  • One of the most disturbing, embarrassing and often disgusting disorders a pet can develop is diarrhea.

    Runny stools can distress more than your pet’s tummy. Your pet becomes upset because it had an accident, often on a favorite rug or bedspread. You get agitated because you’ve got to clean up the mess. Many times, you feel helpless and don’t know what to do next. And, if your luck is like mine, this tends to happen on the weekend when most veterinary clinics are closed.
