Gastritis in dogs can commonly sneak up on us as pet parents. The health condition refers to the inflammation of the stomach lining, which can cause discomfort and distress for our canine companions. Dog gastritis can be triggered by various factors, including dietary indiscretions, infections, or even stress, making it imperative to take proactive measures to support your furkiddo. 

Addressing Gastritis in Dogs Naturally

Understanding the signs of gastritis is vital for prompt intervention. Keep an eye out for symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, decreased appetite, and abdominal discomfort. If you notice these signs persisting or worsening, it’s time to consult your veterinarian to confirm if you’re dealing with gastritis in dogs or any other health issue.

Dog gastritis can be triggered by various factors, making it imperative to take proactive measures to support your furkiddo.

Always follow your vet’s advice and course of treatment. They may recommend medications or a special diet tailored to your pet’s needs. If you are interested in a home-cooked diet, our in-house veterinarian at NHV can help you.

In the meantime, there are several ways to provide comfort and support from home to your furry friend’s gastrointestinal health. Ensuring your pet stays well-hydrated is a great starting point. Dehydration can exacerbate gastrointestinal issues, so offer water regularly. 

Allowing your dog ample rest can also aid in the healing process. Stress can contribute to gastritis, so a calm environment is beneficial. NHV Lesstress and NHV Matricalm can also help your furry friend stay calm and stress-free in cases of gastritis caused by stress.

Diet plays a crucial role in managing and preventing gastritis. In most cases, these tips can go a long way:

Balanced and Easily Digestible Diet

Provide a well-balanced, easily digestible diet. This can be easier on the stomach during bouts of gastritis. High-quality pet food can go a long way in maintaining digestive health.

Regular Mealtimes to Help Prevent Gastritis in Dogs 

Establish a consistent feeding schedule. Avoid feeding your dog large amounts of food all at once, as this can strain their digestive system. Instead, consider feeding your dog smaller, more frequent meals.

Avoid Table Scraps and Human Food 

Limit your dog’s access to table scraps and human food. Reduce the fat content and avoid spicy foods, as these can exacerbate inflammation. Some foods, like onions, chocolate, and certain spices, can be toxic to dogs and cause even more serious symptoms.

Supplements that Support Gastritis in Dogs 

Nutritional supplements can also play an important role in proactively supporting your little one’s gastrointestinal health or addressing the uncomfortable symptoms of gastritis in dogs. These are our main recommendations for natural gut support:

  • NHV Tumflora was specifically formulated to help soothe the stomach and intestines and improve nutrient absorption.
  • NHV Yucca can help with nausea, vomiting, pain, and inflammation caused by gastritis.
  • NHV Plantaeris can help your little one, especially when the episodes of gastritis are causing diarrhea. It helps to form healthy stools and reduce inflammation.
  • NHV Probiotic + Prebiotic can promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria.

As we navigate the wonderful world of pet parenting, let’s stay informed and proactive and shower our pets with the love and care they deserve. Let’s also commit to their ongoing well-being.
