Wellness canned food not agreeable… anyone else have a B w/a sensitive stomach?

  • I read the ingredients on the Wellness canned wet food and they sounded very simple. I thought this would be a good mix-in with Bella's dry food, but her sensitive stomach didn't agree with me (and I only used 1/3 of a can)!:( As of yet there is only one wet food that agrees with her and it is NOT one I really want to give her all the time (it's one of the "lesser" brands). Oh how I wish I had a dog with an "Iron Stomach." Does anyone else out there have a B with a super sensitive tummy???

  • Since you don't use much as a mixer…. I would go with what already works.

  • I went through months of trial and error with Ziggy's diet. He does have a sensitive digestive system and, though he will eat ANYthing, he is susceptible to diarrhea at the drop of a hat. We finally figured out that he does great on Steve's Raw Food.

    Awesome news. My dogs are on the raw diet as well, not Steve's though, I am making all of it, with some additions. They are thriving. I hope Ziggy will stay well on it.

  • I mix in Steve's raw, Primal Raw http://www.primalpetfoods.com/ ,and 2 tsp Canned pumpkin. I also give 1 cap of probiotics (Ark Naturals Gentle Digest) and 1/4 tsp 2x daily Solid Gold Seameal.

  • You may want to see if a product like Prozyme or Fresh Digest which has enzymes to help with digestion helps with Bella's stomach issues.

    Or you might want to try some probiotics..my vet recommended non dairy ones. I got a pack of 30 packets with powder you just sprinkle on top of their food, from the vet, I believe it is "the Hills" brand..

  • we are still fighting diarehhea too. YUCKKKKKKK! i use 1 tsp pumpkin a day. and i have one on anxiety meds. he HATES his crate. but it really seems to be helping. the other one is PETRIFIED of noises: guns from hunters in the VERY distance, fireworks, etc. He did not even want to walk tonite(july 2). he gets pumpkin with a does of imodium. but the powder might help? where do you get it?

  • You can get Fresh Digest at Petco. Prozyme you can order from Drs Foster and Smith online. Both are probiotics. The size sold at Petco is about 100 servings.
