Which is the best food for dogs with upset stomachs?
Upset stomachs can be caused by a range of factors. Some puppies with sensitive stomachs are just unlucky and are born with them. Therefore, they need dog food for their sensitive tummy. However, this condition can also pop up unexpectedly at any age.
Beyond this, changing your dog’s diet can set off tummy trouble, as can giving them high volumes of dog treats or foods, they should not be eating. Worms, a bacterial infection, and motion sickness during travel can all result in symptoms of stomach upset.
When it comes to feeding your dog following an upset stomach, a bland diet is often recommended. It’s always best to speak to your vet for information on the best foods to give your dog, especially if it has allergies or food intolerances.
Your vet may recommend that following a bland diet, your dog should transition to a sensitive food such as Burgess Sensitive. Gradually introduce the new food by mixing it in with the old over a period of 7-10 days until the new food completely replaces the old diet.
