We offered these tips as an option to clients when we had no same-day appointments and dogs were suffering from a minor upset tummy.

If followed carefully, these natural home remedies may help sooth your dog's self-limiting upset stomach or even heal it in the best cases. However, while many cases may benefit from a home remedy, there are some instances, where home remedies are not sufficient and where medical treatment is the only choice.
Please see your vet if your dog is acting sick, lethargic, is running a fever and is not acting as his normal self. In some cases, the upset stomach may be caused by an underlying cause that needs promptly addressed. These are cases where an upset stomach may be due to serious conditions such as Parvo virus, an instestinal obstruction, gastro-enteritis and pancreatitis.
By the way, did you know that the great majority of our appointments were cases of dogs with an upset stomach? Dogs seem to be blessed with a very strong vomiting reflex, which means that they will vomit for even mild stomach upsets.

Do not try home remedies for your dog's upset stomach if he is acting lethargic, vomiting continuously, having continuous squirts of diarrhea. dog has bloody stools, and is getting quickly dehydrated.
