Dogs can have a sensitive stomach for many reasons and your poorly pup could be missing out on a whole host of fun activities because you’re worried he might have diarrhea at the worst possible time.
The first step tro remedying the issue is to figure out what’s causing your dog to have a sensitive stomach in the first place.

- Overeating or over drinking.
- Becoming over excited.
- Maybe you’re changing your dog food brands too often.
- Giving your dog the wrong type of food.
- Your dog is living in a stressful environment.
- Worms or other intestinal bacteria.
