Pet Vomiting and Diarrhea

Pet Vomiting

Vomiting and Diarrhea are common signs of gastrointestinal upset in pets. There are many causes of the conditions. At New Hope Animal Hospital in Durham, NC, we take care of sick animals. Learn more about vomiting and diarrhea below.

Reasons for Pet Vomiting and Diarrhea

Vomiting and diarrhea are common signs of an inflamed and irritated stomach or intestines. While these are unpleasant, it is a way to rid your pet's body of waste or prevent an indigestible material from getting into their system. Diarrhea often presents itself when the indigestible material has made it through the body.

Other causes of these conditions include parasites and viruses or more severe conditions like cancer or organ problems. A veterinarian on our team can make the proper diagnosis once you come to our office.
