I can only guess that the last time your pup had diarrhea, you expected it to be the last, right? Not only can it be extremely complicated, it can also be very expensive. Most pet owners will take their dogs to the vet or canine emergency room at the first sign of diarrhea. Most of the time, your pet’s upset stomach is usually due to a change in diet or perhaps some tasty garbage he found outside.

The advice for your dog’s diarrhea is to catch it as soon as possible. The sooner you detect it, the faster you can fix it. Also, your carpet cleaning bill may not be that high. I always try to focus on natural remedies as you never know when you might need something. Sometimes your vet may be closed and you just can’t get the medication you need, and that’s where holistic remedies come in. Many of the ingredients can be found at your local grocery store or pharmacy. Although this is a natural remedy if you notice blood in your dog’s diarrhea or vomiting along with the diarrhea, visit the vet or the emergency room as soon as possible.

Here are two very simple tips to help with your dog’s diarrhea.

Sweet potatoes

You may have heard in the past giving your pup boiled chicken and rice, and this is a good solution for an upset stomach. Although I have found that it is not as effective for diarrhea and can be quite expensive. So a better solution is to give your pup boiled, baked, or even steamed sweet potatoes. Believe it or not, your dog will love these and so will his stomach. Research has shown that the phytonutrients in sweet potatoes have an anti-inflammatory effect on the digestive tract. This will not only be a great natural remedy, but it is also very inexpensive.

Po Chai

The next remedy can be found in many health food stores, as well as online, and is called Po Chai. You will swear it is a miracle drug for your dog’s diarrhea. Po Chai will go to work on your dog’s intestines and “miraculously” correct any imbalance. Po Chai is available in small pills that come in 10 vials per box. For a dog up to 25 pounds, give 1 1/2 vials three times a day. For medium and large sized dogs, it is okay to give your dog a vial three times a day. You can expect to see results after administering the first vial. Usually you only need to treat it for one day.
