Colonic Ulcer in Dogs




Your dog's outpatient medical management will include changing the diet to include moderately fermentable fiber supplementation. Your veterinarian will advise you of the possibility of progressive disease and recurrence and may prescribe antimicrobials and anti-inflammatory drugs.


Living and Management


Clinical signs and body weight should be monitored every week to two weeks initially. Depending on the outcome, your dog may need ongoing antibiotic therapy.
