I’m really struggling with the sensitive digestive tract of our wonderful greyhound. He is currently on Purina EN from the vet, and for awhile, that did the trick, but he’s had a bout of the gurgling stomach and loose stools. As he doesn’t really like the food, he’s picky about it, but does eventually eat it. I have been wetting it (bad teeth) but maybe I shouldn’t be doing that either. Anyway, I find the whole dog food issue very complicated (not to mention really expensive) and of course switching dog food has to be done very carefully with this one, or we’re back to square 1. I have talked to the vet; most people just say this is a chronic problem for some greyhounds, but I’d like to help him feel better.
Anybody know a food very tolerated by greyhounds with finicky tummies?
Thanks in advance if you can offer advice!theBCnutMember
Any dog with a sensitive tummy needs to be placed on a digestive supplement with pre/probiotics and digestive enzymes. Sometime with the simple addition of a digestive supplement you can cure a sensitive tummy completely. Swansons has some nice digestive supplements at a great price. NutriSource has a chicken and rice food that is usually easy to transition to, so it should be good for a sensitive tummy. Their other flavors are also usually easy to transition to. Try adding a tablespoon of pure canned pumpkin to every meal until he is completely transitioned too.
