are several symptoms commonly associated with pancreatic cancer. However, other medical conditions can cause these, or similar symptoms. Having one or any combination of these symptoms does not always mean you have pancreatic cancer. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should consult your doctor to discuss possible diagnoses. 


Jaundice is identified primarily by your skin and the white of your eyes becoming yellow or greenish yellow. Dark urine and light or clay-colored stools can also be associated with jaundice. 

Jaundice occurs when bilirubin, a component of bile, builds up in your blood. Bilirubin is created in the liver as a breakdown product of worn-out red blood cells and is typically eliminated from the body when bile is released from the gallbladder. Bile travels from the gallbladder through the common bile duct and passes through the pancreas just before emptying into the duodenum. However, when the bile duct becomes blocked – for any reason – jaundice can occur. 

Deep-felt itching often accompanies obstructive jaundice. This is a condition known as pruritis. 

In Pancreatic Cancer: Jaundice typically occurs in pancreatic cancer when a tumor in the head of the pancreas first narrows, then obstructs the common bile duct, blocking the flow of bile.

Other Causes: Gallstones, which are primarily made up of cholesterol, are a common cause of jaundice. Gallstones can also block the bile duct. Other causes of jaundice that are not obstructive include liver diseases like hepatitis and cirrhosis, and other conditions that cause red blood cells to break down too quickly.  

Upper Abdominal Pain

In Pancreatic Cancer: Abdominal pain is a common symptom. It often radiates to the middle or upper back and worsens after eating or when lying down. Upper abdominal pain commonly occurs with advanced pancreatic cancer. Pain can occur when a tumor, typically originating in the body or the tail of the pancreas, grows to put pressure on surrounding abdominal organs or invades surrounding nerves. 

Other Causes: Many other conditions can cause upper abdominal pain. If you are experiencing pain in your abdomen, discuss your symptoms carefully with your doctor.

Digestive Difficulties

In Pancreatic Cancer: Digestive difficulties including indigestion, nausea, weight loss, a poor appetite, and diarrhea, can arise as a result of pressure from a pancreatic cyst or tumor on the stomach or the small intestine that causes a block in the digestive tract. When a tumor grows, it can wrap around the far end of the stomach, causing a partial block. This can cause nausea, vomiting, and pain which may worsen after eating. 

Diarrhea results when the nutrients in food are not absorbed properly. When this occurs, stool can become loose, watery, oily and foul-smelling. Pancreatic enzymes are responsible for digesting fatty foods. If a tumor blocks the pancreatic duct, insufficient pancreatic juices in the intestines can lead to poor absorption and diarrhea, as the undigested food passes quickly through the digestive tract. If this happens, stool may float due to the higher fat content, appear bulky, greasy, and unusually pale. 

Other Causes: Stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea can be caused by a number of conditions. You should consult your physician if you are experiencing these symptoms. Oily stools can also be caused by autoimmune diseases such as celiac disease, where absorption in the intestines is affected. 

Unexplained Weight Loss

This is a common symptom in many cancers. It is often accompanied by general loss of appetite and fatigue. The weight loss can be caused by cancerous cells that deprive healthy cells of required nutrients. 

In Pancreatic Cancer: Weight loss due to pancreatic cancer can be caused by a lack of functional pancreatic enzymes, as discussed above under digestive difficulties. However, there are no distinguishing characteristics associated with pancreatic cancer when the weight loss is due to malignant cancer cells monopolizing the body’s nutrients. 

Other Causes: Unexplained weight loss can also be caused by some infections or parasites in the digestive tract.


Ascites is a condition in which excessive fluid builds up in the abdominal cavity causing swelling and distention of the belly. The abdominal cavity is created by the space between your organs and the abdominal wall and is surrounded by a lining called the peritoneum. In severe cases of ascites, it is possible to retain gallons of fluid in your abdominal cavity. Ascites may cause significant pain and difficulty breathing. If you suffer from ascites, your doctor may give you diuretics, or water pills, to slow down the fluid build up. In severe cases, the fluid can be drained during a procedure called paracentesis. 

In Pancreatic Cancer: Ascites may occur at any stage of pancreatic cancer, but is typically associated with advanced metastatic pancreatic cancer. If the cancer spreads to the peritoneum, it can cause irritation and cause fluid to build up. 

Other Causes: Pancreatic ascites can also occur if a cyst or a pseudocyst in the pancreas bursts, allowing the pancreatic juices to seep into the abdominal cavity. However, cirrhosis of the liver, and specifically alcoholic cirrhosis, is the most common cause for ascites. Cirrhosis causes a series of changes in the kidneys that prevents the body from getting rid of excess water-retaining sodium.

Sudden Onset Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition that is marked by high blood sugar and glucose intolerance. It occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin to properly metabolize, or break down, glucose in the system, or when the body cannot properly use existing insulin. Since insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas, the development of diabetes is linked to problems in the pancreas. 

In Pancreatic Cancer: Sudden onset of diabetes in people with normal body mass index is often a warning sign of pancreatic abnormalities and can be a symptom of pancreatic cancer. Additionally, when well-controlled diabetes suddenly becomes brittle or poorly controlled, this change can also be a warning sign for pancreatic cancer. 

Other Causes: Individuals who are overweight and have a high body mass index often develop diabetes, especially when they get older. This is not uncommon and is linked to normal metabolic changes in the body.

Bright Yellow Watery Diarrhea: 6 Causes Simplified by a Gut Doctor – Oh My Gut


4- Irritable bowel syndrome.


Irritable bowel syndrome is another common under-diagnosed disease. It nearly affects 20 to 15% of the population. 

Irritable bowel syndrome is characterized by chronic abdominal pain or cramps that are related to defecation, change in stool frequency or change in stool form.

IBS has 4 types: IBS-Diarrhea predominant, IBS-Constipation predominant, IBS-Mixed type, and IBS-Unclassified. 

With IBS (especially the diarrhea-predominant type), it is common to experience bright yellow stool with IBS. as an IBS flare-up with yellow diarrhea.

Food triggers such as FODMAPs and alcohol can worsen your IBS and cause bright yellow watery diarrhea.

Suspect IBS if you have recurrent abdominal cramps (at least once per week) for the past 3 months associated with defecation or stool changes. 

To learn more, see how is IBS diagnosed

It is worth mentioning that stress and anxiety can trigger IBS. if you always get bright yellow watery diarrhea in stressful conditions, then you have to suspect IBS.

this study illustrates that stress and anxiety are far more common among people with IBS.

Image Data Reference


5- Drugs causing yellow & watery diarrhea.


More than 700 drugs are linked to diarrhea (reference). Diarrhea can be watery and bright yellow or can become severe with bloody stool. The most common causes of watery yellow diarrhea are laxative abuse and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.


A] Laxative abuse:


Laxative causes watery yellow diarrhea either by increasing motility (contractions) of your intestine or by drawing water into your gut.

Also, magnesium-containing laxatives or supplements can have laxative effects and can cause diarrhea.

Abuse or large doses of laxatives can be problematic. 

Common laxative causing watery diarrhea:

  • Senna.
  • Docusate sodium.
  • Magnesium oral solution and magnesium-containing antacids.

If you get bright yellow water diarrhea after using a laxative or an antacid for heartburn, please stop the laxative. Contact your doctor if diarrhea doesn’t improve.

Learn more about laxative abuse.


B] Antibiotic-associated diarrhea.


Diarrhea that occurs after taking antibiotics to treat any type of bacterial infection is called antibiotic-associated diarrhea.  

Antibiotic-associated diarrhea can range from mild self-limiting loose stool or diarrhea (which can be watery and bright yellow) to severe forms with bloody diarrhea (severe colitis).

Common antibiotics causing diarrhea:

  • Penicillins such as ampicillin and amoxicillin.
  • Clindamycin
  • Cephalosporins: such as cefpodoxime, cephalexin.

Suspect antibiotic-associated diarrhea if:

  • The onset of diarrhea after taking antibiotics.
  • Symptoms other than diarrhea include crampy abdominal pain, fever, and abdominal tenderness.
  • Have a history of antibiotic-associated diarrhea before.
  • Using more than one antibiotic at the same time.
  • Taking antibiotics for long periods.


C] Other drugs causing yellow or watery diarrhea.


Many drugs other than laxatives and antibiotics can cause yellow or watery diarrhea. The most common types include:

  • Metformin: a common anti-diabetic drug.
  • Chemotherapy: in people with cancer.
  • Immunosuppressive drugs: such as mycophenolate. Used in people with immunological diseases such as systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, and others.
  • Drugs used to treat heartburn, GERD, and gastritis (proton Pump inhibitors and h3 blockers): as esomeprazole (Nexium ®), Pantoprazole (Protonix ®), Omeprazole (Prilosec ®), and ranitidine (Zantac ®).

This is NOT a complete list of drugs causing diarrhea. Learn more here and here.

Contact your doctor to evaluate if it is necessary to stop the antibiotic and if there is any treatment for your diarrhea.


6- Other medical conditions (rare, chronic, associated with other symptoms).


All the below conditions can cause bright yellow watery diarrhea. But it is relatively rare, and usually associated with other prominent symptoms. Also, diarrhea from these conditions is always prolonged or recurrent over long periods.


Inflammatory bowel disease:


Inflammatory bowel disorders include Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The condition is usually more severe and diarrhea is prolonged. You may find blood or mucus with diarrhea. also, weight loss and fever may occur.


Gallbladder diseases.


Inflammation (cholecystitis) or removal of your gallbladder can lead to bright yellow watery diarrhea especially after eating fatty foods.


Celiac disease.


Celiac disease occurs due to intolerance to gluten protein present in wheat and barley. Usually, it is a chronic condition, associated with watery diarrhea and malabsorption related to the ingestion of wheat-based foods. It can be associated with anemia, weight loss, and abdominal pain.


Bile acid diarrhea: 


Another less common condition can lead to bright yellow water diarrhea. With bile acid diarrhea, the following occurs: (reference)

  • Your intestine cannot normally reabsorb or handle the bile secreted by your liver and gallbladder.  
  • Bile acid present inside your intestine and colon traps water and causes bright yellow water diarrhea.

Suspect bile acid diarrhea if you have:

  • Diarrhea: after eating fatty foods or even chronic diarrhea at any time (not only after meals).
  • A special feature of diarrhea is that you may have severe urgency, the risk of stool leakage may occur especially in older ages.
  • It is usually a watery type of diarrhea, more frequent in obese people.
  • Bloating, indigestion may be present.

Anxiety as the Cause of Yellow Stool

Those with anxiety are prone to health concerns. So it’s no wonder that many people worry when they see that their stool has changed color. It’s well-known that human feces can be one of the first indicators of a health disorder, so those that see that their stool has changed color often become immediately concerned.

There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that no one can diagnose the cause of your stool color without looking at it directly and testing your blood for any common health issues. Yellow stool is linked to many common health conditions, such as pancreatic failure, cirrhosis, digestion issues, and a myriad of other conditions. It is important to see a doctor to rule out these issues. 

Yet the color of your stool can also be affected by anxiety. Yellow stool may be due to your mental health. 

Yellow Feces and Related Anxiety

Yellow stool could represent a serious health problem. Or it could have a cause that is generally harmless – something that just accelerated your digestive system temporarily. Some people have different colored stool at random without any indication that something is wrong. Foods and medications can change stool color as well. 

Only a doctor can diagnose the cause of any stool color change. But if they rule out other medical issues, it is possible that your yellow stool may be linked to anxiety.

How Anxiety Causes Yellow Stool

Anxiety may contribute to yellow stool color in a variety of ways. What yellow stool traditionally means is that food passed through your digestive tract too quickly. Yellow is often the color of diarrhea, because diarrhea often (although not always) implies that the digestive system was “too quick” in passing the food through.

The yellow color itself is due to a combination of bilirubin (a chemical inside the body created by the liver) and fat. Undigested fat and bilirubin that hasn’t been adequately altered through the natural digestive process both increase the risk of feces becoming a type of yellow or yellowish green. 

Bilirubin colors your urine and your bruises as well, and is responsible for the brown pigment in stool – but only after it is converted to stercoblin – a process that doesn’t occur fully if food passes through the digestive system too quickly.

Numerous studies have shown that those with anxiety and stress suffer from faster intestinal transit.

The most likely cause is the distribution of fluids during anxiety, and the activation of the fight or flight response. It’s likely that stress also changes metabolism and hormone balance in a way that makes the intensities function erratically. In addition, studies have shown that the part of the brain that controls digestion slows down during anxiety, so that mental resources can be used elsewhere.

Finally, yellow stool has been linked to alcohol use and alcoholism. Some of those with anxiety try to self-medicate with alcohol to relieve the symptoms. Though alcohol is the primary cause of yellow stool in these situations, anxiety still plays a contributory role. 

All of these problems will speed up digestion and possibly lead to yellow stool.

Anxiety and IBS

Anxiety is also a contributing factor – and possibly even a cause – of irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. IBS is a bowel disorder that causes diarrhea, pain, and discomfort during times of stress. IBS is also known to cause yellow stool. It is considered a separate issue from anxiety, but the two have been linked in many studies and many of those with IBS appear to have developed some type of anxiety disorder.

How to Treat Yellow Stool From Anxiety

Assuming you’ve been to the doctor and ruled out any health issues, the reality is that yellow stool that only occurs once, or rarely, may not require any treatment. If you have yellow stool often, it may be a good idea to drink more water and consider healthier foods or supplementation to ensure that you’re getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals. 

Those that find that the color of their stool causes them too much distress can try eating more whole grains and fiber with fewer fats in their diet, as fat may be one of the factors that causes stool to become yellow. Cutting out alcohol and getting a full night’s rest also appears to have an effect on stool color as well.

But if your doctor has ruled out most other health issues, you may want to explore treating your anxiety.  

Once you begin to manage anxiety, you should be able to start seeing a difference with your yellow stool. 

To treat anxiety, look into the most common and effective mental health treatments, such as:

  • Therapy and Counseling
  • Medications
  • Self-Help
  • Lifestyle Changes and Exercise

Begin researching anxiety treatments, and find the ones that will work best for you and what you’re struggling with. That is the best way to address anxiety related yellow stool.   


Yellow stool is caused by a buildup of bilirubin and fast, which typically occurs when food and waste pass through the system too quickly. Those with stress, sleep loss, and similar anxiety-related problems often suffer from faster intestinal transmit. Dietary changes could have a small benefit, but overall the only way to stop yellow stool is to address anxiety.

5 Common Stomach Problems That Could Signal Serious Health Issues

All of us get a little gassy or stopped up from time to time or feel the burn after a giant Mexican dinner. But there’s a point when these symptoms aren’t normal and could even be a sign of something more serious. “An off day here or there, especially if your schedule, diet, or lifestyle has changed, is fine. But if there is a sudden change or one that persists without clear explanation, it’s a good idea to get a gastroenterologist involved,” says James F. Marion, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Gastroenterology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Here’s what to look out for with some of the most common stomach problems, what it could mean, and when to see a doc.

Christine Frapech

If you’ve never had heartburn before (other than after a spicy or super-sized meal) and you’re suddenly experiencing burning on the regular without a specific trigger, it’s time to call your doctor—especially if you have other symptoms like weight loss, the feeling that food is getting stuck in your throat, or blood in your stool. You could be one of the estimated 20 percent of people, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition where stomach acid causes inflammation and narrowing of the esophagus, says Marion. Since heartburn can lead to serious complications including ulcers and asthma, you shouldn’t suffer in silence—the right medications usually nix symptoms.

Some people also confuse heartburn with chest pain, since the burn often hits between your chest and abdomen. “Once people hit their forties, they take it more seriously. Severe heartburn can feel like angina, and it can be hard to distinguish the two,” says Marion. That’s why it’s all the more important to see your doc and get checked if you’re experiencing what feels like an unusual new bout of heartburn.

Abdominal pain can be tough to pinpoint. “Even though your appendix is in your lower right abdomen, a lot of people have pain in their belly button when they have appendicitis,” says Marion. Problems with your gallbladder, located just below your liver in the middle of your abdomen, can give you pain in your upper abdomen or even your back. Recurring abdominal pain could also be a sign of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which, according to the American College of Gastroenterology, is thought to affect 10 to 15 percent of Americans, although only 5 to 7 percent get diagnosed. Symptoms, which often include gas, diarrhea, and/or constipation, happen at least three times a month for three months or have been ongoing for at least six months.

When to talk to your doc depends on how long you’ve been feeling discomfort and how sharp the pain is. “If it’s relatively new and not something you can associate with any change in your diet or lifestyle, if it’s keeping you from doing your daily activities and especially if associated with red-flag symptoms (more on that below), you should see your doctor after a couple of days,” says Marion. Also check in if you have regular, ongoing pain, even if it passes—there’s often something your doc can do about it.

“Being constipated is not alarming, and there’s no amount of bowel movements that’s ‘normal,’” says Jennifer Katz, M.D., Attending Physician at the Montefiore Medical Center Department of Gastroenterology in New York, NY. In fact, getting stopped up is one of the most common gastrointestinal problems, affecting an estimated 42 million Americans, according to the National Institutes of Health. Usually, constipation—taking a poop less than three times per week or having incomplete bowel movements—is caused by not getting enough fiber or a change in your routine or diet.

That said, constipation can sometimes be a sign of something more ominous, says Katz, which might include a thyroid problem, scarring or structuring from injury to the lining of the colon, IBS, or side effects from medications. If your BMs are interfering with the things you like to do, you’re constantly running to the toilet to take a BM in installments, your stool is harder and requires straining, or you’re using laxatives all the time to try and get things going, make an appointment, says Marion.

“There are an amazing number of people who suffer in silence because they’re reluctant to bring it up with their doc,” says Marion. “There are many things we can do, like dietary changes or medications.”

Watch a hot doc explain how you can help a thyroid disorder:

Christine Frapech

Acute diarrhea, which lasts less than four weeks, is super common, with about 179 million cases happening every year, according to the NIH; it can be caused by viral or bacterial infections, a parasite, or even eating too many sorbitol-containing foods (commonly found in sugar-free gum, sorbitol is also a common cause of gas). Since diarrhea can lead to severe dehydration fast, it’s important to see a doc if you have the runs with any of the following symptoms: loose stools for more than two days; a fever over 102 degrees F; frequent vomiting; six or more stools in 24 hours; severe pain in the abdomen or rectum; black, tarry, or blood/pus-containing stools; or symptoms of dehydration (thirst, sunken eyes, dark pee, peeing less than usual).

Chronic diarrhea, which happens on-and-off for at least one month, is less common. It could be caused by a thyroid issue, injury to the colon, medication side effects, a long-standing infection, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, IBS, celiac disease, or (rarely, and usually in older people) even cancer—although these tend to go hand-in-hand with red-flag symptoms. Or it might be a food allergy or intolerance to cow’s milk, soy, cereal grains, eggs, or seafood. The only way to know for sure is to talk to a doc. “We want to find out exactly what’s happening so we can treat problem from the source,” says Marion.

Literally everyone gets gas—but some toot more than others. Maybe you’ve always been a little gassy for as long as you can remember, or maybe you rarely let one loose but have been super bloated for a week. If that discomfort keeps you from your normal routines, a good nutritionist and/or a gastroenterologist can help. It could be an anatomic problem like a stricture; inflammation related to IBS, Chrohn’s, or colitis; or a functional issue with what Marion calls the “choreography or mobility of your bowel.” You could even have recently developed a food allergy like lactose intolerance, which tends to crop up after the age of 30, celiac disease, or a bacterial overgrowth, adds Katz.

No matter the cause, it’s time to see your doctor—especially if gas is accompanied by signs like bleeding, weight loss, or recurrent vomiting—to get tests to pinpoint the cause and medication to treat it if necessary. A dietitian may also want to check your diet to help you figure out if you should cut certain foods that might be making you balloon.

If any of your stomach problems are accompanied by the following symptoms, be sure to check in with your doctor right away:

Unexplained weight loss can be a sign of lots of conditions that need attention (like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, ulcers, depression, or, rarely, cancer). Other things to keep an eye on: fever, vomiting, no appetite or a change in appetite, blood in your stool or the feeling that food is getting stuck in your throat. “These are all cases where you’ll want to get an explanation. Your doctor will give you a more invasive workup to get at the source of the problem,” says Marion.

Dog Diarrhea: Causes and Treatment | Video, Article and Infographic


Click to jump to Dog Stool Infographic

There are few things that will bring an animal into the vet quite as quickly as a bout of diarrhea. For most small animal veterinarians, it is something we see on a daily basis. Sometimes, dog diarrhea cases are easy with quick fixes. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Chronic or extensive dog diarrhea cases can be frustrating for both the pet parent and the doctor because they are expensive and difficult to understand.

This article will break down the causes, diagnostics, and treatments for dog diarrhea into simpler terms.

Jump to a section here:

In a very broad definition, diarrhea is caused by the malfunction of the gastrointestinal tract. The list of all the causes of diarrhea is extensive. Here are just a few examples:

  • Vascular: Infarction (a clot blocking blood flow to a section of the intestine), shock such as from heatstroke, or an allergic reaction can cause lack of blood flow to the GI tract
  • Infectious: Viral (Parvo, distemper, coronavirus (NOT COVID-19)), anthelmintic parasites (roundworm, hookworm, whipworm), protozoal parasites (giardia, coccidia), bacterial (clostridium, leptospirosis, salmonella, E.coli, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO))
  • Trauma: Torsion or twisting of the GI tract, a penetrating wound, being hit by a car, a foreign body, caustic toxin exposure (bleach, etc.), NSAID toxicity, and ulceration
  • Autoimmune: Inflammatory bowel disease (there are many more specific diagnoses under this broad category), lymphangiectasia
  • Metabolic: Renal (kidney) disease, hyperthyroidism, hypoadrenocorticism or Addison’s disease, hepatitis/hepatopathy, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI)
  • Iatrogenic (doctor speak for you did it yourself): Dietary indiscretion, stress induced, chocolate toxicity, overfeeding—especially in puppies
  • Inflammatory: Pancreatitis, hemorrhagic gastroenteritis
  • Neoplasia: lymphosarcoma, focal neoplasia (primary vs. metastatic)

What Kind of Human Foods Can Cause Diarrhea?

We’ve all done it—fed our dogs a little bit off our plate or topped the bowl of kibble with a little something yummy. I know the temptation is real, and that sweet face asking for more is tempting, but just say no!

Our pets’ digestive systems are very different from our own. In general, dogs and cats are not well equipped to digest large volumes of fat, or even any amounts that are in excess of whatever their normal is.

Treats that are high in salt and sugar can lead to diarrhea by simple osmosis—pulling water into the gastrointestinal tract as it is digested. If you are going to feed your pet “human food,” stick with safe fruits and vegetables such as carrots, green beans, or apples (without seeds).

When attempting to narrow down our list of causes, we break dog diarrhea down into two major categories: large-bowel and small-bowel diarrhea.

Large-Bowel Diarrhea

Large-bowel diarrhea, or diarrhea arising from the large intestine or colon, is characterized by:

Pet parents are often very concerned when they see blood in their dog’s stool. While this is certainly a sign of inflammation and a good time to come to the vet, a small amount of blood is often par for the course when dealing with a large-bowel diarrhea.

Here’s why. The job of the colon is two-fold:

Since the colon needs to pull water out of the poop, blood vessels are very close to the surface and easily break with straining and inflammation. Likewise, there are mucous glands in the colon to help lubricate stools for easy passage.

When there is inflammation, they will overproduce their mucous coating. When the colon isn’t working right, stools can also be very watery.

If there is a large volume of blood noted in the stools (the stool is all blood or looks like raspberry jam), this is more concerning and should be addressed with more urgency.

Small-Bowel Diarrhea

Small-bowel diarrhea or diarrhea arising from the small intestine is characterized by:

  • Large, goopy poops produced at normal frequency

  • Stool is often fatty and frothy

  • Stool rarely has red blood or mucous

  • There is typically no straining involved

The job of the small intestine is absorption of nutrients. When there is inflammation or dysfunction, there can be a lack of absorption, resulting in fatty stools.

We can also see signs of malnutrition in dogs with small-bowel diarrhea:

  • Weight loss

  • Poor hair coat

  • Ravenous appetite

Acute Diarrhea in Dogs

Some episodes of dog diarrhea can be easily cleared up. An acute onset of diarrhea can often resolve on its own with minimal intervention from you.

When your dog’s diarrhea has lasted for 48 hours or more, or you see blood in the stool, or your pet has additional symptoms (vomiting or inappetence), it is time to visit the vet.

Chronic Diarrhea in Dogs

Chronic diarrhea is persistent despite initial treatment or is recurrent in nature.

Causes include (but are not limited to):

  • Parasites such as whipworms

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

  • Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency

  • Hyperthyroidism or other metabolic condition

  • Cancer

  • Dysbiosis

Chronic diarrhea in dogs can sometimes lead to weight loss, a dry and unthrifty hair coat, and lethargy.

If your pet is continuously exposed to a diet that they are sensitive to, this can also cause chronic intermittent diarrhea.

Some dog and cat foods that are marketed as healthier for your pet can also be high in fat and protein. Grain-free diets remove healthy fiber content from the dog food, which can be very rough on a sensitive system.

It is important to look for balance in a diet and that it comes from a reputable company that is doing their homework when it comes to their formulations.

Diarrhea With Vomiting in Dogs

When dog diarrhea occurs with vomiting, a new section of the gastrointestinal tract has entered the picture. Gastroenteritis is the group term for inflammation of both the stomach and the upper GI tract.

Sometimes a high-fat treat, even a small one, can trigger pancreatitis—a condition wherein the pancreas, which produces digestive enzymes, among other things, becomes inflamed. This condition can cause acute vomiting and diarrhea as well as abdominal pain. In very severe cases, pancreatitis can even be fatal.

Vomit that contains blood can look red, brown, or black. Unlike a small amount of blood in the stool, any amount of blood in vomit is concerning and should result in a trip to the vet right away.

The color of your pet’s bowel movement is most often impacted by what they are eating. Simply put, lighter colored foods will result in a lighter colored poop. There are a few color indicators that are important to note when talking to your vet.

Yellow Diarrhea

Yellow diarrhea is most typically caused when a pet parent has started feeding a bland diet, such as chicken and rice.

The chicken and rice are white, and when they mix with yellow bile in the gastrointestinal tract, it comes out as yellow stools.

Bloody Diarrhea

Bloody diarrhea or hematochezia is caused when there is large bowel diarrhea or colitis. This occurs when small blood vessels in the lower part of the GI tract break open and bleed a bit into the stool.

A small amount of blood is not overly concerning, but if the stool is primarily blood, your pet should be taken to the vet right away.

Black Diarrhea

Black diarrhea or melena is caused when blood is being digested before it is passed. This stool looks like newborn baby poop and can have a black or greenish color.

Melena can be seen with conditions such as bleeding ulcers or foreign bodies.

You should never use your own human medications on your pets. Only administer medications as prescribed by your veterinarian.

  • Antibiotics can make diarrhea worse

  • In my experience, Pepto Bismol just results in pink vomit

  • Imodium works by paralyzing the gastrointestinal tract. This can be a problem for pets that eat things they aren’t supposed to (such as toxins or foreign objects) or have parasites that need to be moved through.

The best thing you can do for your dog at home when diarrhea hits is to feed them a bland diet.

Think simple protein (lean chicken, beef, ground chuck, white fish, or cooked eggs) and simple carbohydrates (white or brown rice, white or sweet potatoes) combined.

Feed small, frequent meals that help heal the GI tract but do not overwhelm it.

In the case of stress-induced diarrhea, starting a fiber supplement a few days prior to the stressful event can help prevent the diarrhea from starting. Psyllium fiber can be purchased over the counter in products like Metamucil.

You can also opt for canned pumpkin as a source of fiber that you can add to your dog’s food.

If you have tried giving a bland diet for 48 hours and the diarrhea is persistent, it’s time to go to the vet.

Other signs that would warrant a prompt appointment would be:

  • Vomiting (especially if there is blood present)

  • Weight loss

  • Severe diarrhea with large amounts of blood

  • Diarrhea after administering vaccines or medication

If you are ever unsure, it is best to err on the side of caution and call your vet’s office.  

When you go to the vet, they may recommend one or a few tests to help them weed through the extensive list of possible diagnoses:

  1. Fecal flotation looks for the presence of intestinal parasites.

  2. Giardia tests look for the presence of the Giardia parasite.

  3. Gram stains look for certain types of bacteria and/or an overgrowth of bacteria.

  4. Parvo testing screens for parvovirus.

  5. Chemistry and CBC bloodwork look for signs of protein loss, metabolic disease, inflammation, anemia, and much more.

  6. CPL tests look for the presence of pancreatic lipase, which can be elevated in pets with pancreatitis.

  7. Imaging (radiographs or ultrasound) looks for evidence of obstruction, cancer, gall bladder disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and much more.

It is important to bring the following information with you to your veterinary appointment:

  • Thorough history of the illness, including when it started

  • Symptoms you have noticed

  • Colors of stools

  • Whether or not there is anything you can think of out of the ordinary that may have brought the diarrhea on

When an owner can provide a thorough history, it sometimes means a doctor can narrow down the list of tests they want to run—which can help save time and money when coming to a diagnosis.

The treatment that your vet prescribes will depend on their diagnosis or suspected diagnosis.

Medications Used for Dog Diarrhea

Metronidazole and Tylosin are two antibiotics that have known anti-inflammatory properties in the gastrointestinal tract. When a bacterial overgrowth is suspected, additional antibiotics may be added, such as amoxicillin.

Probiotics and fiber can be an important part of resolving diarrhea. The good bacteria in the GI consume fiber and produce short-chain fatty acids that help heal the intestine.

In the case of diarrhea caused by cancer, a chemotherapeutic drug may be prescribed.

Antacids and stomach protectants can help to resolve stomach and upper GI irritation, and anti-nausea drugs are often added when vomiting or inappetence is an issue.

Other options include deworming and/or anti-inflammatories such as prednisone.

Change of Diet for Diarrhea in Dogs

Other components of treatment may include a bland prescription diet, a high-calorie diet, or a hypoallergenic diet.

When dealing with diarrhea, the answers can be easy all the way up until they aren’t!

Ultimately, it’s important to always loop in your veterinarian when you are concerned about your pet’s illness. Remember that our pets can’t talk to us to tell us how bad they feel. When in doubt, always consult your veterinarian.

What Does Yellow Diarrhea Mean?

Typically, stool and diarrhea are brown, the color created by bilirubin, a byproduct of your red blood cells produced in the liver and passed through the gallbladder. Colors outside of this shade can be worrisome, especially if you have an episode of yellow diarrhea.

While it’s normal for the color of your stool to change depending on diet and other factors, yellow poop and diarrhea are worth paying attention to. It could very well be nothing to worry about, but there’s also a chance it merits a call to the doctor.

Without further ado, what does yellow diarrhea mean?


The most common cause of yellow-orange poop or diarrhea is eating a large amount of food in the same or similar hues. Common culprits include sweet potatoes, carrots, or processed foods with food coloring agents. Green foods, such as kale, spinach and celery, could also be to blame for yellow poop or diarrhea.

Celiac Disease

Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune gluten intolerance that can cause yellow diarrhea and a range of other symptoms including foggy brain, irritability, malabsorption of nutrients, weight gain, and many others. Fortunately, this condition can be effectively managed by avoiding gluten.

CD causes the body to attack its digestive tract, causing damage and malabsorption. Because those with CD are unable to properly absorb nutrients and fat, they often have excess amounts of fat in their stool, which can cause the yellow coloration.

Liver, Gallbladder, or Pancreatic Disorders

These disorders are less likely to be causing your yellow diarrhea, but it’s important to be aware of them. Hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver can cause a reduction in bile salt which your body needs to properly digest foods. Gallstones can also lead to yellow stool or diarrhea, as they reduce the amount of bile that reaches your intestines. Typically, pain accompanies these disorders.

Pancreatitis (an inflamed pancreas), pancreatic cancer, and other pancreatic disorders affect the number of digestive enzymes present in the digestive tract which makes it hard for your body to digest fats. Poor fat digestion may be the cause of yellow diarrhea, especially if it also looks somewhat greasy or frothy.


Believe it or not, stress and anxiety can be a cause of yellow stool. Usually, high stress levels cause digestion to speed up, meaning foods move through your system too quickly. The yellow color is caused by a combination of bilirubin and undigested fat.

At the end of the day, there is a good chance your yellow diarrhea doesn’t mean much, except that you overdid it on the carrots or need to keep your daily stress levels in check. Of course, if you suspect a deeper problem is causing your stool to change color, it’s never a bad idea to check in with your doctor to rule out the conditions mentioned above.

Check out this fantastic infographic on what your toddler’s number two is telling you to become a stool color detective, and always follow your instinct as to whether medical attention is needed. You know your body best and what is (and is not) normal.

90,000 Stool carbohydrate content (fecal reducing substances; Stool sugars; Reducing substances, fecal)

Study material

Method of determination
Benedict’s method.

The test is mainly used to diagnose lactase deficiency (malabsorption of lactose and poor tolerance to foods containing milk sugar) in infants in their first year of life.

Milk sugar, or lactose, is the main carbohydrate in milk. It is a disaccharide composed of glucose and galactose. In the small intestine, it is broken down into these monosaccharides, but only with the help of a single enzyme – lactase. Unbroken lactose remains in the intestinal lumen, retains fluid, contributes to diarrhea, the appearance of a large amount of gas, and cramping abdominal pain.

Lactase deficiency (LN) is a congenital or acquired condition characterized by a decrease in the activity of the enzyme lactase.Lactose intolerance is a clinically present, congenital or acquired inability to break down lactose. The equivalent of the term lactose intolerance is lactose intolerance. This enzyme deficiency is a widespread condition. In adults, it differs depending on the region: Sweden, Denmark – 3%, Finland, Switzerland – 16%, England – 20 – 30%, France – 42%, Southeast Asian countries, African Americans in the USA – 80 – 100% , European part of Russia – 16 – 18%.

This problem is of the greatest importance for young children, since at this age period dairy products make up a significant share in the diet, and in the first year of life they are the main food product. Lactose makes up approximately 80 – 85% of the carbohydrates in breast milk and is contained in it in an amount of 6 – 7 g / 100 ml. In cow’s milk, its content is slightly lower – 4.5 – 5.0 g / 100 ml. Other dairy products also contain lactose, but in even lower amounts. Lactase is first detected at 10 to 12 weeks of gestation; from the 24th week, an increase in its activity begins, which reaches a maximum by the time of birth.From 17 to 24 weeks, it is most active in the jejunum, then the activities in the proximal and distal intestine are evened out. From 28 to 34 weeks, lactase activity is 30% of its level at 39 to 40 weeks. In the last weeks of gestation, there is a rapid increase in lactase activity to levels above that of an adult.

The listed factors cause lactase deficiency in premature and immature children by the time of birth. In full-term newborns, the enzyme activity is 2 to 4 times higher than in children aged 10 to 12 months.In subsequent years of life, the activity of lactase normally decreases, making up only 5-10% of the initial level in adults.

Partial (hypolactasia) or complete (alactasia) lactase deficiency is distinguished according to the severity. By origin: primary LN (congenital decrease in lactase activity with morphologically intact enterocyte) and secondary LN (decrease in lactose activity associated with damage to the enterocyte).

Primary LP options:

  • congenital (genetically determined, familial) FN;
  • transient FN of premature and immature children by the time of birth;
  • LN of the adult type (constitutional LN).

Secondary lactase deficiency is especially common among children in the first year of life and is often a consequence of intestinal dysbiosis or immaturity of the pancreas. It can be caused by: infections (rotavirus, opportunistic microflora), food allergies, celiac disease, giardiasis, enteritis.

In early childhood, lactase deficiency is often transient or secondary. It is often the cause of colic, anxiety, dyspeptic disorders.Since the symptoms of secondary lactase deficiency are superimposed on the symptoms of the underlying disease, its diagnosis can be very difficult. Secondary lactase deficiency disappears after correction of intestinal dysbiosis or with age (transient), and then at an older age, milk sugar is normally absorbed.

It is possible to confirm or deny lactase deficiency by determining the content of carbohydrates in feces by Benedict’s method. This study reflects the overall ability to metabolize carbohydrates.This study is based on a reaction that allows one to detect the presence of sugars with a reducing activity (the ability to reduce copper from the state of Cu2 + to Cu1 +). These include glucose, galactose, lactose, fructose, maltose. Sucrose does not have this ability.

Normally, the content of sugars with reducing activity in feces is insignificant. Exceeding the reference values ​​characterizes the violation of the breakdown and absorption of sugars. When examining children of the first year of life, the result mainly reflects the residual content of milk sugar in the feces – lactose and the products of the breakdown of residual lactose (glucose and galactose) by the microflora of the large intestine and feces.

The method does not allow differentiating between different types of disaccharidase deficiency, however, together with clinical data, it is quite sufficient for screening and monitoring the correct selection of a diet.

90,000 symptoms and treatment with photo

Violation of stool in chickens is manifested in a change in color, smell and consistency of feces, which can be caused both by diseases and be the cause of a violation of the optimal regimes for keeping chickens.In order to timely detect a change in the type of droppings, one should be attentive to the changes occurring with the litter on which the birds are kept, and the change in the structure, consistency of the droppings they emit.

As the main causes of diarrhea in chickens, farmers name pathologies associated with disruption of the digestive system and caused by the presence of infection in the body of a bird. To take the right measures to eliminate diarrhea in laying hens, first of all, you need to evaluate the changes that have occurred with chicken droppings.

Signs of diarrhea in chickens

Normally, the feces excreted by laying hens look like elongated granules with dark brown and brown shades and are characterized by a regular-shaped structure. The litter of a healthy animal is easily separated from the litter, maintaining the size and shape of the individual elements. If a deviation or suspicion of it is detected, associated with indirect symptoms of diarrhea, the farmer determines the possible cause of the pathology, assessing the metamorphoses that have occurred with feces.

Along with a change in consistency, one of the signs that make it possible to diagnose diarrhea in chickens is an unusual color of secretions in poultry:

  • Litter with green shades of color can be associated with the use of excessive amounts of green fodder in the diet associated with the consumption of large amounts of plant mass in the summer.
  • In the photo: example green diarrhea in chickens
  • Another cause of green diarrhea in chickens is the presence of a cold infection in their body.Since a sick animal carries a high threat of infection of the entire livestock, if such a pathology is detected, it is urgently required to isolate the hen with a pathology in a separate room, for quarantine. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide for several additional warm rooms located separately from the common chicken coop where the bird is kept until the symptoms of pathology completely cease.

Important! Pasteurellosis is a violation of the stool in poultry resulting from infection and characterized by a discharge in the form of green diarrhea with possible admixtures of mucus and bloody discharge.

  • Discharge that is white (white diarrhea in chickens ), can mean the ingestion of E. coli into the body of a laying hen, while in the process of development or in the absence of timely measures from the farmer, there is a high probability of developing pullorosis, or white bacillary diarrhea. In appearance, the fecal masses in this case are transparent or white discharge with a slimy consistency.
  • In the photo : example white diarrhea in chickens
  • In addition, diarrhea of white tones in chickens may indicate infection of the bird with paratyphoid bacteria.In this case, experts note the high dynamics of the development of pathology, while the conditions of detention, for example, the lack of ventilation in the chicken coop and the accumulation of a large number of chickens in a small area, contribute to the spread of pathology.

How and how to treat pullorosis (white diarrhea) in chickens – read on.

  • Brown liquid feces can appear when chickens are infected with protozoan parasites. As a rule, the food and water consumed by the bird are the source of intoxication.
  • In the photo: example yellow diarrhea in chickens
  • Yellow droppings may appear due to invasions, since helminth forms have a serious effect on the animal’s liver.
  • A pathology called clostridiosis is distinguished into a separate group, which manifests itself in the form of feces with black color secretions with the possible presence of gas bubbles in them and a pronounced atypical odor.
  • Litter excreted by laying hens, infected eggs of nematodes and roundworms acquire yellow shades . At the same time, farmers note that the presence of invasive forms in the body of a bird is characterized by weight loss, loss of appetite and, in advanced cases, can lead to the death of the animal. Therefore, it is worth taking seriously if yellow diarrhea is found in chickens.

Important! The appearance of a sharp unpleasant odor of discharge in birds indicates an imbalance in the diet of chickens in the direction of an increase in the amount of protein compounds, as a result of which feces ferment in the intestines of the animal.

In the photo: example of diarrhea with bloody streaks in chickens

  • Sometimes, in the droppings of chickens, you can find bloody streaks , this is due to the presence of pathogenic bacteria in the intestines of birds and is called coccidiosis. This pathology can be diagnosed by a number of symptoms such as a decrease in the motor activity of the animal, the presence of streaks of blood and mucous secretions in the diarrhea of ​​chickens, an indifferent attitude of the laying hen to food, the acquisition of a white comb due to a lack of iron in the body.The best solution in this situation to eliminate the possibility of loss of layers is to seek the help of a qualified veterinarian.

Pay attention! Another cause of bloody diarrhea in chickens can be mechanical damage to the cloaca.

Any faeces excreted by poultry should not contain mucus, bubbles or blood.An excessive amount of fat in the diet of a laying hen can lead to a change in the viscosity of feces, acquiring a sticky consistency.

Causes of diarrhea (diarrhea) in chickens

Among the most common causes of litter change and diarrhea in chickens, farmers identify:

  1. Consumption of low-quality feed occurs in the case of purchasing feed with an expired shelf life or impaired storage technology. As a result, pathogenic and fungal microorganisms develop in it, which are difficult to diagnose by visual inspection, but cause an immediate reaction when they enter the animal’s body.

Important! External manifestations in this case may be the appearance of vomiting, seizures and general weakness in chickens associated with intoxication of the body.

  1. Changing the diet of chickens can also cause diarrhea, due to the disturbance of the digestive process associated with a sudden change in the type of feed. Outwardly, the effect of this factor is manifested in the presence of undigested food residues on the surface of feces.
  2. Poisoning when large amounts of heavy metals are ingested into the feed occurs as a result of storing feed in containers made of zinc and copper that are not intended for these purposes.

Pay attention! Among the not very common causes of pathology, experts call spring vitamin deficiency; to eliminate the deviation, it is enough to introduce complexes based on vitamins and minerals into the diet of chickens.

  1. Stool pathology in poultry can cause respiratory system disorder associated with poisoning when sprayed with some aerosols or prolonged inhalation of air filled with tobacco smoke .
  2. Violations diagnosed in droppings also occur with improper organization of drinking bowls , untimely sanitary measures, which leads to stagnation of liquid and the creation of favorable conditions for the development of pathogenic microflora.

Pay attention! Some of the pathologies are a consequence of the stress suffered by birds, associated with a visit to the chicken coop by a stranger, collisions with pets, transportation or violent skirmishes with feathered relatives.To normalize the consistency and color of feces, in this case, it is enough to provide the chickens with silence and calm conditions of detention.

  1. An important factor provoking loosening of the stool is colds, occurring in conditions of low temperatures and high humidity. To exclude this event, it is necessary to take timely care of creating an optimal microclimate in the place where the birds are kept.
  2. Another cause of diarrhea is the consumption of seeds of poisonous plants by chickens , occurs when eating food containing buttercup seeds, datura or milkweed.

In general, according to the testimony of farmers, diarrhea is a fairly frequent phenomenon in keeping chickens, however, timely taking the necessary measures ensures its rapid elimination. In the absence of intervention, depending on the state of the laying hen’s immune system, the pathology can continue for several days.

Methods and methods of treating diarrhea in chickens

After determining the symptoms and causes of diarrhea in chickens, a number of measures must be taken to ensure either the elimination of infection from the body of chickens, or aimed at normalizing the work of the digestive tract and excretory system in birds.

How to treat diarrhea in chickens?

These measures, depending on the cause of the pathology, may include:

  • If the cause of diarrhea in chickens is food poisoning, it is necessary first of all to ensure the binding and removal of toxic components from the intestinal area . For this purpose, preparations with adsorbing properties, such as wood ash and activated carbon, can be used. For this, the listed substances are dissolved in water and added to the drinking bowl for chickens.
  • At the second stage, disinfection and cleaning of the body should be carried out, for this you can use a weakly colored solution of potassium permanganate.

Pay attention! Some farmers practice oat decoction with a few drops of astringent red wine.

  • For the final elimination of pathogenic microflora, it is necessary to water chickens with Levomycetin at the rate of 5 tablets / 1 liter of water or Biseptol , which should be taken twice a day, 1/8 of a tablet per session.

Important! Any type of diarrhea in chickens leads to dehydration of the bird’s body, and therefore, if a pathology is detected, it is necessary to provide a regime of abundant drinking with the addition of a decoction of oatmeal or rice groats or a small amount of potassium permanganate.

  • In order to suppress pathogenic microflora, therapy with antibiotics is carried out. It includes the addition of Furazolidone, Doxycillin, Enrofloxacin, Levomycetin, Tetracycline or complex-type aqueous solutions such as Quincol, Enrocoli, Avidox, Dolink, Trisulfone to food.

You should know! Therapy is carried out for 3-5 days using the drugs recommended by the veterinarian.

  • Since some antibiotics have a negative effect on the beneficial intestinal microflora, to restore the normal functioning of the digestive system , drugs such as Lactobacterin, Acilek, Bifidumbacterin, Monosporin or the addition of whey or yogurt to bird feed can be used.
  • With the aim of to strengthen the immune system of the laying hen , after suffering diarrhea, it is practiced to use vitamin-type premixes and vitamin solutions added to the diet of chickens for 1.5-2 weeks.

Pay attention! Among the most popular drugs among farmers, Hydrorexvital, Chiktonik, Vitaminol should be noted.

  • In the treatment of pullorosis (white diarrhea in chickens) , antibacterial medicines are used, including Furagin, Furazolidone, Terramycin, taken according to the scheme of 2 weeks of use with three days of break, after which, if necessary, the course should be repeated.
  • In order to eliminate invasive forms of , which caused stool disorders in chickens, drugs such as Tetramisole, Febendazole, Phenothiazine are used.

You should know! As a preventive measure, anti-ascaris treatment should be carried out several times throughout the year by adding drugs to the chicken diet. In order to restore microflora after each such treatment, it is necessary to use drugs such as probiotics, for example, Emprobio or Flosana.

As a therapeutic measure for the detection of diarrhea in chickens, a number of alternative methods can be used, ensuring high efficiency and rapid achievement of the result. So, when brown faeces appear, it is recommended to add a decoction of chamomile to the chickens drinker for several days. To stop diarrhea caused by the action of pathogenic microflora, a decoction based on pomegranate peels, which have pronounced antibacterial and astringent characteristics, can be used.

Prevention of diarrhea in chickens

To prevent the occurrence of pathology in chickens, the most experienced farmers carry out preventive measures, since it is always easier to prevent the appearance of a disease than to deal with its consequences.

Among the most effective measures to prevent diarrhea in chickens, they name:

  • To prevent feed change disorder, practice gradual introduction of complementary foods , gradually increasing the proportion of products such as mash, compound feed and pellets.
  • Most often, the appearance of microbial infections is associated with the use of trough and cup drinkers. Based on this, diarrhea in chickens associated with the use of poor-quality water can be prevented by using nipple-type drinkers when they are connected to running water from a tap.
  • A significant role in the prevention of stool pathologies is played by organization of timely change of bedding in the chicken coop , since even with optimal conditions of detention, over time, a certain amount of dangerous pathogenic life forms accumulates in it.

By the way! It is necessary to ensure the observance of sanitary and hygienic conditions in the area used for free range of birds, which also prevents the appearance of pathology in chickens.

Isolation of poultry in case of illness , as well as related procedures, are also preventive measures to prevent contamination of the entire flock.

Changes in the consistency and color of feces excreted by a laying hen are due to a number of reasons.The key to success in the event of a pathological discharge in a bird is a correct assessment of the event that caused the occurrence of a violation and its timely elimination or the implementation of the necessary therapeutic measures for the disease in chickens.

90,000 symptoms and causes of loose stools in a kitten and an adult, varieties, diagnosis and treatment of diarrhea in cats

Diarrhea in a cat causes concern not only for the pet itself, but also for its owner.It is easy to recognize the problem by frequent bowel movements, unusual color and consistency of feces, and a strange smell. There are many reasons for this condition; only a veterinarian can make an accurate diagnosis after examination and collection of tests.

Symptoms of diarrhea in a cat

If the cat has eaten something stale or unusual, then diarrhea may be accompanied by frequent bowel movements, flatulence, and bloating. In the case of a disease, the number of symptoms can grow to a dozen.

Signs of a pathological disorder of the stool

In addition to soft feces, loose stools in cats are accompanied by with the following symptoms:

  • apathetic behavior;

  • vomit;

  • lack of appetite;

  • weight loss due to long-term disorder;

  • dangerous dehydration;

  • impurities of blood, mucus, undigested pieces of food;

  • temperature increase;

  • hard stomach.

Correctly selected treatment will help get rid of pathology without a trace. However, a veterinarian will be able to fully compose a picture of the disease – after receiving information about the patient’s behavior over the past few days. During the examination, the specialist will check the body temperature, feel the abdominal area, and determine the degree of dehydration. Analyzes of secretions for the presence of parasites or impurities, as well as X-rays, will help to diagnose the cause of the disease with the greatest accuracy.

Duration of diarrhea in a cat

The appearance as well as the disappearance of the symptoms of pathology can go unnoticed by the owner. In a single case of diarrhea, a cat has nothing to worry about, but a long-term disorder becomes an alarming sign. Doctors talk about three forms of pathology:

  1. Acute type accompanied by painful, frequent bowel movements.The malaise lasts for several days.

  2. Chronic form, lasting more than 7 days and causing severe exhaustion with dehydration.

  3. The intermittent type is periodic in nature. He sometimes returns within 1 month.

Diarrhea in a cat, which appeared due to an incorrectly selected menu, goes away quickly after changing the diet.The work of the gastrointestinal tract is restored, and the stool returns to normal. Nutritional therapy involves a diet with limited food and plenty of water. Diseases of the other type require a lot of attention from the veterinarian and the owner.

Some features of the disorder in kittens

A kitten may have diarrhea suddenly, due to a weak gastrointestinal tract. Babies are more susceptible to attacks by viruses and bacteria than adults, and they also react more strongly to stale or too fatty foods.

A kitten that has just been weaned from its mother often has stool breaks. To prevent this from happening, it is better to take the kitten from the family where it was gradually transferred to solid food. A sharp separation from breast milk can provoke a number of diseases – and not only gastrointestinal ones.

In some cases, loose stools in a kitten signals serious illnesses from which they did not have time to vaccinate them – panleukopenia (distemper) or leptospirosis.Here, the chances of survival depend on the speed of treatment and the baby’s immune system.

Only a veterinarian will tell you how to treat diarrhea in a kitten, since any prescription of drugs should be strictly adjusted according to the dose and duration of use. The main task of the owner before the appointment of therapy is to replenish the lack of fluid in the baby’s body.

Digestive problems in a pregnant or lactating female

The expectant mother is more susceptible to attacks by viruses or bacteria than other individuals.Any pathogenic microorganisms that enter the body of a pregnant female cause problems in the work of the gastrointestinal tract. New food can also cause intolerance and intestinal backlash. Such products are beef, horse meat, soybeans, fatty fish, chicken eggs, high-calorie fermented milk products.

Often, even the usual food causes frequent bowel movements in a pregnant female. You should not feed the ever-hungry mother-to-be with food from the master’s table.An excessive amount of food does not have time to be digested, leaving in the form of liquid feces. Such a pathology is capable of provoking a miscarriage. However, it is normal for diarrhea to occur a couple of days before childbirth.

The factor that provokes diarrhea in a lactating female is most often milk. Its excessive consumption in its natural form is not very useful for the pet. Milk should be replaced with cottage cheese, fermented baked milk, kefir or unsweetened yogurt.

Hormonal changes in the body or postpartum stress can also cause weakened intestines.Due to feeding, the water-salt balance is disturbed.

Causes of diarrhea in a kitten or cat

A variety of factors can be responsible for the appearance of loose stools in a cat. First of all, these are various pathologies: inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, uncontrolled intake of antibiotics, intoxication, parasites, various infections. The list also includes oncology and diabetes.

The pathological causes of diarrhea in cats include diseases of the internal organs that are not directly related to the gastrointestinal tract.These are diseases of the kidneys and liver, pancreas, and sometimes fungal infections.

In especially dangerous cases, the cause can be a foreign body stuck in one of the intestinal sections. It usually causes severe pain in the pet. It is easy to determine soreness: you need to palpate (feel) the abdomen. If the cat hurts in one particular place, it is necessary to urgently go to the veterinary hospital. Soreness does not always indicate a foreign body, but it is better to play it safe.

There are breeds that are most picky about diet and new dishes. Such animals are considered to be Devon Rex and Canadian Sphynx. They have a rather unstable digestive system, so stool breakdowns occur frequently.

Something dangerous does not always cause diarrhea in a cat – it is likely that the following factors have negatively affected :

In this case, you can not go to the veterinarian, but stabilize the condition of the pet by returning to the usual food and a sparing mode of life.If you notice diarrhea and vomiting in a kitten or a pregnant female – in any case, you need a doctor’s advice.

Varieties of diarrhea in a cat

Any digestive disorders require the use of drug therapy and a therapeutic diet. The veterinarian will help solve the problem, finding out the root cause. Analysis of the consistency and color of feces, as well as the detection of accompanying symptoms, help to see the complete clinical picture. Therefore, it is important for the owner, if not to collect the biomaterial, then at least to remember how it looks.

Diarrhea in a cat without complications

The disease without any complications can be triggered by many factors. For example, banal overeating becomes a factor of malaise. It is easy to notice by the behavior of the mustachioed pet. His appetite does not disappear, a playful mood remains, however, even a single case becomes a reason for special control over the diet. It is necessary to be wary if the feces acquire a different color and an uncharacteristic smell.Then you can’t avoid visiting the clinic.

Diarrhea in a cat with water

Liquid bowel movements can be one-time, but it also serves as a signal of some ailments. Watery excrement that lasts longer than one day is a reason to consult your veterinarian. Recommendations can be obtained by phone, answering in detail the questions of a specialist.

In the absence of vomiting, you can help your pet at home using boiled water at room temperature.Its use will help to avoid dehydration, which is dangerous for a mustachioed friend. Food of any type is greatly reduced or completely removed for no more than a day until the pathology disappears. In the future, the condition is monitored, especially after feeding.

Loose stools in a cat with blood or mucus

The appearance of a fetid feces with impurities of mucus is possible during treatment for intestinal parasites. Worms killed by drugs decompose and turn into a dense mass of greenish color.If the pet had a lot of parasites in the body, then there will also be a lot of mucous secretions in the feces.

Feces combined with blood appear due to inflammation of the colon. This condition is called colitis. For diagnosis, the veterinarian takes tests. Other causes of bloody feces can be foreign objects blocking the passage of the intestines, swelling, or severe poisoning.

After identifying the symptom factors, the veterinarian will recommend changing or adjusting the patient’s diet.It is necessary to completely exclude smoked, spicy, salty foods, sweets and starchy foods that are harmful at any time. Milk and fermented milk products will complicate the situation, therefore, should be removed from the menu.

The recommended products are oatmeal and rice porridge in water or broth. Severe cases require the use of medications, which are prescribed by a specialist. Special enzymes, antimicrobial agents, immunostimulants, as well as anti-inflammatory enemas will help restore digestive functions.

Deworming requires the use of antihelminthic agents. It is not difficult to free the body of an animal from parasites, but this should be done regularly, without waiting for intoxication. To prevent dehydration and cleanse the intestines in a natural way, ordinary clean drinking water in a free access for a mustachioed friend can help.

The cat has diarrhea and vomiting

The combination of different symptoms suggests that the body is struggling with the negative effects of the external environment.Pathologies can be allergic reactions to inappropriate food, poisoning, bacterial inflammation, pancreatitis, neoplasms, kidney disease, intestinal obstruction, thyroid dysfunction. Heatstroke or sunstroke sometimes causes this reaction.

A mustachioed friend may feel sick from feeding dishes from the master’s table. Human food is unhealthy because it contains a lot of preservatives, spices, and harmful additives. The organs remove harmful toxins along with feces and vomit.Prolonged diarrhea in combination with white foam should alert the owner. This is a sign of dangerous enteritis, which, without timely treatment, leads to death.

The veterinarian prescribes probiotics, as well as medications to normalize the pet’s condition. The lack of positive results after the measures taken gives rise to an additional examination of the patient.

The cat has black feces

The color of the stool should normally be brown or light brown.Black liquid feces are called melena and indicate problems with the internal organs of the pet. Non-dangerous causes that provoke the appearance of dark feces may be:

  1. Iron supplements added to pet foods.

  2. Raw meat, raw meat or blood meal, which the pet receives too much.

If the owner knows that the diet does not contain iron-containing preparations and a large amount of raw meat, then we are talking about dangerous changes in the animal’s body.Additional symptoms in the form of vomiting, fever, lack of appetite require urgent contact with a veterinarian.

Dark feces indicate the presence of blood in it, therefore, all the causes that caused the symptom are serious enough. Their list is very extensive: invasion by intestinal parasites, hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, colitis, gastritis, neoplasms in the stomach or intestines, stomach ulcers. Liquid feces of red-black color indicate dangerous bleeding in the organs of the gastrointestinal tract.Any of these diseases does not allow self-medication and needs a doctor’s prescription.

The cat has yellow diarrhea

A yellow color without an orange tint is one of the options for the norm. Usually bilirubin in bile begins to be processed into brown stercobilin. With liquid feces, bilirubin does not have time to be completely absorbed and therefore stains the excrement a pale yellow color. Bright yellow or orange stools indicate poor absorption of food.

Jaundice can be another factor in color change. Having noticed an unusual condition, the owner should pay attention to the cat’s diet in the last days. If there was too much raw fatty meats, fish, liver, as well as milk, then the diet should be urgently adjusted. The result should be a normalization of the color and density of the feces. If this does not happen, then you need to urgently contact your veterinarian.

The doctor will find out the cause of the disease.If this is overfeeding or a reaction to a new type of food, then he will recommend taking up treatment at home. It consists of looking after the condition of the pet. Dehydration can very quickly cause death in a kitten, so access to clean, boiled water at room temperature is a must. Bilirubin is a very aggressive substance, therefore, after each bowel movement, the animal’s anus should be washed with warm water and baby soap.

Green and white excrement

The green color of feces is the result of decay or fermentation in the large intestine.This is due to rotten food particles stuck in the pet’s body. Microorganisms are contained in them in large quantities, which causes intoxication and the development of poisoning. Toxic substances infect the entire body, so prolonged green liquid feces become a dangerous symptom. The veterinarian prescribes the use of droppers with an antibiotic solution to prevent the development of infection.

White color indicates the absence of bilirubin in excrement.Then the feces of a light color indicate a blockage of the pathways responsible for the excretion of bile. White feces are a signal of chronic liver problems. Even a single whitish diarrhea is a serious reason for going to a veterinary clinic.

Diagnosis and treatment of diarrhea in cats

The owner should not worry too much about the symptom if the pet is vaccinated or there was no communication with homeless relatives.The main goal is to understand the root cause of the pathology and assess the health of the animal.

Making a diagnosis

It should be understood that adjusting nutrition does not always have a positive effect on restoring bowel movements. Sometimes severe cases require serious veterinary intervention.

Often the veterinarian will require additional laboratory tests. These can be:

  1. Urine and blood tests. A general analysis makes it possible to identify hidden bleeding, inflammation, and the degree of dehydration. A biochemical blood test determines abnormalities in the work of internal organs.

  2. Stool analysis is collected at least three times. This will identify parasites or bacterial contamination.

  3. Ultrasound or X-ray of the gastrointestinal tract.

  4. Endoscopy with a special camera, which helps to identify a tumor, polyps, and inflammation.

All studies are carried out in the clinic, where the pet must be transported in a plastic carrier with a leakproof hard bottom. For hygienic purposes, it is recommended to use disposable diapers.

First aid without veterinarian

If your cat’s diarrhea is caused by a change in diet or diet, then you can treat it at home.It is advisable to get advice from a veterinarian by phone. He will tell you what to do in case of diarrhea in a cat or a sufficiently old kitten.

On the first day, you should not give the sick person food, but the drink should be plentiful. Ideally, you should give the cat still mineral water. If the pet refuses to drink the liquid, you will have to water it forcibly. To do this, use a conventional syringe without a needle.

On the second day, give food based on rice water: it strengthens well.All food should be puree.

Clean the disinfectant tray in time. It is advisable to provide the animal with several trays so that it is more comfortable for him to manage his affairs.

Giving pills or decoctions to cats without veterinarian advice is highly undesirable – a strong side effect or an allergic reaction is possible. Dosage problems can also arise.

If the cat’s diarrhea does not go away within two days, it is necessary to show the caudate to the veterinarian.Otherwise, it can lead to serious complications and death.


To restore the consistency of feces, there are a large number of medicines that are suitable for suffering pets. Not all of them can be recommended by a doctor. Most of them remove the symptoms, but not the cause of the disease. How to treat diarrhea in a cat in classic cases:

  1. Enterofuril is an effective drug that does not have pronounced side effects for the body.It allows you to save your pet from a disease that is caused by a bacterial infection or a virus.

  2. Diarkan are tablets that dissolve in water or are added to food. They are used until the disorder is resolved. However, if the situation has not improved after 5 days, then the drug is changed. The remedy works well against infectious disorders.

  3. Furazolidone is an antimicrobial drug that prevents the development and spread of bacteria inside the body.Medicines are very effective when taken in the correct dosage.

  4. Bifidumbacterin is a probiotic that restores the functions of the gastrointestinal tract and reduces the number of pathogenic viruses. This drug is prescribed for prolonged ailments, combined with a course of antibiotics.

  5. Activated carbon, Smecta – enterosorbent preparations that remove toxic substances from the intestines.

  6. Phtalazol is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent. He is able to cope even with salmonella. Tablets are given in crushed form, mixed with water.

  7. Enterosgel is a remedy for toxins that helps well against poisoning, for intestinal infections, after treatment for worms.

  8. Loperamide is not a medication that removes the cause.However, he copes well with the symptoms of malaise, as it gets stronger. The tablets are excellent at removing bacteria and toxins.

  9. Levomycetin is a powerful agent against viruses and microorganisms. Medicines have side effects in the form of rashes, dermatitis, or flatulence. Do not use the product for pregnant and lactating individuals.

Any of the medicines should be used only after consulting a specialist.Only a doctor will be able to correctly identify the disease that caused the diarrhea and prescribe the appropriate medications.

What not to do

Until you or your veterinarian have established the exact cause of the cat’s diarrhea, you should never begin treatment with pills. If the animal is poisoned, it is inappropriate to give drugs to slow down peristalsis: the toxins will remain in the body, which will lead to bad consequences.

Another sad example: the cause of the disorder was dysbiosis, but the animal began to be treated with strong antibiotics.Obviously, the pet’s condition will only get worse.

You can not force feed the animal, as well as drink milk, kefir, decoctions of herbs. Only water is suitable, in some cases slightly salted, or mineral water without gases.

It is strictly forbidden to scold a pet for dirty things in the house or show irritation – now he needs peace more than ever. Like any sick cat, a cat needs love and increased care.

What to do if a kitten has diarrhea? Self-medication is categorically excluded here, and a small patient is examined by a veterinarian without fail and urgently.

Diet food

If your cat has loose stools, what should you do first? It is necessary not to feed the animal for one day. But water should be given in large quantities. It will need to be boiled and cooled to room temperature.

While the animal has problems, it is not given any types of dairy, cultured milk products, fatty meat, starchy foods. After one day, the patient is fed in small portions. The rate is reduced by half, offering the sufferer low-fat food that is easy to digest.

The therapeutic diet involves fractional feeding 3-4 times a day. Prescribed medicines are added to food in crushed or diluted form. Foods recommended for the disorder include:

  • boiled white rice;

  • boiled chicken without skin;

  • boiled egg yolk.

Wet canned food for animals, specially designed for problem cases, is well absorbed and affects the patient’s body.They do not irritate the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract. Return to the usual diet is allowed only after the complete restoration of the health of the mustachioed friend.

Prevention of digestive problems

Like any other disease, diarrhea is better prevented than treated later. It is clear that the mustache suffers not only physiologically: the psychological state of the pet is very difficult. The following preventive measures will help prevent pathology:

  1. The habitat must be kept in good sanitary conditions.You should regularly change and wash the bedding, clean the beds and furniture where the cat sleeps.

  2. Do not leave food in bowls as this will lead to food poisoning.

  3. Commercial feed should be of high quality, preferably premium. When changing feed or switching from natural products to dry foods, this should be done gradually. This allows the body to adapt better to new foods.

  4. Disinfect the litter box regularly to reduce bacteria on the surface.

  5. From the first days of the appearance of a kitten in the house, you should take care of timely comprehensive vaccination against major diseases.

  6. At least twice a year (ideally, once a quarter), cats are treated for intestinal parasites. This strengthens the animal’s immune system.

  7. Open packages or bottles with household chemicals, medicines, perfumes should not be kept within reach.Accidental use of them causes dangerous poisoning.

  8. It is important to keep track of your pet’s contacts. Viral infections transmitted by air from street animals are dangerous for an unvaccinated cat.

Adhering to basic preventive measures will reduce the risk of digestive upset and improve overall health.

Diarrhea in a cat is of different types: with admixtures of blood, mucus, black, green or white, watery or without complications.Separately, they talk about disorders with the intestines in pregnant and lactating females, as well as in kittens. Medicines and a therapeutic diet will cope with violations, provided that the recommendations of the veterinarian are strictly followed.

90,000 INCREASE IN VOLUME – “The veterinarian will come!”Moscow

AN INCREASE IN VOLUME can occur for a variety of reasons and at different times – from several hours to several weeks.

In general, this condition can be observed for the following reasons:

increase due to volumetric internal formations: pregnancy, (especially multiple), large tumor, greatly enlarged uterine horns with its purulent inflammation – pyometra, significant accumulations of gas in the stomach and intestines, stagnation of feces, sharply enlarged bladder with acute urinary retention or atony.In some cases, large hernias can also simulate an enlarged abdomen.

increase due to sagging of the abdominal wall: with endocrine diseases – for example, with hypothyroidism, Cushing’s syndrome; obesity manifests itself in a similar way.

an increase due to the accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity (the nature of the fluid can be different – inflammatory and non-inflammatory (transudate, exudate, modified transudate) .Thus, infectious peritonitis of cats, hemoabdomen (accumulation of blood in the abdominal cavity during bleeding) can occur. , ascites in liver pathology (for example, cirrhosis), heart failure, neoplasms and other diseases.

What to look for:

– depending on the rate of abdominal enlargement, concomitant circumstances and general condition, certain diagnoses are more likely to be assumed.

– if the volume of the abdomen increased sharply (within a few hours) after trauma / recent surgery, the condition of the animal has noticeably worsened (weakness, shortness of breath, blanching, a decrease in temperature, possibly hemorrhages on the abdomen), then bleeding will be more likely.Ruptures of tumors of the abdominal cavity can also lead to bleeding – if your animal has already been observed with a similar diagnosis or there is such a possibility due to old age, help should be provided immediately!

If fluid accumulation is susceptible to ultrasound, then it is further taken for analysis. In case of bleeding, blood is taken from a vein for a clinical analysis at the same time in order to track the increase in bleeding, the degree of anemia, the need for blood transfusion, and the possibility of an emergency operation.

– a suddenly swollen abdomen after feeding in medium / large dogs, with a sharp deterioration (anxiety, salivation, urge to vomit, later onset of respiratory distress, weakness of the limbs, pale mucous membranes) will almost certainly be associated with acute expansion and volvulus .

You only have a couple of hours to provide first aid (an emergency operation is required after the condition is stabilized)! Further, the condition of the animal and the prognosis will rapidly deteriorate.Volvulus and hyperextension of the stomach wall lead to the development of painful shock, severe heart and respiratory failure, a drop in pressure, toxemia, impaired blood clotting and other life-threatening conditions. Without surgery, 100% of the animals die. Temporary relief of the condition is given by the introduction of a tube into the stomach or the removal of gases through a puncture. If you suspect an acute expansion and volvulus of the stomach, it is necessary to take the animal to the clinic, and not call a doctor at home!

Shown is a dog with acute enlargement and volvulus.

– with a gradual increase in the abdomen in females 1.5-2 months after estrus, first of all, pregnancy should be excluded (if the animal remains unattended for a few minutes or walks freely in the country) and inflammation of the uterus – pyometra …

In the photo there is a pregnant dog

Important: with pyometra, purulent outflows from the uterus are not mandatory – with a closed cervix there may be some! A characteristic symptom of inflammation of the uterus is increased thirst (polydipsia) .Feeling the abdomen should be very careful to avoid rupture of the uterus. If the heartbeat of the fetuses and their movement in the later stages is not felt, then even in the case of a planned pregnancy, ultrasound is strictly necessary (a normally developing pregnancy can turn into a pathological one with the death of the fetus). In other cases, ultrasound will also be a decisive procedure in making a diagnosis.

The photo shows a removed uterus with pus (pyometra) from a cat.

– with symptoms such as polydipsia / polyuria (increased thirst / increased urination), a simultaneous deterioration in the quality of the coat (thinning, up to bald patches; unkempt appearance), decreased activity against the background of a gradual increase in the abdomen (more precisely, sagging of the abdominal wall), it is necessary in first exclude endocrine diseases .If, in the case of hypothyroidism, in most cases it is enough to donate blood for thyroid hormones, then special tests are required to confirm Cushing’s syndrome (for example, a small dexamethasone test or others). It is characteristic that, unlike obesity, animals with endocrine diseases can look like “thin, but with an enlarged belly.”

Pictured is a dog with hypothyroidism.

– the accumulation of a large amount of fluid (normally a few ml) in the abdominal cavity in dogs and cats is called ascites (in common people “dropsy”).It is possible to distinguish this condition from an increase in internal organs, obesity, sagging of the abdominal wall by the characteristic movement of fluid when the animal’s posture changes (see photo). Ultrasound confirms this symptom (ascites is not an independent diagnosis), without characterizing the type of fluid (blood, lymph, pus, inflammatory exudate or non-inflammatory transudate). To identify the cause of ascites, you will need a complete examination of the heart, liver, kidneys, exclusion of cancer. Less commonly, the process is associated with other diseases, for example, peritonitis, helminthic invasion, or serious errors in the diet – excess sodium, lack of protein.Be sure to take ascites fluid for analysis. Pumping fluid is recommended only in cases of significant deterioration in the quality of life, shortness of breath, difficulty in defecation, because with it, a large amount of protein is lost and, as a rule, it quickly accumulates again (if the cause is not eliminated).

In chronic renal failure and other conditions accompanied by a significant loss of protein, possibly a combination of ascites with peripheral edema (ie, in the area of ​​the paws, muzzle). Also, during the examination, the presence of fluid in the chest cavity (hydrothorax) is checked.

During the examination, you will need clinical and biochemical blood tests, an analysis of ascites fluid, a general urine test, an ultrasound or X-ray.

In the photo there is a dog with ascites. Fluid overflow when posture changes is characteristic.

Feline viral peritonitis is one of the most common causes of fluid accumulation and, as a result, an increase in the size of the abdomen in cats. This infection is caused by a coronavirus, and fluid accumulation in the abdominal / chest cavity is one form of its manifestation (possibly asymptomatic or “dry” – no effusion).As a rule, the disease is accompanied by anorexia (refusal to eat) and fever. Most often, pedigree and young animals up to 2 years old get sick, especially from large nurseries participating in exhibitions. The prognosis is almost always unfavorable. For the diagnosis, examination data, medical history, general analysis of effusion fluid and PCR for coronavirus are taken into account (but false positive and false negative results are possible due to the characteristics of the virus!). To choose the tactics of drug support for the animal, general and biochemical blood tests will be required.

In the photo a kitten with viral peritonitis

– in rare cases large hernias (especially in furry animals) can imitate an enlarged abdomen or look like a tumor. Congenital, traumatic hernias or suture failure during abdominal operations can reach significant sizes. The ability to reposition the contents, palpation of the hernial orifice, characteristic location, ultrasound and medical history usually make the diagnosis easy.Treatment for large hernias is only operative.

In the photo a dog with an umbilical hernia

– under a frequent complaint of sagging “something” (“bags”, tumors, “fat tail”) in the lower abdomen in cats hides the problem of excess weight or strong elasticity of the skin , weakness of the abdominal wall. If classic obesity is not in doubt among owners, then local sagging of the skin with a fat layer in the groin area in Sphynxes, British and other cats (more noticeable on short-haired cats, see.photo) is often seen “suddenly”, despite the gradual appearance. The problem is rather cosmetic, but an increase in physical activity and weight stabilization are recommended to regress this phenomenon. It is important, at the slightest doubt, to show the animal to the doctor in order to differentiate the “fat tail” from hernias, tumors and other pathological conditions.

Sagging skin in the groin area of ​​a cat

– it is extremely important to quickly and accurately diagnose an enlarged abdomen in small kittens and puppies .The most frequent diagnosis, which “by eye” is put by the owners and members of the forum in such cases – “worms” . Nevertheless, congenital heart defects will in the same way be manifested by lethargy, anemia, external thinness with an enlarged tummy. It is necessary BEFORE aggressive anthelmintic therapy to exclude cardio diseases in order to avoid a serious deterioration of the condition!

– other causes of abdominal enlargement are less common – due to flatulence or stagnation of feces (megacolon), bladder rupture or delayed emptying, large tumors in the abdominal cavity – these conditions are usually easier to diagnose due to a “bright” medical history and characteristic data when probing an animal.An ultrasound or x-ray can help confirm the diagnosis.

What you SHOULD do:

– in all cases of abdominal enlargement, you need to see a doctor, regardless of the age of the animal – there are no options for “dissolving by itself”!

– the more rapidly the abdomen has increased, the more urgent the visit to the doctor should be. With a simultaneous significant deterioration in health, it is necessary to go immediately to the clinic, where it is possible to conduct an ultrasound / X-ray and, if necessary, surgery.

– for self-control of the amount of fluid in the abdominal cavity, you can use weighing + measurement of the volume of the abdomen with a measuring tape.Nevertheless, the general state of the animal and the degree of tension of the abdominal wall, and not weight / volume, are of primary importance when choosing a treatment tactics.

What NOT to do:

to give diuretics without permission for ascites – firstly, they work only on normally hydrated animals (not dehydrated), otherwise they act weakly or significantly worsen the patient’s condition; second, they require an understanding of the cause of the disease.

without an urgent need to remove (especially repeatedly) ascites fluid . This leads to additional protein loss and can worsen the condition (if hypoproteinemia is the cause).

At the same time, if fluid accumulates quickly and in large quantities, then without timely removal, the outcome will be unfavorable due to dysfunction of internal organs, difficulty breathing and heart function. The final decision is made by the doctor taking into account all the circumstances (an important criterion is the pronounced tension of the abdominal wall) and the cause of the disease.

to put up with endocrine diseases and not to cure them , because it is expensive, lifelong, “does not seem to suffer much”, “is already so old”, etc. Despite the fact that there are difficult situations where the treatment does not give 100% of the result, in most cases the effect of the treatment is very pleasing to the owners – the condition of the coat improves significantly, the pet becomes more active, the wounds heal better, the stomach tightens – the animal looks younger.

– be very careful about conservative treatment of pyometra (purulent inflammation of the uterus) with a closed cervix .Even with an open form (the possibility of pus coming out) and the external success of antibiotic treatment, relapses of the disease are very frequent. In general, early removal of the affected organ (after stabilization of the state) allows avoiding the dire consequences of severe intoxication of the body and the threat of peritonitis due to rupture of an enlarged uterus.

– consider all cases of abdominal enlargement in puppies and kittens as “helminthic invasion” or “flatulence”, and, accordingly, independently treat with anthelmintics or Espumisan.Self-medication and underdiagnosis are dangerous at any age, especially in babies!

What residents of cities in the north of the region complain about to Governor Kuyvashev on Instagram | News

Yesterday, August 11, the governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Yevgeny Kuyvashev, published a post on the social network Instagram in which he announced a trip to the cities of the north of the region.

Evgeny Vladimirovich urged residents of Ivdel, Severouralsk, Krasnoturinsk, Karpinsk, Serov, Novaya Lyalya, Garey to write in comments under the post about problems in cities.
During the day, the post received more than 270 comments. Many of them were left by residents of Serov, Krasnoturyinsk, Severouralsk, Karpinsk and neighboring cities.
We made a sample to show what the townspeople complain about to the governor. We have kept the copyright spelling and punctuation.


esaulkova_mari : We kindly ask you to help create a volleyball section in Serov.
molozinov : There is a microdistrict in Serov. Nadezhdinsky, in this microdistrict, land has been issued for large families since 2015, but as of 2021, there are no roads in this area.I have contacted the administration more than once, but I get a formal reply that there are no plans to backfill the roads. I sent you the specifics of the situation in private messages with the administration’s responses to my letters.
tsiondmitrii : We ask you to sort out the multimillion-dollar debts of the hospital in Serov to drug suppliers. Debts can lead to supply interruptions and disruption of treatment in a pandemic.
yana.skrynnik : Serov. Allocate funds to build a gym at School 11.
mawmaw103 : Get the truth firsthand. G. Serov. Over the past three years, the Serov Ferroalloy Plant has indexed wages by 3%. 1% per year … This was done after the intervention of the prosecutor’s office. Workers are being dismissed en masse from the Plant, the stoves are standing still. Put us in order. The bosses do not go to contact about salaries. Zp Locksmith or electrician about 22t.r. And this is in the Hot Workshops. everyone is running. Young people do not go to work for a penny. Fit into Magnets and Coins.Good specialists leave the enterprise, who have the opportunity, they leave for other areas. The plant goes out. Help me please. There are thousands of us working here …
samsonova1471 : The city of Serov, medicine is a nightmare, good specialists are fleeing from our city, since there are no irreplaceable ones, as they say, but in fact the saying does not work for Serov. A terrible situation with ecology all the time our city is in smog from a burning landfill, but what about Rifey, how much can you charge for garbage, already a million factories can be built to process garbage for the amount that people pay every month, but in fact every yard has garbage tanks, unsanitary conditions and plus we are poisoned by a burning landfill.Every three years, Preobrazhensky Square is rebuilt for what? When there are many remote neighborhoods in the city that need playgrounds and beautification.
zigerbye : The city of Serov, the village of Vyatchino (not high-quality water, yellow and Swamp), the city administration spoke about the implementation of a water purification project for 2021, but this year it turns out that we have flown by. People poison their bodies every day, while others ride with barrels of water in 2021 …


aleksandra_shmyrova: When the new school building is built 2.Children are forced to study at another school for 3 years. A year ago, the school was demolished, but they are not going to build it! Help resolve this issue.
tamaralosk11 : When will the water pipeline be built, did they start building in 2014, or not wait?
anastasyavavilova : KRASNOTURYINSK !!!! Evgeny Vladimirovich, good evening, please stop by, see what kind of progress in the construction of a new school # 2 in the city, we beg for help, the children go far. Instead of a new school, there is now a vacant lot, a trash can and a dog walking area
stepanida_arkadievna : We kindly ask you to pay attention to health care and housing and communal services in the city of Krasnoturinsk. You cannot take a coupon to the specialists who are in the clinic. This can be seen on the website of the registrar 96. ru. The quality of housing and communal services is deteriorating every year, and the cost of these same services is increasing every year. Agree, this is nonsense. Maybe it’s time to introduce quality criteria before adding value? Lighting problems on the streets. The white nights are over, but the lighting is still gone.But in our city people work in shifts.
alenaaleksandrovna3 : Hello, I am very worried about the construction of school number 2 in Krasnoturinsk, children are very far to walk, and it is not very convenient for two schools in the same building.
mila_likee_mila : KRASNOTURYINSK !!!! Evgeny Vladimirovich, hello.I would like to know when there will be funding for the construction of SCHOOL # 2. Children have been attending school 3 km from home for a year. And many have disabled children, first graders and there is no way to see them off and pick them up. SCARY for the children. WHEN??? There is no specificity to this question.


romik_idrisov: Medicine in SEVEROURALSK at ‘ZERO’ !!!!!!!! I applied to the administration about the replacement of windows in kindergarten N5, the first building in the village of Cheryomukhovo, the result is zero, and soon winter children will freeze again. This is perhaps the only kindergarten in the NORTH OF SVERDLOVSK REGION WHICH IS WITHOUT “WINDOWS AND DOORS”.Shipulin also came to us to him, too, the result was not present. I hope you will not just visit the north of the Sverdlovsk region for a tick.
reginasteperenkova : Severouralsk medical problems, the village of Third Severny has been completely forgotten by the administration, the problem with the roads, the sidewalks are in a bad state, the sheds are destroyed, the house collapsed in the middle of the village has not been removed for more than three years !!! Our kids don’t have a normal playground either !!! We will be glad to your visit, and if you pay attention to our village.
elia_st91 : The city of Severouralsk was included in the “five-year development plan for the Sverdlovsk region” in terms of the construction of a small ice arena, but there is still no such arena. There is no material base for playing sports, parents buy an expensive uniform at their own expense. The administration does not support it in any way.
gabdrahmanova_ev : The city of SEVEROURALSK! So many comments about the low level of MEDICAL SERVICE! We ask, please, to “visit” the administration of this city, the head physician! People do not receive free medical care guaranteed by the state! You can’t get to the specialists, neither to children, nor to adults! People are forced to go to paid clinics, where all the same specialists work, who cannot be visited for free! In order not to “gossip”, I want to give a concrete example of how the children’s medical commission for age at MADOU 3 was held: one therapist came, wrote opinions on all specialists, most likely without the appropriate qualifications and that’s it! No tests, no examination by a neurologist, ENT, ophthalmologist…. Nothing! I just wrote conclusions on old records! And this is just one of the many problems of this urban district! Also, I would like you, for all your busyness, to drive along the road through the village of Bayanovka, the area has its own granodiorite mining plant, and in the area there is a road in cobblestones and in pits !!!
popovatatiana6572 : Dear Evgeny Vladimirovich, we kindly ask you to pay attention to healthcare in the city of Severouralsk. It becomes scary to imagine your future and the future of your children without specialists in our medicine.There is a shortage of personnel in the children’s clinic. There has been no neurologist for several years. Life is also not easier for the adult population, because the picture in the hospital is very sad … people are in despair … we are forced to wander around other cities of the Sverdlovsk region in search of medical assistance. Although our city is good.
tip_svu : There are big problems with medical personnel in the city! The doctors are leaving. And return the train, it is simply impossible without it!
ekabu_photo : PLEASE! Visit the village of Pokrovsk-Uralsky (which is located near Severouralsk) where the inhabitants suffocate from the dust that comes from the Uralshcheben plant located here every year.Local residents have been trying to reach out to the authorities for a long time, trying to explain that it is becoming unsafe to live on the territory of the village !!!! The ecology does not allow growing healthy agricultural products and breathing fresh air. The plant must be closed or moved far outside the village. Ask local residents what layer of dust they daily wash from their windows and houses. What can we say about our lungs, what is going on in them? We are already tired of this outrage.
julia_ekb_ : Please pay attention to medicine in Severouralsk.Doctors are sorely lacking. The oncologist is finalizing the last days and leaves. To deliver chemotherapy to cancer patients, you have to wait in line and go to Karpinsk or Krasnoturyinsk. Help my sick father. In oncology in ECB lay, sent to the registration. For 3 months they have not received any treatment. Dad, I love you and I can’t live without you …
sergeiroshchin19 : Please, pay attention to the problems of the city of Severouralsk, of which there are a sufficient number. One of the main problems is healthcare.There are no doctors. And those who are leaving. It is rather difficult to attract new specialists to our territory: who will go to a single-industry city whose population is getting smaller and smaller every year? I think that even the provision of service apartments will not help much to solve this problem. Probably, there is a solution – the integrated development of the urban district. This is not only the improvement of public areas, the repair of roads, courtyards, but also the solution of a number of other issues: the opening of new large production facilities, the solution of transport accessibility of the northern district of the Sverdlovsk region (train, small aircraft), the construction of sports and recreation complexes (about three years ago they said that UMMC plans to build an indoor skating rink here, but for some reason it did not go beyond words), the opening of a shopping and entertainment center (many residents of our city go to shopping centers in neighboring cities, or to Yekaterinburg, and this could be additional taxes on income-generating activities to the budget of our city district).Hope for your help.
_olgaa1973 : A kindergarten was closed in the city center of Severouralsk. Everything will be destroyed as usual now, then they will be rebuilt. Although the groups in other kindergartens are overcrowded, this kindergarten turned out to be superfluous. Optimization!!!
verah559 : It’s scary to live in Severouralsk. There are practically no doctors left. The city administration does nothing to attract doctors and create conditions for work.
lukashevich5123 : Severouralsk, the Third Severny settlement, sidewalks where they are required are destroyed, the SGO administration ignore the requests of residents, 140 people asked to restore the sidewalks along which children go to school, but all to no avail, the playground near the Rovesnik dk poses a threat to the lives of children, every year They patch it up and in a week it is in the same condition as it was, they do not fulfill the promised painting of the playground, they replied that we will dismantle everything for you there, soon we will be left without a single playground, the children will go to school on the street.Kalinin on the carriageway without lighting! The SGO administration did not give a damn about the village of Third North, we have many large families and the population of the village is about 1600 residents and there is not even a safe playground, there are no sidewalks of storm drains, but in the spring we all walk along the roads, since the sidewalks are flooded, the head of the village is cheating without a conscience, it’s just that the playground was painted, and even there it didn’t smell of paint, please pay attention to the village of Third Severny, but better personally make sure that our administration is only on paper and in the city center everything is fine, but in fact we are surviving here


novoselovau : In our townKarpinsk, there is no pediatric dentist !!! Children suffer, accept only with acute pain. There are no coupons in the neighboring town of Krasnoturyinsk, there are many of their patients. People come to us and from Volchansk. Solve the issue, please !!! Children will be left without teeth, not everyone can take them to a neighboring city for a fee.
dreams_big20 : Many doctors are absent from Karpinsk. For example, there are no therapists in dentistry, and a pediatric dentist has been absent for a year already. Lack of doctors (
svetlana.budakova_ : Karpinsk !!! Problems with the school.For 2 years we have been trying to get a school for registration, but to no avail. I wrote to you in more detail in the directive.
_bodrov_dima_ : @evgenykuyvashev Karpinsk. Evgeny Vladimirovich, help the development of Motocross Karpinsk Karpinsk-Moto! (from 2017 to the present to a dead end) At the local level, the situation is a dead end, the head of the city Klopov A.A. considers it inexpedient to revive the motorcycle section for motocross! At the regional level, P.V. Krekov stopped the correspondence of my appeals to the government! Sports Minister Rapoport L.And he said figure it out at the local level! DOSAAF Vorobkalo A.A believes that Karpinsk is a village for what motorcycles! Prein E.Yu unsubscribed look for sponsors! AV Shipulin said look for sponsors! Dead end (((Your help is needed!
bashamarishka : Medicine, stray dogs, garbage – Karpinsk


scheka_4393 : Dear Evgeny Vladimirovich! We ask you to help with the road to the village of Gari, otherwise large stones were poured and driving along it is just a problem and no further work is being done! And about medicine, I’d rather not say anything, there are no words, in Serov there is also NO, they ruined my mother and live peacefully !!!


pakhomova8688 : The city of Ivdel is my Motherland, but what is happening to the city now is a big trouble !!! Closing hospitals, cutting honey.staff, people, in order to make elementary analyzes, are forced to go to nearby cities, and even to Yekaterinburg. The village of Burmantovo has been abandoned, people live, or rather survive, without light, communication, not to mention medical assistance. And what a wonderful village it was !!! Help, if you can, of course.
yelena_shishkina : G. Ivdel, p. Pelym, there is absolutely no medicine, all patients are taken to Krasnoturinsk, and this is 350 km !!! Many people are simply not transported, and they die along the way! My parents living in Pelym cannot seek help from a doctor, he is simply not there! There is a hospital building, and what is more, it is very good, but the local authorities destroyed it.Please pay attention to this problem.
anastasyiachiglintseva : I am an ivdelian. Now my mother and sister live in Ivdel with a family, they live in a private sector on the street. March 8. There is no normal pedestrian walkway. The one that goes along the road through the swamp in the spring drowns and almost completely floods. My sister has a small child, like other neighbors with a stroller, it is impossible to drive there. There is also no street lighting on the streets in the private sector; in winter, children go to school in the dark, and even through the thickets, which local officials call the sidewalk.Evgeny Vladimirovich, if you are in Ivdel, walk from Frunze Street to Pochtovaya Street is a nightmare. By car on the road, everything is fine and beautiful, but on foot is a whole quest. So in the city, in the private sector, there are completely no conditions for the movement of disabled people and baby carriages, ramps were not made during road repairs, and where they are not followed any standards, it is difficult to walk with their feet, and it is impossible for people to walk on the roadway in a wheelchair. Pay attention to the pedestrian crossing of Mekhanoshina street in the area of ​​st.Lenin. The height of the crossing is about 50 cm, but there is no ramp. Crossing the size not in the area of ​​the Medvedev embankment generally rests against the fence. And this situation is in the entire private sector, everything is beautiful along the guest route, the squares are also wonderful – this is done for you and for the report, but for us, for the residents, unfortunately nothing (((((turn off the guest route, take a walk … and Of course, the problem of gasification of the private sector … In a city through which thousands of cubic meters of gas pass every hour, sitting without gas is at least strange.Former Ivdel women come to us from abroad and are always surprised at Russian insanity. Thanks.
pankovich.lenochka : Hello, you can also take a ride to the villages, the road is terrible there .. I myself live in the village of Ous and it is not possible to drive … There is no central TV, all residents intend to buy plates. Especially who are elderly ..

Novaya Lyalya, Lobva

krottisha: Please pay attention to the hospital in Novaya Lyala. Faced with a problem related to covid – doctors simply refused to come, saying that doctors are people too and want to rest on weekends.It’s like people don’t get sick on weekends. At the hospital’s registry, specialists cannot answer a single question, all questions have to be resolved through a single service 112. Vaccination against covid is poorly organized. I really liked the idea of ​​vaccination in Yekaterinburg in shopping centers, it would be nice to organize such days in Novaya Lala (…)
In addition, in Novaya Lyala there is neither a maternity hospital nor a morgue, and soon there will be no hospital, probably.
rom190 : @evgenykuyvashev, help pzhl with the construction of an indoor ice arena in Novaya Lyala! So that children can skate and play hockey all year round.
olga10. You have a photo in direct.
ksenia_yakimova96 : In the city of Novaya Lyalya, there are absolutely no trash cans in the city. Walking around the city, having eaten, for example, ice cream, there is nowhere to throw away the stick and the packaging. People throw everything on the road. Children are not taught not to throw garbage, as there is not a single trash can around.Not all adults, let alone children, carry garbage home or to the nearest trash can. All around there are dumps, garbage … wherever you look, plastic, bags, cigarette packages, etc. families. Ask how they survive there?
vladimirchurin1983 : In Novaya Lyala, after one o’clock in the morning, the lights are turned off throughout the city, as you think is the norm.
olga10.24 : Good afternoon. Lobva village, st. Railway, no street lighting. There were lanterns installed by residents and they were cut off in the spring.
oksana_vladimirovna_2018 : We live in the 21st century, and in the city of Novaya Lyalya, in the residential sector (timber industry, terebilovka, construction) there is still no high-speed Internet, people use mobile devices as a modem. Also at night there is no lighting throughout the city, people go to the bus station with flashlights.


prilezhaeva: We went to Verkhoturye the other day, there is practically no communication along the entire route, well, how is it, it’s not the Stone Age….
