Sick Pup Foods That Can Help

Sick Pup? Foods That Can Help

Dogs may experience symptoms such as upset stomachs, gas, nausea, constipation, and diarrhea.  It is important to note that these symptoms are occasionally signs of a more serious problem.  Always speak with your veterinarian before taking treatment into your own hands.  The following foods are intended for dogs who are experiencing these symptoms.

Chicken and Rice – Chicken and rice are prime ingredients in many dog foods, and these mild foods sit well on upset canine stomachs. All you need are boneless, skinless chicken breasts and rice.

Shredded Chicken – Plain, unseasoned, boiled, shredded chicken is easy to digest and is packed with essential vitamins, minerals, fats, and amino acids, making it a great snack for dogs feeling under the weather.

Bone Brother – Bone broth is a very mild, liquid meal that sits easily in upset canine stomachs. It is also a nutritious and delicious way to add moisture and flavor to dry food and encourage dogs with reduced appetites to eat.

Baby Food – Baby food is very easy to swallow and digest and is a great way to give oral medications. Veterinarians recommend feeding Stage II meat-based baby foods like chicken, lamb, and turkey, if the baby food does not contain any garlic or onion powder.

Dogs with existing health conditions like diabetes, cancer, allergies, and senior dogs might need additional nutrition to stay healthy.
