Blue Buffalo and Dr. Evan Antin are working together to help pet parents understand dietary triggers better
Working together, Dr. Antin and Blue Buffalo have offered up some tips for pet parents, as well as a few product ideas for anyone looking to change things up with your dog’s diet.
- Hydration is important and if your pup is dealing with digestive issues, using ice chips can help to settle their stomach while still keeping them hydrated.
- Opt for foods that are gentle on the stomach. A bland diet can help following stomach problems, and will often be recommended by a veterinarian for a few days. Bland diets may include rice and chicken or even cottage cheese (the fat free kind).
- Your dog may need to switch to a limited ingredient diet, which is where Blue Buffalo comes into the picture as they offer their line of Blue Basics. “BLUE Basics provides a unique ingredient offering that benefits immune health while supporting healthy skin/coat and gentle digestion. Basics is a limited ingredient diet, meaning it has a single animal protein source, no chicken or beef, no dairy or eggs.”
- Your pup may need to be on a digestive care diet that helps them in the long run with those tummy troubles. In this case, your pup may need to try ” BLUE True Solutions Blissful Belly, which supports digestive health naturally with prebiotic fiber, and high-quality, natural ingredients clinically proven to support specific digestive needs and recommended by veterinarians and animal nutritionists.”
