Canine digestion

Canine Digestive System

Your dog’s digestive system is a complex arrangement. It takes in the food he eats, grinds it up into small pieces, and turns it into nutrients (carbohydrates into simple sugars, fats into fatty acids, and proteins into amino acids) that are absorbed by your dog’s body and used to keep him healthy and strong. This entire process takes between 7 and 10 hours to complete in a healthy dog.

Sometimes though, things don’t run along quite as they should and his digestive system goes awry. Perhaps your dog is bloated, constipated, or throwing up. If your pet experiences any digestive disorders, it is important to call your veterinarian and discuss the situation. Depending on the seriousness of the problem and the demeanor of your pet, a trip to you pets doctor and an examination may be recommended.
