Diseases that affect the stomach and intestines are extremely common in dogs. They run the gamut of infectious diseases such as bacterial, viral, and parasitic, to noninfectious disorders such as tumors, bloat, and obstruction. The symptoms are usually pretty obvious: vomiting, loss of appetite, abdominal bloating, constipation, or changes in behavior are all typical signs of gastrointestinal (GI) distress.

Puppies are curious like kids; they are always putting things in their mouth and Nothing causes more feeding your puppy table scraps.

If you want to avoid your puppy from stomach issues always remind yourself of these rules:

No junk food for you puppy.

Watch out for toxic foodstuffs.

Lock up human foods and medications, keeping them out of your dog’s reach.

In this case you should visit your vet to get all the necessary shots and keep them updated.or try to fast your dog for about 12 to 24 hours. Allow him access to fresh drinking water, but do not allow him to eat. You may find this extremely hard to do, however remember that to alleviate your pup from such pain, you need to empty his stomach first, After fasting, you can feed your pup a bland diet like a meal of 1 part boiled chicken (skinless and boneless white meat) to 2 parts boiled rice (brown or white) by straining the water after cooking a small amount of uncooked rice in a larger amount of water. Boil and stir 1 cup rice in 1 quart water for about twenty minutes, then strain the rice and give some of the warm or cooled rice water to your dog. You can also make a watery rice porridge by boiling already cooked rice in a pot of water or homemade veggie broth.
