Why Does My Donkey Have Diarrhea?

Donkeys evolved from the desert. Let’s think about what food sources are in the desert.  When we feed a donkey like a cow or a goat eating brush the donkey gets too much sugar and or protein. The donkey poop should be hard. Diarrhea is a sign of the diet being too rich.  Stress is another sign of diarrhea. Please be sure and learn how to stop diarrhea. Make sure your donkey’s poop goes back to normal quickly and if not call the vet.

The brush can cause diarrhea and tree leaves. The diet must be strict and the donkey needs to live on a dry track or paddock the majority of his/her day. Kinda like a camel has a unique diet and climate, so does the desert equine the donkey.
