Vomit and Diarrhea FAQ's

Do Veterinarians Treat Vomiting and Diarrhea?

There are quite a few conditions that veterinarians treat regularly. Vomiting and diarrhea are certainly two conditions veterinarians treat frequently. Unfortunately, many things can cause your pet to become sick and experience these conditions.

Thankfully, many things that can cause these conditions are not necessarily severe. However, you should still bring your pet into our practice at Silicon Valley Pet in Santa Clara, CA. Our vets can look at your pet and recommend an excellent treatment plan. You can count on us. 


What Causes Vomiting and Diarrhea in Pets?

As previously mentioned, several factors can cause vomiting and diarrhea in pets. Some common causes of vomiting and diarrhea in pets are food allergies, stress, and your pet eating something it was not supposed to eat. That can mean it ate something off the ground, ate out of your trash, or got some table scraps that didn't agree with its stomach. Mild infections are another reason that can cause vomiting and diarrhea in pets.

Some causes of vomiting and diarrhea are more serious, though. Toxins, severe infections, and hormonal disorders can lead to vomiting and diarrhea. You should consult our vet in Santa Clara, CA, to see what is causing your pet to have vomiting and diarrhea.

How Do Vets Diagnose the Cause of Vomiting and Diarrhea in Pets?

Vets can figure out the cause of vomiting and diarrhea in several ways. First, a physical exam of your pet can reveal several facts about it, including if it has a fever, is dehydrated, or has a painful belly. The vet will also examine your pet for diseases that may cause vomiting and diarrhea.

Routine diagnostic tests for infectious diseases, X-rays, blood work, urine, and fecal analyses. These will give the veterinarians more information about your pet's condition. Often, these tests will reveal that the cause of the vomiting and diarrhea isn't serious. However, our vet will talk to you and determine the next step in the treatment plan.

What our patient say

  • "My dog Buster was in pain and wasn’t acting like himself. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Gill ASAP. He did a remarkable job during the initial exam to diagnose the problem and recommend additional treatments/services to relieve the pain Buster was in. After doing X-rays and blood work it was determined my little guy was suffering from intervertebral disc disease."
  • "This place was awesome. They took such good care of my giant Rottweiler during an emergency. They even called the next day to check up on her. The price was reasonable too. Went back again and the treatment was great yet again. Love that they stay open late and open everyday. So convenient. Thanks guys for treating my girl as is she was family!"
  • "I’m planning to travel with my baby cat. In order to do that she has to do a Rabies Neutralization Antibody Testing from certified lab. I was lucky to reach out Dr. Gill. He explained to me throughly and helped me to get it done. I would recommend Dr. Gill to everyone who needs professional and friendly help on their loved pets."
  • "I’m very happy with the service and prices of the Silicon Valley Pet Clinic. I have gotten quotes from other vets around and SVPC offers the best value! I took my dog in to get some growths removed and get this teeth cleaned."
  • "My 16 yr old cat Pete had some green discharge coming from his eye. I recently brought a feral kitten in to care for that my cousin found. I figured that Pete probably got scratched in the eye from the little guy."
  • "I was very nervous to have her spayed, especially after going through an episode of Giardia. She has been dealing with poop that is not consistent and we are doing some probiotic treatment."
