Intestinal parasites are a common cause of vomiting and diarrhea in dogs; however, other medical problems can lead to similar symptoms.

  • One must exclude disorders such as viral infection, ingestion of spoiled or toxic food, ingestion of irritating or toxic substances, or bacterial infections, before establishing a definite diagnosis of disease from parasite infection.

  • Remember too that many pets have more than one problem. For example, in a young dog, a viral infection of the intestine (such as parvovirus or coronavirus infections) is very likely to be complicated by a pre-existing intestinal parasite problem.
