Is there a cure for tummy troubles?

Not all tummy troubles can be cured in the same way but there are some things you can do to help your furry friend.

- Solid food fast (for dogs older than 1 year): Allow their gastrointestinal tract to rest by withholding food and treats for 1 meal. Make sure to provide plenty of water during this time.

- Plenty of water: Water is very important when your pet is having digestive troubles as they can get easily dehydrated. Keep plenty of water available and offer ice cubes as treats. No-sodium bone broth added to their food or water can also entice them to drink more.

- Additional Fiber: Plain canned pumpkin (100% pumpkin, no added sugar, salt or spices) is an excellent form of fiber.

- Probiotics: Probiotics can be used during tummy troubles or long-term for better digestive health and immune support by boosting up the ‘friendly’ bacteria in your pet’s gut.

It’s okay to try to soothe your pup’s upset tummy at home if they are still interested in eating, drinking, and playing.

If your dog is not being themselves or their tummy troubles have been going on for a long period of time, it would be best to seek out your veterinarian for support.
