Just like their owners, dogs can suffer from stomach sensitivity and can be prone to digestive issues. Some breeds are more often affected by this than others - it’s quite common for German Shepherds, for example, to have a sensitive tummy.
There are many reasons why dogs can suffer from stomach upsets. Diet can play a big role, but symptoms can also be related to underlying health issues such as infections, inflammatory bowel disease, or pancreatitis. Dogs with a sensitive stomach may suffer from excessive flatulence, diarrhoea or irregular stools, and vomiting. It’s always worth talking to your vet if your dog regularly suffers with these symptoms, but Butternut Box can often help keep a sensitive dog’s stomach settled.
In the first box of food that we send out to your dog, we include a built-in transition programme to which is designed to get them used to the new flavours and textures of the meals, while also giving their digestion a chance to get used to the new ingredients gradually. This usually helps even the most sensitive of tummies adjust to a fresh, home-cooked diet with no troubles.
The Butternut Box story began with dog who couldn’t stop farting.
