Supplements for IBS in Dogs


Our canine companions often hide their pain, so it can be hard to determine what they are experiencing. If you notice that your dog whines, yelps or pulls away when you touch their abdomen, they could be experiencing IBS or Irritable Bowl Syndrome.

Symptoms of IBS vary, and may include diarrhea, bloating, constipation, frequent bowel movements, a lower energy level and fever. A thorough examination by your veterinarian will help identify the cause of your dog’s bowel discomfort.

IBS Supplement for Dogs


The term IBS encompasses a group of symptoms which are all characterized by chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. There is no clear cause; but could be due to genetic predisposition, dietary allergies, stress, infection in the area or pharmaceutical side effects.



Collaborating with Texas A&M University researchers, Vital Pet Sciences created PCQ Pet, a next-generation anti-inflammatory supplement  featuring palmitoylethanolamide, or PEA. PEA is the “body’s own anti- inflammatory”, a fatty acid made in every cell of every mammal.  

The researchers found that when PEA was combined with a certain ratio of turmeric extract and quercetin, the effect was much greater than any one ingredient alone. These ingredients together led to an exponential increase in cellular anti-inflammatory activity. It was a finding so groundbreaking, the university filed for patents on the formula now known as PCQ Pet

Studies on both animals and humans suggest that PEA can assist in restoring the normal function of an inflamed digestive tract and reduce abdominal pain in those suffering from IBS.

PCQ Pet is different than other supplements for dogs, because it contains the body’s own anti-inflammatory, palmitoylethanolamide or PEA, along with other anti-inflammatory ingredients, like curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

PCQ Pet contains a specific, patent-pending ratio of PEA, turmeric and quercetin, a plant flavonoid that was found to have synergistic activity on inflammation in university research. PCQ Pet was found by veterinarians to be an effective supplement for large and small dogs who suffer from allergies and its related symptoms 

IBS Supplement for Dogs

If your dog’s IBS symptoms are due to food allergies, PEA would be an ideal addition to any dietary changes; as numerous studies support its action as a histamine inhibitor. If stress seems to increase symptoms, PEA has the additional benefit of helping pets feel more relaxed and at ease. This is due to enhanced activity of anandamide in the body, otherwise known as “the bliss molecule”.

If your veterinarian has identified IBS as the cause of your dog’s digestive discomfort, it is important to follow their recommendations. However, PEA can be taken along with prescriptions. Because all animals make their own PEA, there are no known side effects or complications. When given as a supplement, clinical trials have shown that PEA decreases the severity of abdominal pain.

Seeing an increase in appetite, normalizing of bowel movements, and reduced sensitivity to touch in are of the abdomen will let you know PCQ Pet is working for your pup. Return your pet’s love in the best way possible, with PCQ Pet; a happy stomach and a better quality of life!
