    Default Upset Tummy

    I've seen here that you can feed boiled chicken and rice if your dog has an upset stomach. Just wondering what you can feed if you don't have any chicken...?

    Last time Tay had an upset tummy I just gave her kibble, thinking this would be better than adding other stuff to it as I normally do. Is this true or am I on the wrong track lol.

    Hi Loren

    First thing you do is a bit of a fast, depending how old the dog is. For over 6 months old, overnight/12 hours up to 24 hours for an adult dog - no food.

    Kibble has a fair bit of fat and other stuff that may continue to irritate an upset tummy without any of the doggy equivalent to Immodium.

    Hence the boiled chicken and rice option. Plain rice would be ok too. Well better for tummy than kibble.

    I found that when I changed the type of kibble I was feeding, the tummy upsets went away so - feeding more kibble not the best idea for my puppy dog.

    Does Taya eat grass? That's what dogs usually do when they have an upset tummy..eat it then bring it back up.

    Hope she's feels better soon.

    You could try just plain rice, bit boring i know. Or my vet told me I could put some cottage cheese in with the rice to add a bit of flavour. Hope Taya is ok this morning

    We suggest boiled chicken and rice when the dog can't keep its food down. Its also good for dogs with diarrhea, but its more the rice you want them too eat, the chicken just gives it the flavouring.

    Aww thanks guys.

    She threw up a huge lot of grass yesterday arvo, and I thought that might be the end of it but she threw up again after that. Last night I blocked off the carpeted areas in the house and put her bed outside my door. I left the door open but blocked the entrance - no spewy carpet for me thanks

    Luckily I heard her get up at 11.30 so I let her out - she spewed again.
    So far this morning she hasn't thrown up, still a little under the weather though. I'll keep a close eye on her

    If she spews longer than over the course of 24 hours, I'd take her to the vet, I know it seems a bit over the top, but it could be a parasite or infection.

    It could also be something stuck in the gut. I have these kinds of problems also when Frosty swallows big chunks of marrow bone. Sometimes she chucks it up and sometimes she gets the runs...

    Hopefully just a tummy bug... how is she this arvo/this evening?

    Just what we have experienced with Leo, he's is only 18 months old but has had a few off days and will generally fast himself if he is feeling 'off' and comes back onto his food within 24-28hrs... Even if i try chicken and rice in the first 24hrs he wont take it.... but give it to him the next day (He always looks brighter the next day) and he will eat, usually a few mouthfulls and sits on it for a while then suddenly starts to feel a whole lot better & eats the rest. oh, and no to mention the sooky nature when he is unwell. Hoping Tay feels better xx
