Great Pyrenees Digestive System

by MICHELLE
(NASHVILLE)

Well, my 2 year old rescue dog suffers from separation anxiety. Ok, we are working through this. And this may be unrelated but he seems to have a very sensitive stomach. He eats sensitive stomach food and on occasion will get some chicken breast topping. That's it. Does this breed have a sensitive stomach or is just my dog. Then he just barfs it all up. Doesn't seem sick but maybe once a week. No blood either end.

Feeding
by: Anonymous

I suspect you have your dog on vet food. I'd go and talk to a pet store owner with diet knowledge.

I've not heard of sensitive stomachs although I've not heard of it being an issue.

Perhaps the chicken topping is the problem. Is it raw chicken? You shouldn't mix raw and kibble in one meal. Feed chicken one meal and kibble in the second meal.

If you have not had your dog to a vet, have him checked over at the vet's.

If you want your dog on the purest form of food (no fillers or additives), have a look at this article in Dogs Naturally http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/raw-feeding-primer/

50/50
by: Ed A from NJ

Every dog is different, my female had the most sensitive tummy if I kept her on her grain free kibble and white meat chicken she was fine. But any change in diet or someone slipping her a table scrap of food was all it took to cause an upset. On the other hand my male was like a billy goat he could eat anything and was always solid. The one exception to the rule was corn. It seems Pyrenees are predisposed to a corn allergy! So you may have a sensitive doggie find the combination and stick to it. By the way my girl with the sensitive tummy did fine and had a great life staying with me 14 years!

Thank you.
by: Michelle

Thank you. I have started writing down the circumstances as to when Russell regurgitates.
Is it after a walk? Is it hot? Was he having a bout of anxiety from being alone for all of 5 minutes. Whatever. Thanks so much. He doesn't get any treats, just sensitive tummy food and cooked chicken meat to bat around in an empty container to keep him occupied when I run out. We have had him 5 months.

Sensitive Tummy
by: Chloe's Mom

My Great Pyrenees has a very sensitive tummy. I took her off of food with artificial coloring. I am presently feeding her "Blue" for older dogs. She is 8 yrs old. She is going great. She has not had any tummy trouble since the change.

Actually it was prozac
by: Nashville

My vet prescribed 40 mg of dog Prozac as I was pulling out my hair over his separation anxiety. After two months she changed him to same dose every other day. On the following day that he got it, he would barf stuff up. Now he gets 20 mg daily and in a few weeks we will drop it again. What a difference it has made.
I just think the rescue process was very hard on him. He is a super dog.

Sensitive Stomach
by: Birmingham Dan

My 3-yr-old, Molly, has a somewhat sensitive stomach. I feed her Merrick kibble and she can tolerate changing from one flavor to another without any trouble; however, if I give her meat as an occasional treat (grilled chicken or pork or steak), then I have to watch her closely because it has caused her to have diarrhea on numerous occasions. More times than not, she has no problem, but thank God I own a steam cleaner! From all I've ever read, I thought that actually having some meat in her diet would be good for her, plus she loves it, but a little too much and her stomach just doesn't seem to handle it. She gets regular vet visits and has no health issues.

Culturelle
by: Russell

The vet recommended culturelle for my dog and it has worked wonders. No runny poo and no throwing up and he seems to look forward to his meals.
