Chicken and rice for dog with upset tummy

My dog threw up a lot last night. This morning he went to the door (like he always does when he needs to go potty) and when he got outside he started dry heaving and eventually threw up again. This time he ate it before it could even hit the ground. I can hear his tummy gurgling some too. I’ve heard of giving boiled chicken and rice for dogs with upset tummies, but what’s the appropriate rations?

My dog is sick upset stomach throwing up a couple of times hasn’t eaten today at all drank a lot of water earlier today but nothing since. About a month ago the same thing happened to her, so I gave her boiled chicken. She will not eat rice any other things you can suggest??

We’ve heard of pet parents giving their dogs plain canned pumpkin to help with an upset stomach. Start with 1-4 tablespoons depending on your dog’s size (less for smaller dogs, more for larger dogs). If it continues, take your dog to the vet. Keep us posted please. We hope she gets better soon!

Oh no! Hopefully your dog gets to feeling better soon! Cook up some rice and boil some chicken. We suggest starting with a half cup of rice and 4 ounces (about 1/2 a chicken breast); however, the portion can be larger or smaller depending on the dog. After the chicken is cooked, tear it into smaller pieces and mix it in with the cooked rice. It’s important that you do not season anything. Make sure he is drinking plenty of water. If he isn’t, add some water to the chicken and rice mixture to get him drinking again.

Mine is doing the same thing but it just started yesterday. He was actually raised on Chix, rice, green beans and carrots. It’s undigested when he throws up. Seems to be doing ok, but he acts like he is starving all the time and he inhales his food. Please help. He is a rescue and I love this puppy so much.

I’m so sorry Cherri. Are you currently feeding him the chicken and rice? Canned pumpkin also tends to help a pup’s upset tummy. Mix 1/4 cup in with the chicken and rice. Is he drinking his water still?
