Does your dog ever get an upset stomach, diarrhea, or constipation?
If you’re nodding your head yes, you’re definitely not alone—these things affect most dogs at some point in their life and dogs with sensitive stomachs may have frequent symptoms.
To help your dog feel better, a natural digestive supplement (something you can keep in your pantry for “surprise” upset stomach incidents) might be just what they need!
Digestive issues—such as nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation—are some of the most common conditions leading to veterinary visits.
There are many reasons why a dog might have an upset stomach, including:
Symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe in nature. Sometimes the symptoms pass quickly on their own, while other times your pup may feel down for a few days. When in doubt, it’s best to err on the side of caution and check with your veterinarian.
If your pup suffers from digestive symptoms, it’s important to figure out if there’s an underlying cause that could be treated or managed—such as a food allergy or parasite infestation. Your veterinarian will let you know the most likely causes based on your pet’s history, symptoms, and physical exam, and then recommend any needed diagnostic tests.
Of course, if your pet is severely ill, treatments will be implemented at your visit—possibly including medications for upset stomach, and fluid and electrolyte support. If, however, your dog is otherwise healthy but has occasional bouts of stomach issues, your veterinarian may recommend some measures you can take at home to help them feel better, such as a bland diet. One possible home care solution for your pup could be nutritional supplementation with Fromm Family Nutritionals.
Nutritionals are pâté canned foods for dogs, which aid in digestive support.
Here are some benefits Nutritionals provide to your dog:
Nutritionals for dogs include a unique fiber blend of miscanthus grass, pumpkin, and chicory root extract. All ingredients work in harmony to promote a healthy, natural solution to digestive distress.
Think of it like a digestive “band-aid.” You don’t always know when you’ll need it, but you don’t want to be caught without it.
Times when Nutritionals will be most useful include…
Just keep in mind that it’s not a complete and balanced diet on its own. It’s designed to be used as a supplement.
During times of digestive distress, you can replace up to 80% of your dog’s regular food with Nutritionals in the short-term. Gradually reduce this amount after 2-3 days.
If Fromm Family Nutritionals helps your dog and you’d like to use this digestive aid long-term, simply replace up to 20% of your dog’s daily food ration with one of the two Nutritionals recipes.
Note: If your dog has food allergies or is on a prescription diet, it’s best to check with your veterinarian prior to feeding anything new.
As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Here are a few preventive measures you can take to help your dog’s gut stay healthy and balanced long-term…
Mild, transient digestive issues are usually nothing to worry about, but they’re no fun for your pet. Also, they’re no fun for you since you may worry about your dog or spend more time cleaning up messes than you’d like to.
In an otherwise healthy dog with mild symptoms, Fromm Family Nutritionals may be just the thing you need to give your dog some much-needed relief in a pinch.
Your dog will love the taste—and you’ll love seeing your pup feel better.
