Bland Diet Recipes for Dogs With Upset Stomach
Adrienne is a former veterinary hospital assistant, certified dog trainer, behavior consultant, and author of "Brain Training for Dogs."
The recipes for a dog bland diet were quite popular when we got frantic last-minute calls from owners dealing with doggy diarrhea at the vet's office. It was often too late for scheduling the dog to come in, yet symptoms were mild enough to skip the after-hour emergency hospital referral. So, after performing a form of patient triage over the phone, we often gave out these recipes. We had these recipes readily stored in our notebooks so we could glance at them as needed, but most of us knew them by heart after giving them out over and over.
Most clients were often grateful of being offered bland diet recipes for dogs option since it saved them often from a vet trip and a costly bill, and not surprisingly, the case of digestive upset often resolved on its own and the dog's chart was put back on the shelf. I could almost count on my hands the number of dogs who came in a few days later still with some issues.
So when should you try a bland diet for dogs with digestive issues? Bland diets should be exclusively used for mild cases when you are aware of what could have possibly been the culprit and it's not a medical emergency. For instance, if you just switched your dog's diet and didn't follow the protocol of introducing the new food gradually or if you know your endured in a dietary indiscretion such as lapped up some milk and you know for a fact that he is a bit lactose intolerant. Other examples where a bland diet may be helpful is when dogs get a bit of a tummy upset from being in the car, moving or undergoing changes that make them a bit stressed.
You shouldn't try a bland diet if you're not sure what your dog ingested and what could have triggered the digestive upset. There are chances your dog may have ingested something potentially toxic, and in such a case, you definitively shouldn't wasting your time on trying home remedies! Also, you shouldn't be trying a dog bland diet if your dog has severe symptoms such as continuous vomiting, continuous liquid diarrhea, lethargy, bloody or tarry stools, lack of appetite, fever and other worrisome symptoms that should warrant a vet visit.
There are also many other medical conditions that may look like a case of digestive upset, but that can be a much more serious issue. Puppies with vomiting or diarrhea should see the vet as they can get dehydrated quickly and to rule out life threatening parvo. There are many other serious conditions that warrant a vet visit. Please use extreme caution and common sense when trying to treat something at home. Time is of the essence in some cases, so don't make the mistake of regretting a choice that could turn out risky. When in doubt, get on route to your dog's vet. Adhere to the better safe than sorry protocol to prevent any anguish.
Bland Dog Diet Recipes
What's a dog bland diet recipe? It's a recipe meant to be given to dogs with some form of self-limiting digestive upset. In this case, we're tackling mostly bland diets for dog diarrhea. For bland diets for upset stomach and vomiting protocols, read my article on vet approved dog upset stomach home remedies.
The most common recipes for bland diets include low-fat foods. The following are several recipes of bland diet for dogs with digestive upset. Dr. McCullough on the College of Veterinary Medicine - University of Illinois website suggests withholding food (not water) for 12 to 24 hours prior to feeding a bland diet. If you own a very young puppy or a small breed prone to dog hypoglycemia, consult with your vet first .
Recipe 1: Classic Rice and Hamburger Bland Diet for Dogs
Boil the rice in a container and make sure it's well cooked and tender. Cooking it separately from the hamburger helps reduce absorption of fat. In the meanwhile, boil in another container some lean hamburger, making sure you drain off all the fat and that you're using a lean cut. For greater benefits, the rice should comprise the bulky part of the meal. "Start your pet on small frequent meals of the boiled hamburger and rice and see if the diarrhea stops" further suggests Dr. McCullough on the College of Veterinary Medicine - University of Illinois website.
Recipe 2: Classic Rice and Chicken Bland Diet for Dogs
Boil the rice in a container and make sure it's well cooked and tender. In the meanwhile, boil in another container the skinless and boneless chicken breast. For greater benefits, the rice should comprise the bulky part of the meal. Veterinarian and Just Answer expert Dr. Fiona suggests a mixture of 75% cooked white rice, and 25% low fat protein such as boiled chicken breast with any fat scooped off.
Recipe 3: Ground Turkey and Plain Pumpkin Bland Diet for Dogs
This recipe is recommended by veterinarian Karen Becker (see video below) which offers an interesting twist on the classic bland diet recipes many vets recommend. She states that even lean hamburger contains fat which is not ideal for a bland diet and can exacerbate the diarrhea and that rice can ferment in the dog's stomach causing gassiness. She therefore suggests cooking ground turkey and adding pureed plain pumpkin (not the pie type with added spices).
Recipe 4: Plain Scrambled Egg
Don't have rice or chicken or hamburger or turkey or pumpkin? Don't despair. Some scrambled eggs may be an option for your dog's bland diet according to South Peninsula Veterinary Emergency Clinic.
How long should you feed this diet? .It should be fed for a minimum of 3 to 5 days, by which the stools should be better formed. Afterward, you can start gradually mixing the bland diet with your dog's regular diet over the next several days until the regular diet replaces the bland diet totally according to Mokena Animal Clinic.

How to Properly Use a Bland Diet to Treat Dogs with Diarrhea
Nutrition Nuggets Blog
Veterinarians often recommend owners feed dogs that have diarrhea a diet consisting of boiled hamburger and white rice for a few days. This type of bland, easily digested diet gives the intestinal tract a bit of a break while still providing needed calories and nutrients.
The recommendation is appropriate, so long as the dog doesn’t have any other worrisome symptoms such as vomiting, abdominal pain, or weakness, the caregivers understand that if the diarrhea doesn’t resolve quickly, the dog must be brought in for an exam, and the dog soon goes back to eating his normal diet.
Owners sometimes will treat their dog’s diarrhea with a homemade diet without first consulting a veterinarian, which is fine so long as they abide by the provisos mentioned above. However, I recently ran across a case report concerning a dog whose caregivers didn’t, and the outcome was almost disastrous.
An 11-week-old Saint Bernard was picked up from his breeder. His new owners realized he had diarrhea and started feeding him a hamburger and rice diet and dewormed him. His diarrhea resolved but returned whenever they tried to feed a commercially available, chicken-based adult dog food. Presumably being aware that hamburger and rice alone was not a nutritionally complete diet, the owners modified their offerings by adding apple, broccoli, egg (including shells), a vitamin and mineral supplement, and a small amount of the chicken-based adult dog food to the hamburger and rice.
The dog was seen several times by a veterinarian for routine care and appeared to be doing well, until he was evaluated at a veterinary teaching hospital for bilateral forelimb lameness presumably associated with osteochondritis dissecans of both shoulders. While there, the dog developed severe seizures; at one point his body temperature rose to a potentially life-threatening 108 degrees Fahrenheit. Lab work revealed many abnormalities, including a very low blood calcium level that was the cause of his seizures. The attending veterinarians were able to save him after giving him intravenous fluids, valium, propofol, and infusions of calcium gluconate, intubating him and putting him on inhalant anesthetics and oxygen, and performing cold water gastric lavage. The dog was hospitalized for three days.
An analysis of the dog’s homemade diet revealed that it was severely deficient in calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D, all of which were provided at less than half the minimum levels required for growing dogs. Other deficiencies included sodium, chloride, iron, iodine, choline, copper, folic acid, vitamin A, linoleic acid, and taurine.
Once the dog’s condition was stable, he went home with oral calcium carbonate, calcitriol (a form of Vitamin D that helps the body make use of dietary calcium), taurine supplements, and a commercially available puppy food. A recheck of blood work approximately one month later revealed complete resolution of all abnormalities, and interestingly, the dog was also no longer lame.
I relate this tale not to scare you off from feeding dogs that have diarrhea a hamburger and rice diet, but to emphasize that such a nutritionally incomplete diet only be fed for a few days, and if the diarrhea doesn’t resolve, veterinary attention is essential. The long term feeding of a homemade diet should always be done under the supervision of a veterinary nutritionist.
