Leaky Gut

Leaky gut is a digestive disorder that can cause a lot of problems for dogs, but it’s also something you can fix!

Leaky gut syndrome is a condition that affects the intestinal lining and the immune system. It’s characterized by the permeability of the gastrointestinal tract, which allows undigested food particles, bacteria, and other substances to pass through it into the bloodstream. The immune system then reacts to these substances as if they were foreign invaders and attacks them. This can cause a wide range of problems in dogs, including allergies and autoimmune diseases.

The symptoms of leaky gut syndrome in dogs include diarrhea or constipation, vomiting or regurgitation, poor appetite or weight loss, lethargy (tiredness), skin rashes, joint pain and stiffness, ear infections, skin infections (hot spots), ear infections/ear mites (ear infections), pneumonia (lung infections), yeast infections (yeast infections), autoimmune disorders (autoimmune diseases).

The best way to treat leaky gut in dogs is with a diet that’s high in fiber and low in sugar—it’ll help them poop more easily and keep everything moving through their system as it should be.
