Gut Infections in Cats and Dogs


Over the last few years, we have noticed an increasing incidence of gut infections in dogs and cats. We now see severe gut infections almost daily.
Infections caused by Giardia, Campylobacter, and Salmonella are not uncommon and are transferable to humans.
Pets can be infected by contaminated water in dog exercise areas or when walking through public areas where people picnic and leave food scraps.
Infection can also happen in the home by feeding raw poultry. If cooked or raw poultry has been sitting in the fridge for 2 or 3 days, bin it, and do not feed it to your pet. NEVER feed raw poultry to your cat or dog.
If your pet has been vomiting and / or had diarrhoea for more than 24 hours make an appointment to have them checked.
