Not a food recommendation, but would HIGHLY recommend this probiotic chew from Amazon. My dog thinks they are a treat and it solidified her poop in about 3 days.

I have a dog with the most sensitive stomach, and we have tried about a dozen foods over the years. He has now been on Diamond Naturals adult for about 6 months and has not had ANY upset belly at all. Both dogs seem in great weight, health, with nice coats.

My dog is sensitive to chicken AND of course I’m trying to keep him eating grains. It was a challenge finding something but Wellness brand was a huge hit with him. He’s eaten it for years without getting tired of it. He likes the canned wet version as well.

Look into raw diet. I know there is a lot of controversy over a raw diet but it worked for us. Our Doberman had a very sensitive stomach and we slowly changed to a raw diet and it did him great. He lived until 12 years old. However do your own research.

Acana Lamb/apple n rice kibble limited ingredients. Tucker also gets dehydrated beef hearts, duck treats/toppers and wolf fish skins which he LOVES! Tucker gets terrible skin allergies, June-Aug. Apaquil plus keeping him clean and using argan oil during this time helps a lot. Good luck!

Pro plan sensitive stomach has worked for me. There’s also Purina Savor for sensitive stomach. I’ve had great results with them both. Pricey but others with good claims are higher. Check out the ingredient list compared to the one you’ve been feeding. Stuff that’s grain free isn’t any better. If you think it’s extreme Science diet or other rx foods might help. Typically Science diet is mostly grain but is great in certain instances. All canned isn’t good for their teeth if they aren’t an issue

Royal Canin Gastrointestinal for dogs. Everything upsets my female Doberman’s stomach and gives her diarrhoea except this food. The vet recommended it and for her to stay on it permanently. She has a really sensitive stomach but this food works well. give her the dry version of it.
