Q. My dog was in his crate and just sprayed super thanks n diarrhea all over! What could this be?

Answered By

A. There are many reasons a dog can develop diarrhea, from eating unusual food or decayed garbage to many bacterial and viral diseases or even as a symptom of internal diseases such as Addisons disease. If there is any fever, lethargy, vomiting, reduced thirst or this persists for more than 8 hours you should arrange a full check up by your local vet. If all else is well, you can try feeding bland, low fat food in small meals every 4 hours to allow the gut to recover and repair.
