We know that most people consider their pets to be a member of their family. That is why we want to make sure that every pet has access to high-quality healthcare. While vaccinations and annual exams are very important, we know that pets can also have acute care problems from time to time as well. One of the most common issues that we see come through our door has to do with vomit and diarrhea. We want to ensure that everyone in the Surrey, Delta, and Langley Township areas understands some of the most common causes of vomiting and diarrhea. Then, trust a veterinarian from Grandview Animal Hospital to treat your pet with the care and compassion that he or she deserves.
The Common Causes of Vomiting and Diarrhea
There are several common causes of vomiting and diarrhea. One of the most common is stress. When pets arrive in a new environment, it will take a while for them to get used to this. Pets may manifest their stress through vomiting and diarrhea. In addition, pets can also contract a stomach bug, just like humans. This can cause a viral illness that may take some time to get over. Finally, pets are also capable of eating things that they shouldn't. Ingestions and poisoning events are common causes of vomiting and diarrhea as well. Trust us to figure out why your pet is vomiting.
Treatment of Vomit and Diarrhea
It is also important to treat vomiting and diarrhea to prevent pets from getting dehydrated. We will provide your pets with IV fluids and medicine if necessary to ensure that they do not get dehydrated. Of course, we are also going to treat the cause of the illness as well. This will help your pet recover as quickly as possible. in the case of ingestion, we can also provide an antidote if this is needed. Please rely on us to get your pet on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.
