The difference between intestinal dysbiosis and diarrhea

In your pet’s intestine many metabolic processes take place which

  • –  finish the  digestion (in the upper part of the intestine)
  • –  allow  the reabsorption of nutrients and water.

 

The digestive system performs very important tasks for the general preservation of the balance of the entire organism, which are obviously not limited only  to the digestion of food.

 

In fact, 3 main properties can be considered:

  • – Digestion and absorption of food
  • – Emuntorial capacity
  • – Line of immune defense of the body.

 

 

To  perform these functions well  the intestine must be in balance or in eubiosis, therefore it must be:

  • – well populated that means it needs to have many microorganisms
  • – biodiversified  with many microorganisms with different functions.

 

However, this balance can be altered on numerous occasions such as:

  • – temperature (air conditioning in summer and heating in winter, when dog changes from one environment to the other)
  •  – wrong feeding
  • – boarding holidays for pets
  • – voyage
  • – emotional stress (of whatever nature it is)
  • – use of medicines (antibiotics)
  • – diarrhea

 

In this case we are talking about dysbiosis.

 

Dysbiosis is a condition in which the balance between beneficial and potentially harmful bacteria present in the gastrointestinal tract is altered, favoring the growth of harmful bacteria.

 

Dysbiosis can cause a number of problems such as:

  • – inflammation,
  • – allergies
  • – and diarrhea among them.

So we talk about dysbiosis when this balance is broken. A situation of inflammation and dysbiosis can be created that causes symptoms such as diarrhea.

 

Diarrhea (the increased frequency of liquid or semi-liquid stools) in dogs and cats is an occurrence that can have numerous causes such as:

  • – viral/bacterial infections (particularly in puppies)
  • -parasitic infections
  • – dietary errors (sudden changes in diet)
  • – climatic factors such as cold snaps (temperature changes)
  • – ingestion of improper materials (ingestion of things not intended for food, such as sea water for example)
  • – stress (of whatever nature it is)

 

Diarrhea is a way that the body has to defend itself from attacks or changes that occur in the intestine due to the causes we have just listed.

So when your pet has diarrhea, his intestine is reacting to a condition of loss of balance i.e. dysbiosis.

In summary, dysentery is always an episode of intestinal dysbiosis. While an intestine can be in dysbiosis even if it doesn’t necessarily have dysentery.

 

During acute diarrhea, water is the most important nutrient due to potential dehydration due to excessive fluid and electrolyte losses. For this reason it is very important to make plenty of water available to the animal, for the recovery of lost liquids.

 

Equally important becomes the integration, at high concentrations, of electrolytes such as sodium and potassium. Electrolytes are in fact important regulators of water balance, managing the flow of liquids to and from the cells. Lactoadapt STOP contains sodium chloride, potassium chloride and potassium phosphate in order to guarantee the integration of these electrolytes.

 

Instead the LactoAdapt with its pre and pro biotic formulation can restore the correct intestinal balance – eubiosis. It is recommended to administer it for at least three weeks.

 

A good practice is to administer LactoAdapt when situations such as those listed above arise, which can alter the intestinal balance. We remind you that the central unit of the immune system has its seat in your pet’s intestine.

 

While in the case of diarrhea we recommend the use of the LactoAdapt STOP together with the LactoAdapt.

In cases of diarrhea it is still important to visit your trusted veterinarian who will be able to advise you adequately.

Good digestion affects the health and functioning of the entire organism

Nutrition is essential for the health of the animal. Suitable foods should be introduced through food: what is physiological for the animal’s body. These foods are broken down  into micronutrients through the process of digestion where the food is digested into smaller molecules that the body can absorb and use. Digestion, in addition to being  a very important process, is also a process that constantly occurs in the animal’s body. Good digestion is important: to nourish the cells with all the necessary […]
