Full Answer

For mild stomach upset, a bit of unseasoned chicken, with the bones removed, along with white or brown rice can help give the dog energy while soothing its stomach. If the stomach issues persist, contact a veterinarian. White and brown rice are also common ingredients in commercial dog foods, especially formulas for sensitive stomachs. Brown rice is lower in fat than white rice, so it may be a better choice for a regular dietary supplement.
