A diet change is a quick and easy way to help a dog with an upset stomach. Chicken and Rice Dog Food is one of the most widely recommended recipes for ill dogs. This recipe is made with three ingredients that are easy to digest and help to soothe an irritated digest tract.

You need to begin with small servings and gradually work your dog up to eating his regular meals again. It's best to start with 4-5 small portions of this food (or a similar recipe) for the first day. If your dog seems to keep the portions down, you can increase the serving size and feed 3-4 portions the second day. If all goes well, by the third day your dog should be ready to get back to his regular diet.

If at any time you notice that your dog's symptoms are getting worse, adjust the portions to a smaller amount and spread out the feeding times. Basically, a little bit of food will go a long way when your dog is suffering from an upset stomach.

Vomiting and diarrhea are the two most noticeable signs of upset stomach in dogs. If your dog continues to throw up or have diarrhea for more than 48 hours, you must seek veterinary care. Also, if your dog's symptoms seem to be getting progressively worse, you must seek veterinary treatment.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry white rice
  • 1 cup boneless, skinless chicken (cubed)
  • 1 tbsp. canned pumpkin
  • 1 3/4 cup water

Instructions

Boil the water. Cut the raw chicken into pieces that are appropriately sized for your dog. I have a Labrador, so the pieces seen in my recipe video and photos may be much too big for your small breed.

Add the chicken and rice to the boiling water. Simmer the ingredients until the chicken is fully cooked. This should take about 15 to 20 minutes.

Once the food has cooled, add the pumpkin and mix until it is thoroughly combined. You can feed it to your pup immediately.
