When dealing with a dog with an upset stomach, it is best to start with 4 or 5 small portions of food when trying to get his system going again. You can give him one or two of these treats at first, or try some homemade dog food for an upset stomach.

If your dog seems to cut back on small portions, you can increase the portion size and feed 3 to 4 portions on the second day. You can add these treats as a food supplement to encourage him to eat his kibble or try giving them between small meals to calm his digestive tract.

If all goes well, by the third day your dog should be ready to return to his regular diet.

If at any time you notice that your dog's symptoms are worsening, adjust the portions to a smaller amount and spread out the feeding times. A little food will go a long way when your dog suffers from an upset stomach.

Dog Treats for Upset Stomach 2

These dog treats are made with pumpkin, flaxseed, and ginger – 3 ingredients shown to help soothe and soothe an upset stomach. Please note that these delicacies are not a panacea.

If your dog's symptoms continue to worsen, you should call your veterinarian for advice. They may recommend an over-the-counter treatment or want you to bring your pet in for an exam.

  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 6 tablespoons. coconut flour
  • 6 tablespoons. water
  • 1 tablespoon. Melted coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon. Ground ginger

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. The dough will start out sticky, but will firm up as you mix the ingredients.

You can roll out the dough on a floured surface and use cookie cutters or a pizza cutter to make shapes. However, as you can see in my video guide above, I simply roll the dough into small balls and place them on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

I use about 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie. Keep in mind that these treats will add calories to your dog's regular diet, so you don't want them to be too big.

Bake the cookies for about 20 minutes. They will begin to crack and brown when they are done.

How to store: Store leftover treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 12 to 14 days. Remember that homemade treats do not have the preservatives that store-bought products do.

These homemade dog treats will not last as long as their commercial counterparts. If you wish, you can freeze the treats in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
