Sensitive stomachs

Dogs can get dodgy tummies too.
Butternut Box can help put the fun back in to mealtimes.

Sensitive stomachs

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 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 freshly prepared diet with no troubles.

The Butternut Box story began with a dog who couldn’t stop farting. We know all about the difficulties of finding a food that works for your dog, and we truly believe that wholesome, freshly prepared meals are the best you can give your dog. We gently cook our meals just like you would at home, which means that they’re delicious as well as easy to digest. They contain no known allergens*, fillers, preservatives or other nasties, and have the seal of approval from hundreds of dogs with sensitive tums.

*our food has no added grain, wheat, gluten, corn, dairy, lactose, soy, sugar, salt and egg. Please get in touch with our Customer Love team if you need any specific advice about allergies.

Our story

With apologies to unicorns, otters and the gorilla who played the drums in the Cadbury's advert, we think dogs are the best animals to have ever walked the earth.

It’s why we started Butternut Box. Because we want to help every single one of them get the food they need to live long, and live well.
