Dogs don t get hemmorhoids like humans, but they can develop hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, which is a serious life-threatening condition of bleeding into the intestines. These dogs present with bloody diarrhea and vomiting, and act very sick because they are. Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, or HGE for short, is treated with antibiotics, an anti-emetic, a bland diet, and fluid therapy: these dogs are usually hospitalized for a day or two.
P Often, the cause of HGE goes undetermined, but getting into the garbage, eating something they shouldn t, or exposure to infectious disease such as parvo virus, giardia, and leptospirosis can be prime causes. You can lower your dog s risk of developing HGE by keeping him away from the garbage, minimizing fatty table scraps, keeping your dog from drinking out of contaminated ponds, lakes or rivers, Pand getting your dog vaccinted against parvovirus and leptospirosis.
Canine ulcerative or mucus.
Proctitis is the inflammation of a dog s anus and the rectal lining. Each stool evacuation can irritate the inflamed colon and rectum tissue and cause it to tear. The irritation can lead to vomiting and weight loss from lack of appetite. Both colitis and proctitis can be caused from parasites in the rectum or intestines; a bacterial, fungal or algae infection; or from eating an abrasive object that causes intestinal trauma.
Treatment may include hospitalization of your pet to rehydrate him if he is dehydrated from excessive diarrhea. If the inflammation is sudden and severe, food may be withheld for 24 to 48 hours so the colon can relax. If your veterinarian discovers scar tissue with an X-ray, he will surgically remove the worst scarred segments of the colon.
