Make sure your dog is hydrated

Making sure your dog has enough water is essential to not only their gut health, but their overall health. Make sure their water bowl is full and available in easy to find places. You can also add bone broth to their dog food to increase hydration levels!


Get plenty of exercise

Dogs need exercise every day, even if it’s just a brief walk or a little playtime. Dogs that don’t have plenty of exercise in their daily routine not only are at risk for obesity but also increased stress and anxiety levels. Stress and anxiety create cortisol which can cause stomach issues. 


Feed them dog food for sensitive stomachs

Dog food formulas that include ingredients that are packed with fiber, probiotics, and prebiotics are extremely beneficial to your dog’s gut health. Our High Energy, Super Meal, and Adult Performance formulas all include pumpkin as an ingredient. Pumpkin is a superfood for dogs, packed with fiber, prebiotics, and vitamins A, C, and E. This makes it not only good for dogs that suffer from diarrhea but with constipation as well.


In conclusion, making sure your dog is hydrated and gets plenty of exercise is part of making sure they are all around healthy.
