A common health problem for pets is that of a sensitive stomach. Vomit and diarrhea are never fun to clean up and especially not fun to step in when you don’t see it. Sometimes it’s just a rare occurrence and other times it can become a real problem. But there are some very good reasons for this pet health problem and solutions that are simple. As always, if something seems abnormal, consult your veterinarian first, and if you need to clean up after your pets, here are some useful pet odor removal resources to research [1][2][3][4][5]

One of the most common issues when it comes to a sensitive stomach is diet. Some animals have an allergy or can develop an allergy to certain food ingredients at any age. The first thing to realize is that there is a difference between a food allergy and a food intolerance. A food allergy causes itching and scratching as it would in humans.

Food intolerance causes the vomiting and diarrhea. Both can be caused from common ingredients in pet foods. Some of these ingredients include beef, lamb, seafood, corn, soy, dairy products, and wheat gluten. Since these are common ingredients in pet foods, it can be hard trying to eliminate these from their diet.

The first thing to try is finding a food that contains ingredients that your animal hasn’t ever had or been exposed to, for example, maybe potato or venison (you can find these in certain pet foods on the market). The second thing to try is a pet food that has minimalized the offending ingredient to such a small amount, that it may no longer cause a reaction. Some people even resort to cooking homemade meals for their pets. And if all else fails, call your vet and they can provide or recommend a food that can work for your pet.

Another common sensitive stomach issue is that reserved only for cats; hairballs. Hairballs are another one of those gross things that pet owners just don’t want to have to clean up. There are a few things you can try in helping your cat eliminate the hairballs. One of the best things to do is constantly brush your cat. Cats are very clean animals and seem to be always cleaning themselves. You can help them keep from swallowing all that hair simply by brushing them, and trust me they will love being brushed! I would also recommend bathing them at least once every month or two just to get all that excess hair and keep any pesky parasites from getting on kitty’s fur. There are also treats and cat foods that aid in hairball control. You can also buy an over the counter paste that helps control hairballs as well. If nothing seems to work, try consulting your veterinarian.

It’s never fun when your pet isn’t feeling good and you’re having to clean up the mess. Always make sure you seek immediate help if the problem becomes severe. A lot of pets can become dehydrated if they are constantly vomiting or having diarrhea. Consult your veterinarian if you’re ever unsure. I hope these tips help and you can get your pet back to normal health!
