dog-diarrhea-treatmentLike humans, dogs have to deal with not so pleasant stomach issues and bouts of diarrhea. If your dog is experiencing extreme and continuous diarrhea, dehydration, or other signs of sickness, seek advice from your veterinarian immediately. But often times a simple home remedy  of white rice and boiled chicken will suffice. Adjust recipe according to your dogs weight.

Chicken & Rice Dog Recipe

Ingredients:

Frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
½ cup white rice
2 cup of water

Instructions:

1) Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a pot.
2) Boil 1 breast of chicken for 15-20 minutes in the water until juicy and tender.
3) Bring the other cup of water to a boil in a separate pot.
4) Pre-rinse the white rice in a strainer and then cook in the second pot according to the instructions on the package.
5) Drain the chicken out of the water when it is cooked. Shred the chicken in small bit sizes.
6) Mix the shredded chicken and rice in a bowl. Allow it to cool a bit as to not burn your dog’s mouth.

Even the most sick pup loves a good meal of rice and chicken, which is often all a pup can stomach when diarrhea sets in. Slowly increase the amount of food given to your dog over the course of a day or two. Within a few hours or days, the diarrhea should stop completely and your dog can be weaned back on his regular diet if the diarrhea subsides.  Although it can be tempting to spoil a sick dog back to health it is important to avoid dog treats, chews and oily food until the diarrhea is gone.

**IMPORTANT** Make sure to keep your dog hydrated throughout the entire process. Keep his water bowl full and, if he isn’t consuming any liquids, contact a vet.
