Canine Coronavirus, also known as CCoV, is a viral infection of the intestines. This disease is short-lived and typically not fatal, but causes abdominal discomfort and pain for a few days. There are different types of coronavirus that each infect different animal species.
Common types of internal parasites that can infect turtles include nematodes, tapeworms, flukes and flagellate organisms.
Trichomoniasis is contagious disease in birds, caused by the protozoan Trichomonas gallinae. It is transmitted through direct contact and therefore in birds, it can spread easily. Infection with this species of Thrichomona is exclusive to birds and cannot affect humans.
Proventricular Dilatation Disease (PDD) is an incurable disease that affects the gastrointestinal and neurological systems of a variety of bird species. Proventricular Dilatation Disease (PDD) was originally called “Macaw Wasting Disease” and was first recognized and described in 1978.
Gout is a disorder where high quantities of uric acid are deposited in different tissues. It can cause kidney damage, rigid toes, swollen joints and neurological problems.
Giardiasis is caused by infection with the protozoan Giardia. It lives in the intestinal tract of the bird after entering through the drinking water.
Blood in the feces is a common finding in many conditions which range in severity from mild to life-threatening. In most cases, bleeding is due to conditions of the gastrointestinal tract itself, such as injuries, tumors, infectious diseases, or inflammation.
Acid, or Gastric reflux (GR) is defined as the movement of gastric secretions from the stomach into the esophagus.
Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas. The pancreas performs the vital functions of secreting digestive enzymes that break down nutrients in the intestines and regulating blood sugar levels.
Pancreatitis refers to inflammation of the pancreas, which is a common digestive disease of cats.
Diarrhea, or loose/watery stool, is a common symptom of many conditions in dogs which range from transient and non-serious to life-threatening. Diarrhea ranges in form and severity, and may contain blood, mucus, fat, visible parasites, or foreign matter.
Diarrhea is the occurrence of loose, watery stools caused by a gastrointestinal issue. This is a common symptom of a number of disorders in cats
Dogs are not selective about what they eat compared to humans, and their indiscretion often leads to gastrointestinal symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, and flatulence.
Seasonal allergies are a common condition in dogs. Most seasonal allergy symptoms in dogs result from exposure to flea saliva and/or pollen.
Gastroenteritis is a general term referring to inflammation of the stomach and intestines that presents as an “upset stomach” characterized by vomiting, appetite loss, and diarrhea.
Canine allergies are common and occur when the immune system overreacts to allergens the dog is exposed to.
Motion sickness (also known as car sickness) is when a dog shows signs of nausea and/or vomiting as a result of being in motion outside of their control.
Gastritis is the inflammation of the lining of the stomach. It can be either acute or chronic.
The colon or large intestine is the last part of the digestive tract. Colitis occurs when there is inflammation of the colon.
Gastritis is a general term referring to inflammation of the stomach. A specific diagnosis of gastritis is rarely relevant because it does not identify the underlying condition.
Dietary indiscretion occurs when a cat eats non-food items or food outside of its typical diet.
Megacolon is the dilation and dysfunction of the colon resulting in difficulty evacuating stool.
Whereas humans get sneezy and sniffly at certain times of the year, some cats get red, itchy skin and secondary skin infections for the same reason: seasonal allergies.
Vomiting is the act of forceful contraction of the abdominal muscles leading to the ejection of ingested material through the mouth.
Gastrointestinal blockages most commonly occur when a dog swallows a large, indigestible object. As the object moves through the gastrointestinal tract, it encounters progressively smaller tubes. Eventually, it becomes stuck, and blocks the flow of intestinal contents.
Enteritis refers to inflammation of the intestines, while gastroenteritis refers to inflammation of both the intestines and the stomach
A gastrointestinal (GI) foreign body obstruction is the result of ingesting a foreign object that is not able to pass through the body naturally.
Motion sickness is the feeling of nausea during land, sea, or air travel caused by excessive or unpredictable movement.
Vomiting is the involuntary expulsion of the contents of the stomach through the mouth and nose. It involves abdominal contractions and may produce bile.
