Most patients may be treated on an outpatient basis. Your veterinarian will guide you in planning a low-fat, highly digestible diet for your dog during the treatment and recovery process, along with the prescribed antibiotics. If your dog has decreased blood cobalamin levels (due to lack of intestinal absorption), cobalamin (vitamin B12) supplements will be prescribed until levels have increased to a normal level.
During the recovery, feed your dog a low-fat, low stress, highly digestible diet. Your veterinarian will schedule follow-up appointments with you for your dog to monitor the diarrhea until it has resolved.
