The inflammatory cells can enter the intestinal wall in response to infection, injury, parasites, fungi or food intolerance. Though more common to German Shepherds, Yorkshire Terriers and Cocker Spaniels, it can still affect all breeds.


Symptoms of Lymphocytic Plasmacytic Enteritis

Symptoms of Lymphocytic Plasmacytic Enteritis can include weight loss, diarrhea, vomiting, swollen abdomen, ravenous appetite and lethargy.

Treatments for Lymphocytic Plasmacytic Enteritis

Treatment for Lymphocytic Plasmacytic Enteritis includes decreasing intestinal inflammation and stopping the diarrhea to increase weight gain. Tests should be done to determine the cause to see if the cause is dietary, parasitic or bacterial. With severe vomiting and diarrhea a fluid therapy will be needed to curb dehydration. In some cases antibiotic therapy will be necessary.
