Good info for Dog owners

My Katie-dog had tummy trouble the other day. Her belly kept rumbling and she was really lathargic. She must've gone outside and eaten grass 5 times, with no luck of throwing up whatever she must've eaten (I'm guessing a moth or cricket).
Anyway, after 12 hours of it not getting better, I called the vet. They said to boil some chicken and serve it with plain white rice.
So, here I am, cooking for my dog.....
She ate it (with gusto, as she only gets dry food) and within 20 minutes, she was back to her bouncy-like-tigger self.
...Just some info that's good to know...

My vet told me the same thing about white rice, and it does work for upset stomachs. I didnt know the same was true with chicken, but my dog loves chicken anyway

Do you have bunnies in the neighbourhood jkath? Our dog likes to "sample" their pellets, and they make her VERY sick. Same treatment here. Good thought posting it.

Our vet had us cook ground beef with white rice for our dog. When she got older, it was about all she could eat.

White rice is good if they have "the runs" just like it is for us...Chicken can cause gas. Maybe he thought the dogs would eat if if it had flavor in it. Dove loves rice..she always gets some covered in water when we have it.

I thank you, Koapaka thanks you. I also give him some Kaopectate on the advice of my vet, and it works very well.
