Sensitive Stomach Dog Food

If your dog has a digestive system that gets easily irritated or upset, then consult your vet to determine if you should switch your pet to sensitive dog food. Sensitive stomach dog food typically contains fewer ingredients than other types of dog foods and stays away from ingredients that are known to irritate sensitive digestive tracts.

FAQs About Sensitive Dog Food

Like humans, some dogs simply have a digestive system that gets easily irritated. Many different food ingredients can cause irritation. While your dog might not be able to tell you if they are having stomach pains, there are several ways for you to notice signs.

The most common symptoms of a sensitive stomach are:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Loose stools
  • Flatulence
  • Before switching your dog to a digestive health dog food, schedule an appointment with your vet. These symptoms can be related to a range of health concerns, and you don’t want to miss another potentially serious health issue.

    You’ll also want to make sure your dog’s symptoms aren’t caused by them eating things they shouldn’t. Keep an eye on your dog to ensure they aren’t getting into the trash, nibbling on things out in the yard or digging into the cat’s litter box. Human table scraps can also give a dog an upset stomach and may cause your pet to gain extra weight. If your pet needs help slimming down, take a look at Petco’s weight management dog food.

    Your dog’s sensitive stomach can be caused by a number of different ingredients. Every dog is different. For example, some dogs are sensitive to certain proteins while others may need more fiber in their diet. Certain dogs may be sensitive to grains and would do better on a grain-free diet. The best way to find out which type of sensitive digestion dog food is best for your pet is to work with your vet and test different options.

    If you notice that your dog is experiencing symptoms of a sensitive stomach, schedule an appointment with your vet to make sure the symptoms aren’t due to a larger health issue. If it turns out that your dog simply has an easily irritated tummy, then dog food specially formulated for sensitive digestion is a good option.

    Different dogs react to different ingredients. That means you’ll likely need to experiment until you find the right sensitive stomach dog food or sensitive stomach puppy food for your canine.

    If one food isn’t working, try a food that uses different main ingredients. For example, if your dog gets an upset stomach with chicken-based foods, try lamb-based or duck-based foods.
