Comparing Dry Dog Food For Sensitive Stomachs

My Boxer friend, Pickles had a rough time with dog food. Pickles needed a dog food for sensitive stomachs.

Luckily she found real relief when this simple remedy was (finally) discovered.

This boxer dines on dog food for sensitive stomachs.

Pickles no longer has sensitive
stomach issues.

In a nutshell, Pickles switched to Nutro Natural Choice for Sensitive Stomachs.

Nutro Natural is a dry dog food formulated for doggies with upset stomachs and digestive issues.

Now that Pickles is back playing at the dog park, we all notice how much better her coat looks, and she has much more energy too.

I've noticed some of my other dog pals seem to have upset stomachs now and then, too.

Maybe it's too many table scraps, or any number of foods that are not typically on our diets.

How Can Switching To A Sensitive Stomach Dog Food Make A Difference?

But we found that if by following Pickle's advice, if dog diarrhea is an issue, switching from ordinary dog food...

to one that is specially formulated as a sensitive stomach dog food...

(those science guys know what they're doing!)

... our in between meal snacks don't have quite the effect that they used to.

Does Your Dog Have Gas or Diarrhea?

If your dog has diarrhea or if your dog has gas (excessive gas) it could very well be an indication that they have a sensitive stomach, and changing out the food you feed them can bring great relief - for both you and your furry friend.

Some of the most popular selling brands of dry dog foods for sensitive stomachs are pure junk.

As the saying goes, "You are what you eat"...

With that in mind, take a look at the first 6 ingredients of this very popular top dog food brand:

Hills Science Diet Sensitive Stomach

  1. Brewers Rice
  2. Whole Grain Corn
  3. Corn Gluten Meal
  4. Chicken By-Product Meal
  5. Dried Egg Product
  6. Animal Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid)

Bottom line, you can discount any dry dog food that has piles of corn such as found in Hills Science Diet Sensitive Stomach dog food. Often, it's the corn in any dog food that causes many of the digestion problems us dogs suffer from.

And chicken by-product meal? Does anyone know what that is anyway? (Could it be ground up chicken feather and beaks?)

Pickles my Boxer buddy cured his  dog sensitive stomach.

So, now we are left with Iams, Eukanuba and Nutro Natural as our top picks as better dog food for sensitive stomachs.

I would choose either Iams for the fish protein or Nutro for it's wholesomeness. Either choice would be great.

Based on Pickle's success and the other pals from the park, I would recommend any dog make the switch to dog food formulated especially for sensitive stomachs.
