Supplements for Your Dog's Upset Tummy
Nimble's probiotic powder and yogurt. She gets a little yogurt treat now and then...
Your dogs' digestive system is home to friendly bacteria called
probiotics. These are live cultures... friendly organisms that
enhance you furry pal's digestion... one of many benefits! These
guys kill off unhealthy pathogens (invaders) and improve digestion
for overall good dog health.
Has your dog been on antibiotics lately? How about other drugs? We
hope not. If so, these microscopic workers were wiped out and need
to be replenished.
A reputable probiotic is a great dog nutrition supplement. Also, It should be included in your dog upset stomach home remedies kit. I

just to make sure. She doesn't even know it's in there (I think).

- Types. They
come in liquid, powder and capsule. I've read pros and cons of
each. If your dog has an upset stomach, you need to use the one
that's easiest to work with if your doggie isn't eating her vittles.
Nimble and I use the powder, we'll refer to it in our directions...
- Storage. The powder we have (powder is easiest to use) lasts 1 year in the
'frig, 2 years in the freezer. I put a weeks supply in a little
bottle and feed from this. The big container should remain sealed
as much as possible.

Follow the directions on the container. Actually, for periodic
daily maintenance, I cut Nimble's amount in half.

been on antibiotics? Are you using using it for one of your dog upset stomach home remedies? If so, I'd follow the directions

the right stuff. Just
like anything else, not all probiotics are created equal. I
actually talked with the owner of the product we use. Make sure it
includes prebiotics... these are food for the probiotics.
I'd suggest looking online or perhaps your health food store. It's
not too expensive... a little goes a long way.
mix the powder with Nimble's dog food. If your dog doesn't eat all
her chow, no biggie. Eventually, friendly bacteria will flourish in
your pal's digestive system.
What if your pooch has an upset tummy and mixing with healthy dog
food isn't an option? Perhaps place the powder on her tongue. Or, the liquid form can be dripped on her tongue with
a dropper. A small capsule can be placed on the tongue towards the
back your doggy's throat.
Include Yogurt in Your Dog Upset Stomach Home Remedies
dogs yogurt is another source of probiotics. Only use organic, plain
and unsweetened yogurt. Nimble

I'm feeding Nimble a little bit of organic, plain yogurt without xylitol!
It's ok to mix yogurt with apples...those seeds won't harm your dog. To make sure... you might try reading this page about dogs eating apples.
non-organic brands contain xylitol, a sweetener which can be deadly!
This sweetener is found in
other dog foods as well. Do dogs like the taste of yogurt? Nimble

much and how often?
Nimble is 11 lbs. If I was using this as a dog indigestion remedy,
I'd give her about 1 tablespoon, twice a day. Otherwise, a
tablespoon here and there should do it for maintenance. Moderation
is the key... as with other “human” vittles... even some good
healthy dog food.
Healthy yogurt is found in most grocery stores. The cost is
Serve it up! Just put a little on a dish and watch your dog
lap it up! If she's a little hesitant, add a bit of organic raw
honey (add it to other dog upset stomach home remedies as well)...
Then, a pat on the back followed by “eat your yogurt goood
dawg!” should do the trick. If Nimble had an upset tummy and
wasn't eating, I wouldn't force it.
Is your dog throwing up undigested food or water? Before you load her up into the car and head to the vet... there's some very important things you should know. These following pages will help you...
of Probiotics for Your Dog's Upset Stomach
Let your dog do her wild dog thing. Dig dirt. Eat deer, rabbit or
other poop (not other unhealthy doggie poop). In fact, encourage it! Let dogs be dogs. Tons of healthy organisms are acquired
Nimble doesn't eat coyote poop... she loves the deer stuff instead!
We'll list some other sources of probiotics. Although we won't go
into detail (something about not letting this page get too long...
Nimble's reminding me again!)... they do work!
Fermented Beverages and vegetables for dogs. You can easily

Raw goat milk. It's loaded with probiotics and is easier on
digestion than cow's milk. Organic is best.
Keep in mind... we're the only species on this planet who drink milk
(eat milk products) throughout life. We should be weaned off while
we're toddlers (and our dogs). The moral of my story? Use milk and
milk products in moderation (sparingly) with you and your pooch...
Many don't agree with us. That's ok... we're used to it. Zzzzzz...

- Kefir. Packed with probiotics, kefir is a fermented food
that most dogs like. Shoot for plain organic.

Rice... Yummiest of Dog Upset Stomach Home Remedies?
I'd rate it right up there with yogurt...
Once your dog's appetite returns, you can slowly introduce bland
chicken and rice. If blended fruit and vegetables (or juices) isn't

- Brown or white rice.

bulk. You can also find it online or maybe your grocer carries it.
doggy parents use white rice. This is because the high fiber in brown
rice helps push that food right on out. This is what you're trying to
slow down (only when your pooch has diarrhea)... you want to bind your
dog's food. However, I cook my brown rice until it is really mushy.
Pure is best. Watch out for those bottles with pretty labels...
the stuff inside isn't! Health food stores might carry the good
stuff. Dog upset stomach home remedies aren't as effective with impure water.
We purify our own with a little 1 gallon distiller. Nimble and I
don't drink much. We get tons of H20 from our raw food... and it's
already distilled! Here's a picture of Nimble with our home
Add about 4 parts water to one part rice. Boil until all the water
is gone and the rice is mushy.
Simmer the chicken in a pan with a little water on a low heat until
Mix the rice with the chicken (we don't consider this proper food
combining... we'll make an exception).
I slowly introduce food to Nimble (and myself) a little at a time.
As time goes on, the frequency of feeding and the amount of food is
increased. After a couple days, your dog should be fine on her
normal dog feeding schedule (only healthy dog vittles, ok?).
Try straining some of the water off the cooked rice. Mix with the
chicken water. Presto... a broth for your doggie!
Also, I've read about boiling the bones, then adding the "juice" to the broth. I've never tried this in our dog upset stomach home remedies.
We use brown rice... it's so much better for your pooch. You'll need to cook it longer than the white, processed rice which most prefer...
We buy organic, brown rice in bulk. Actually, this is the only cooked food Nimble's dad eats!

Tea for Soothing Your Dog's Upset Stomach
You can use the tincture form...
One teaspoon (½ tsp for Nimble) for a 30 pound dog fed 2-3 times per
day should work. Use a feeding syringe and squirt it into your dog's
mouth. Use a dropper for smaller amounts and smaller doggies like

about a tablespoon of tea every 2 hours to large dogs. If you don't
see results after two or three servings, try feeding your dog every
hour... chamomile is a safe remedy. Use a feeding syringe or
dropper and feed like a tincture.
You can store it for several days in the refrigerator. However, I
would make a new batch every day... it's cheap and simple to make!
