Many dogs eventually suffer from gastric ulcers or peptic ulcers in the course of their lives. Skin ulcers and corneal ulcers also afflict dogs.
In dogs, gastrointestinal ulcers are not often the result of bacterial infection (as would often be the case among people). Instead, sensitivity to NSAIDs or steroids, other health traumas, kidney issues, liver toxicity, and gastritis are the more likely causes of stomach or intestinal ulcers in dogs. The first symptoms of which are likely to be continued vomiting (perhaps including blood) and weight loss.
Natural Pet Cures: A stomach ulcer requires a doctor's evaluation and probably treatment, due to the risks of a perforated ulcer. However, DGL or”Deglycyrrhizinated” Licorice Root Extract may effectively soothe the stomach and reduce damage.
