Caring for a dog with a sensitive stomach can be a challenge, especially since most commercial dog foods are likely to trigger health problems in these dogs and usually upset their stomachs. As an alternative to store-bought sensitive stomach dog foods, you can prepare your own homemade meals, either daily or once a week (and freeze or refrigerate them).
We’ve published many dog food recipes here on Top Dog Tips before, and while some of them may be a good option for your problematic pup, many won’t. I’ve gone through a list and found five best homemade dog food for sensitive stomach recipes that are likely to work for most canines. Some meals should be served in multiple, smaller portions or they can upset your dog’s stomach. The daily serving size for dogs with sensitive stomachs should be 1 cup for every 25 pounds of weight per day, spread across multiple meals.
If none of these meet your pet’s needs, I recommend you also check out Samantha’s home made dog food recipes for sensitive stomach, digestive disorders and stomach upset. She’s published a few of those, but these five are my favorite:
