How to Deal With Gastritis When Your Dog Suffers From It

Gastritis is an inflammation of the lining of the stomach. It is one of the most common digestive problems of dogs.


The dog vomits yellow mucous material without evidence of food remnants.

While the general well-being of the dog does not appear to be affected, there may be reduced appetite.

The animal is seen eating more grass than normal, and belching is more frequent.

In addition, the tongue may show a dirty gray layer, thirst is increased, so is salivation, and trembling is not uncommon.

If diarrhea and vomiting appear regularly over an extended period, it can be assumed that a chronic stomach problem exists.

Gastritis in Dog


Frequently diagnosed causes of gastritis are spoiled food, poisoning, stress or toxic impact on the gastric mucosa.

Winter brings another cause, that of eating snow.

Food that is too hot or too cold, as well as access to chemicals, can also cause gastritis.  Gastritis can also be a symptom that is part of another disease, for example congestive heart failure, liver disorders or infectious diseases such as distemper or Leptospirosis Uremic disease may also be accompanied by gastritis.

When dogs lick inflamed wounds containing pus the gastric mucosa can also become irritated.


Prevent your dog from licking chemicals or infected wounds.

Check the expiration dates of foods and medications.

Make sure that your dog gets plenty of rest after running and rough play.

Do not allow your dog to eat snow.

Cheek the temperature of the food you are feeding your dog. Prepare a specific diet.

Important: Try to prevent any stress for your dog at this time!

  • Home Remedies

You can give your dog either Gastricumeel tablets or Cosmochema gastrointestinal drops. As soon as the symptoms recede, give your patient mucosa comp. ampoules orally.

Bach Flowers

If your animal appears depressed or sad due to its illness, you can revitalize it with hornbeam and mustard. To enhance internal cleansing, give the dog crab apple.

When to Consult a Veterinarian

If the condition has not responded to your treatment after two or three days you should get the underlying cause evaluated and diagnosed by a veterinarian trained in holistic techniques.

What to Expect

Homeopathic remedies will reestablish a normal physiological stomach function, while the use of Nosodes will aid in the elimination of toxins.  You will be asked to continue home treatments by using color therapy.
