Does your dog ever get an upset stomach, diarrhea, or constipation?
If you’re nodding your head yes, you’re definitely not alone—these things affect most dogs at some point in their life and dogs with sensitive stomachs may have frequent symptoms.
To help your dog feel better, a natural digestive supplement (something you can keep in your pantry for “surprise” upset stomach incidents) might be just what they need!
How Can You Help a Dog with Digestive Distress
Digestive issues—such as nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation—are some of the most common conditions leading to veterinary visits.
There are many reasons why a dog might have an upset stomach, including:
- They ate something that didn’t agree with them (such as overindulging in people food, or eating something off the ground during a walk)
- A sensitive stomach, food allergy, or inflammatory bowel condition
- Other medical conditions
- Parasites or infections
- Taking antibiotics or other medications
Symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe in nature. Sometimes the symptoms pass quickly on their own, while other times your pup may feel down for a few days. When in doubt, it’s best to err on the side of caution and check with your veterinarian.
Determining the Cause of the Stomach Upset
If your pup suffers from digestive symptoms, it’s important to figure out if there’s an underlying cause that could be treated or managed—such as a food allergy or parasite infestation. Your veterinarian will let you know the most likely causes based on your pet’s history, symptoms, and physical exam, and then recommend any needed diagnostic tests.
Of course, if your pet is severely ill, treatments will be implemented at your visit—possibly including medications for upset stomach, and fluid and electrolyte support. If, however, your dog is otherwise healthy but has occasional bouts of stomach issues, your veterinarian may recommend some measures you can take at home to help them feel better, such as a bland diet. One possible home care solution for your pup could be nutritional supplementation with Fromm Family Remedies.
A Simple Solution to Digestive Imbalance
Remedies are pâté canned foods for dogs, which aid in digestive support.
Here are some benefits Remedies provide to your dog:
- Promotion of gut regularity
- Help getting back to normal during times of gastrointestinal distress
- Fiber and moisture to help with bowel movements
- Delicious flavors your dog will love, like chicken or whitefish
- Simple recipes with just a few easily digestible ingredients
Remedies for dogs include a unique fiber blend of miscanthus grass, pumpkin, and chicory root extract. All ingredients work in harmony to promote a healthy, natural solution to digestive distress.
When to Use Fromm Family Remedies
Think of it like a digestive “band-aid.” You don’t always know when you’ll need it, but you don’t want to be caught without it.
Times when Remedies will be most useful include…
- When your dog has symptoms of upset stomach, diarrhea, or constipation. Of course, if your dog is ill or their condition is getting worse, you’ll want to seek veterinary care. But if they’re otherwise acting normal and just having a bit of digestive trouble, Remedies can help
- While transitioning to a new food
- During times of stress, such as boarding or traveling
- If your dog is taking a medication that upsets their stomach, such as an antibiotic
- If needed, Remedies can be used as a supplement long-term (but see below for instructions)
How to Use Fromm Family Remedies
Just keep in mind that it’s not a complete and balanced diet on its own. It’s designed to be used as a supplement.
During times of digestive distress, you can replace up to 80% of your dog’s regular food with Remedies in the short-term. Gradually reduce this amount after 2-3 days.
If Fromm Family Remedies helps your dog and you’d like to use this digestive aid long-term, simply replace up to 20% of your dog’s daily food ration with one of the two Remedies recipes.
Note: If your dog has food allergies or is on a prescription diet, it’s best to check with your veterinarian prior to feeding anything new.
Other Ways to Support Digestive Health in Your Dog
As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Here are a few preventive measures you can take to help your dog’s gut stay healthy and balanced long-term…
- Feed your dog a complete and balanced diet
- Offer treats in moderation (less than 10% of your dog’s daily calorie intake)
- If treats include people food or table scraps, only use bland or veterinarian-approved options. Be sure everyone in the home knows this rule
- During walks outside, prevent your dog from eating things they shouldn’t including garbage, food spills, and rabbit droppings
- Plan ahead during times of stress or travel, and have Remedies or another digestive support aid on hand
- If your dog takes medications, give the pill with food (unless the instructions indicate otherwise)
Mild, transient digestive issues are usually nothing to worry about, but they’re no fun for your pet. Also, they’re no fun for you since you may worry about your dog or spend more time cleaning up messes than you’d like to.
In an otherwise healthy dog with mild symptoms, Fromm Family Remedies may be just the thing you need to give your dog some much-needed relief in a pinch.
Your dog will love the taste—and you’ll love seeing your pup feel better.
