What to Feed a Dog with Diarrhea or Stomach Upset
If your dog has diarrhea, please call your vet and report it before giving any type of at home remedy or over the counter medication to your dog. Diarrhea can be a common occurrence in dogs and often caused by something they’ve eaten. However, diarrhea can also be a symptom of another illness and should be treated accordingly. Once you notify your vet and have your dog examined, your vet may send you home until test results are in and he can prescribe a medication. In the mean time, ask your vet if it’s OK to feed your dog a bland diet to help settle the stomach. Some vets recommend feeding cooked white rice or boiled chicken or boiled hamburger meat. This can help settle the stomach and return the dog’s stool to normal. If your dog is still sick after eating this diet, notify your Brandon, FL vet. Click here.
