Common Causes of Vomiting and Diarrhea

One of the most common issues we see in our clinic is issues related to vomiting and diarrhea. There are a number of reasons why a pet might come down with these GI symptoms. First, the pet might have picked up a stomach virus from somewhere. Similar to people, viruses are a common cause of vomiting and diarrhea. In other cases, the pet might have eaten something it shouldn't have, leading to a form of poisoning. Finally, some pets experience these symptoms due to stress. Similar to people, some situations can trigger these symptoms. Fortunately, there are reliable medical providers who can help.
