The moros carrot soup is suitable as an ideal sparing food for your dog. In the first place, the meal helps with acute diarrhea. 

Home remedies for acute diarrhea

The main reason for Diarrhea in dog are bacteria or viruses. In some cases, parasites, e.g. giardia, can also be the cause of diarrhea. Of course, there are several other causes that can lead to this. 

The responsible pathogens usually reside in the stomach or intestines. 

Chemical medications are often used to treat diarrhea. Unfortunately, these drugs also attack the healthy intestinal flora and Gastric mucosa and weaken the immune system.

That is why in most cases it is good to resort to natural remedies, as long as the diarrhea is not a concomitant of a serious disease or infection.

Moro carrot soup facts


Moro's carrot soup was developed in 1908. The inventor of this soup was professor Ernst Moro. The soup was intended for young children who suffered from stomach and intestinal problems.


The most important thing in moros carrot soup is the cooking time. The long cooking time develops oligosaccharides (special sugar molecules). These molecules have a positive effect on the intestinal flora by coating the walls of the small intestine. Most Parasites and germs can then no longer attach to the intestinal wall and thus cause the diarrhea.
