There are many foods that can help to cure your dog’s upset stomach. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to give them something that will make their tummy feel better, then these 6 foods may be just what you need! Some of the most common reasons why dogs get stomach aches are because of changes in diet or because they eat too fast. This article will break down each food and explain how it can benefit your dog if they have diarrhea or an upset stomach.

1) Apples:

The high fibre content in apples helps reduce constipation which is often the cause of an upset stomach. Apples also contain pectin which is helpful for reducing diarrhea caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Apples are high in vitamin A and C which help boost the immune system.

– Apples can also be given to your dog even if they do not have an upset stomach, just as a treat once or twice a week! Avoid giving them apple seeds because these may cause intestinal obstruction – feed with skin on.

– If you don’t want to give them whole apples, try grating some into their food instead of feeding it raw. Make sure there is no added sugar or preservatives before serving. You can freeze leftovers for up to one month or refrigerate for three days at most.

2) Bananas:

Bananas contain pectin which is also helpful for reducing diarrhea.

– You can try to freeze peeled bananas and give them as a frozen treat if your dog likes the cold! This will help soothe their upset tummy while providing some much-needed nutrients at the same time.

– Make sure there are no added sugar or preservatives before serving. Avoid giving dogs green bananas because these may cause intestinal obstruction – feed with skin on.

– Try grating unpeeled bananas into food instead of feeding it raw, just like apples (see above). Freeze leftovers in an airtight container or bag for up to one month or refrigerate for three days max before tossing out any remaining fruit that hasn’t been eaten.

– Bananas are also great for dogs with pancreatitis. They help to reduce the fat content in their diet and can be given as a substitute for high-fat treats or snacks.

3) Rice:

Rice is great for dogs suffering from diarrhea because it’s a bland food which means that there will be less irritation to their stomach lining.

– Cooked white rice, brown rice or wild rice can all help your dog feel better when they have an upset tummy!

– Make sure you don’t give them any type of flavoured or seasoned rice and avoid adding anything else like meat, vegetables etc.. Keep the serving size small (around three tablespoons) since too much fibre in their diet may cause more intestinal discomfort.

– If your dog likes eating dry kibble, try mixing some cooked plain white rice into their regular meal once every few days rather than giving it as a stand-alone treat – this way you know they’re getting the nutrients they need while still keeping their regular diet intact.

– Freezing leftovers is not recommended because this can cause the rice to ferment and increase the risk of your dog developing yeast infections in their mouth or stomach which may make them even more uncomfortable.

– If you don’t want to cook, there are now some brands of packaged plain white rice for dogs available at most pet stores! Be sure to read the label before feeding so as not to give anything with added preservatives that might harm your dog’s digestive system further.

Benefits: – Helps reduce constipation – Contains pectin which also helps reduces diarrhea caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – High fibre content help reduce diarrhea – Contains vitamin A and C which boost the immune system – Can be given as a treat once or twice a week even if the dog does not have an upset stomach – Good for dogs with diarrhea caused by IBS – Great substitute for high-fat treats/snacks when your dog has pancreatitis.

– Helps reduce irritation in the tummy due to constipation, diarrhea etc…

– Bland food soothes upset stomach (less irritating) while providing nutrients at the same time.

– Cooked rice is versatile; can mix into a regular meal (dry kibble), used as a stand-alone snack or added to any other type of food that requires cooking. If you add it directly without preparation, feed only small servings since too much fibre

4) Boiled egg whites:

Boiled eggs are great for dogs who have an upset stomach because they provide a lot of protein and fat which is perfect to help soothe the belly.

– Eggs don’t need any preparation – you can give your dog raw or boiled egg whites, just be sure that there’s no added salt in it!

– Feeding too many whole eggs may cause pancreatitis if the dog has been diagnosed with this condition already. Use only as needed without feeding every day since this food contains high amounts of cholesterol which will make them feel even worse over time…too much protein isn’t good either (see below).

– If you want to feed more than one egg at a time, try scrambling two hardboiled eggs instead and mixing in a little bit of plain yogurt for added nutrients and protein.

– If your dog has an egg allergy, you’ll want to avoid this recipe since eggs are the main ingredient! Try substituting boiled sweet potatoes or butternut squash instead which also provide much-needed vitamins A & C in addition to carbohydrates (starch) that help absorb excess water in their stomach which will also help reduce diarrhea.

– Hard-boiled eggs can be given as a dog treat once every few days if your dog has been diagnosed with pancreatitis but continue to monitor their weight and appetite carefully since too much protein (and fat) can cause rapid weight gain, fatigue or nausea especially if they are not being exercised properly.

– You can also try feeding a little bit of canned plain pumpkin (NOT the pie filling type) which is low in fibre

5) Oatmeal:

– Oatmeal is high in soluble fibre which helps to absorb excess water and can aid with diarrhea or constipation.

– Soluble fibre is water-soluble; it can swell up in the intestines and help to create bulk which will push out waste

– This type of fibre also helps with weight control because once it moves into the large intestine, some of its calories are absorbed by bacteria – this means that they don’t get completely digested and you’ll end up passing them through your dog’s system (this is why oatmeal may actually make their stools a little bit softer).

– Oats contain high amounts of vitamin B so adding just one teaspoon per day to your dog’s regular meal will give him or her an energy boost! Make sure not to add too much since too much fat from oats might cause diarrhea. Some dogs have digesting grains like wheat, oats, barley and rye better than others.

– Oatmeal can also be used as a dog treat on its own or mixed in with other ingredients to make a dog treat recipe.

– Oatmeal can be prepared in several different ways: boiled, baked or microwaved but NEVER use instant oats because they contain additives that are not safe for dogs.

– You can mix oatmeal with your dog’s regular meal (dry kibble, wet dog food) or give it as a separate snack

– If your dog’s diarrhea is really bad, stick to giving them plain boiled oats without any added salt, sugar or milk.

– If your dog’s diarrhea is manageable and you want to give them a little bit more flavour, try adding some plain yogurt and a little bit of honey

– Oatmeal is not only great for treating diarrhea in dogs but it can also help with constipation.

– You can soak one cup of oats in three cups of water and give it to your dog once every day for two weeks.

– Make sure to mix it well with their regular meal and give your dog plenty of water since oatmeal will make them feel bloated if they don’t drink enough.

– If your dog has a wheat allergy, you should avoid oatmeal since it is made from similar grains.

– Oats are also high in calories so don’t give your dog too much or they will gain weight quickly and feel sluggish.

6) Pumpkin (canned or pureed)

– Pumpkin is not only a great source of fibre but also vitamin A and C which help boost your dog’s immune system.

– It also contains potassium which helps reduce blood pressure and the risk of kidney disease

– Pumpkin is also a great source of iron, manganese, thiamine and magnesium.

– If your dog has an upset stomach from vomiting or diarrhea, give them canned pumpkin (NOT pie filling) to help keep their digestive system moving without irritating it further. You can mix this with regular food like kibble but make sure not to use too much since it’s very high in calories if you do! One spoonful per day should be plenty for most dogs especially when they have gastrointestinal issues.

– Make sure to avoid feeding your dog any type of pumpkin seeds because these contain phytic acid which can actually absorption of important minerals in the digestive system and lead to nutrient deficiencies (especially in puppies).

– Canned pumpkin is a great source of fibre that helps absorb excess water and can help alleviate diarrhea

– Make sure to avoid pumpkin pie filling since it contains a lot of sugar which is not good for your dog
