The food made my dog's stomach upset: Common reasons & solutionsUpdated 19 days ago

Understanding why your dog might have an upset stomach is crucial for their health and well-being. Here are the two most common reasons for an upset stomach in dogs and how to address them effectively:

1. Switching Foods Too Fast

Switching your dog's food too quickly can cause digestive issues. When transitioning to a new food, their digestive system needs time to adjust.

Solution: Transition to Bully Max dog food gradually over a week to prevent stomach upset. Follow these steps for a smooth transition:

  • Days 1-2: Mix 25% Bully Max with 75% of your dog's current food.
  • Days 3-4: Mix 50% Bully Max with 50% of your dog's current food.
  • Days 5-6: Mix 75% Bully Max with 25% of your dog's current food.
  • Day 7: Feed 100% Bully Max.

2. Feeding Too Much Food

Overfeeding can also lead to an upset stomach. Bully Max is higher in calories, so your dog may not need as much food as with other brands.

Solution: Feed your dog less food to match their caloric needs. Use this dog food calculator to determine the correct feeding amount. Simply input your dog's weight and activity level to find the right portion size.

Additional Tip: Settling an Upset Stomach

If your dog's stomach is already upset, you can help soothe it with a bland diet. We recommend feeding your dog white rice and boiled chicken for 24-48 hours. This combination is gentle on the stomach and can help reduce irritation.

By following these tips, you can ensure your dog maintains a healthy digestive system and enjoys their meals without discomfort. If you have any concerns or need further assistance, please contact our customer support team. We're here to help!
