1) Stop feeding the dog table food immediately.

2) This means no salsa and chips as well. No human snacks.

3) It’s not cool to give your dog a sip of beer once in a while either.

4) The kids may think that giving the dog ice cream is cool.  Let the dog  sleep  in their room for a couple of nights.  This will change their minds quickly.

5) No treats unless they are low in fat and of high quality dog treats, in addition no cheese, beans, hot dogs and scraps. Some people use table scrapes as treats to teach their dog new tricks. What is that all about?

6) It may be time to change your dog’s food with a more nutritious platter. Remember to introduce any new food gradually, a one to four ratio the first day and increase the amount every two days after that. You don’t want to upset that boiler any more than it is.

7) Give the dog a cup of papaya juice. It works wonders to settle the dog’s stomach and they love it.

8) Yogurt has similar qualities and dogs love it as well. Only do this until the wind dies down. Should be rather quick.

9) If you feed your dog once a day try feeding your dog less but more often. Dog’s in a hurry to eat will shallow air in the process. This causes air to get trapped in their intestines and stomach.

10) You can also try to improve their digestion by offering them a pro-biotic. Some foods come with pro or pre-biotics. Check with your local pet store for more information.

11) Visually check your dogs stood for tiny white worms or parasites. If you see any of  these get your dog to the vet for the proper treatment.
