Feeding less relieves the strain on your dog’s digestive system. Feel your dog’s body, running your hands along his sides from shoulders to hips. If he feels overweight then cut back on his food. Ask the vet next time if your pooch is carrying a few too many pounds.
Change your dog food
Obvious I know, but often owners think it’s just part of owning a dog that they will have sensitive stomachs, but experiment with food to get the best quality for your dogs health, one that agrees with their bowel movements.
Most dry commercial pet foods are at least 50% grain because the carbohydrates are needed to hold the food together. A dog does not need, and certainly cannot properly digest the amount of unnatural carbohydrates found in such feed. This goes a long way to explaining why dogs on a commercial diet have much bigger stools than those fed on a raw diet. It’s the first thing people notice when they move to raw; smaller, less smelly stools due to the high digestibility of the natural food. It can take 18 hours for a dog fed on a kibble-based diet to digest this food, whereas on a natural raw food diet which means the food is digested in around 6 hours.
