Milk intolerance, allergies, chronic pancreatitis, roundworms, colitis, infections or poisoning may all cause diarrhea. At the first sign of diarrhea, withhold food for 24 hours, then feed your pet a bland meal of rice and unseasoned hamburger or chicken. If diarrhea continues for longer than two days, consult your veterinarian. Painful or bloody diarrhea requires immediate attention.

A preparation made from slippery elm (Ulmus rubra) powder can soothe an irritated intestinal tract. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved it for this use for humans.
