Every dog will suffer with an upset stomach from time to time. One of the quickest and easiest ways to help a dog in this situation is by changing his diet. A chicken and rice recipe for dogs is one of the most commonly recommended remedy for dogs with an upset stomach.

You need to begin with small servings and gradually work your pet 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 on 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 Fido'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 pet 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 need to contact your vet immediately.
