How to Cure an Upset Stomach

dogs and bonesIf your dog has the symptoms of an upset stomach such as:  diarrhea, vomiting, no appetite, mouth odor, burps or excessive thirst, you should not give them food for the next 12 to 24 hours. Puppies should only fast 12 hours maximum. Just like humans water may aggravate an upset stomach so just give your dog ice chips.

After the fast you may give your dog small meals of either cooked ground meat and rice or cooked chicken (skin removed) and rice. One article I read, the vet recommended chicken because it is more easily digested. Holistic vets recommend you add a tablespoon of plain yogurt.  The probiotics contained in yogurt help introduce good bacteria into your dogs digestive system.

Other recommendations for natural cures on how to cure upset stomach are mint tea (small dogs one mug/day large dogs/3 mugs per day) or Ginger Root. You can get it in capsule form at the health food store or you could also make the tea. If your dog eats grass he/she may be curing themselves because grass will help reduce nausea as well as soothe the stomach.

When your dog is able to drink water again, consider adding some Gatorade to their water to restore their electrolyte balance. Being  ill causes dogs electrolytes to get out of balance (same goes for humans).

If after a day or so your dog seems better, gradually phase them back into their regular diet. If your dog still does not seem right, take him/her to the vet. The symptoms could indicate a more serious problem than just an upset stomach.

To prevent further episodes of upset stomach you might want to consider a digestive supplement for your pet. Native Remedies offers PetAlive Digestive Support to maintain a healthy digestive system. The capsule can be opened and mixed in with your pet’s food. PetAlive Digestive Support in addition to helping your pet’s digestive system function better will soothe gastric mucus membranes,maintains health energy levels and general well-being and supports routine absorption of nutrition.
