Tips for Feeding a Dog with Stomach Issues

A sensitive stomach in dogs refers to a condition in which a dog has difficulty digesting and tolerating certain types of food. Dogs with sensitive stomachs may experience a variety of gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, flatulence, bloating and abdominal discomfort. If your dog has a stomach issues, here are a few tips to consider when selecting the right food for them.

1. Look for a limited ingredient diet: Some dogs with sensitive stomachs may benefit from a limited ingredient diet, which contains fewer ingredients and is less likely to trigger digestive issues. These diets typically feature a single protein source.

2. Consider a novel protein: If your dog has had digestive issues with common protein sources like chicken or beef, you may want to consider a novel protein such as venison, duck, or kangaroo, which are less likely to trigger allergies or sensitivities.

3. Choose a high-quality food: Look for dog food that is made with high-quality ingredients and does not contain fillers or artificial preservatives. Avoid foods with excessive amounts of grains, as these can be difficult for dogs to digest.

4. Try a prescription diet: If your dog has severe digestive issues, your veterinarian may recommend a prescription diet. These diets are formulated to meet specific nutritional needs and may be easier for your dog to digest.

5. Feed smaller, more frequent meals: Feeding your dog smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day can help reduce the likelihood of digestive upset. This is especially important for dogs with sensitive stomachs.
