Potato Diet for Diarrhea
This is a good short term diet for dogs with soft, "pudding-like" diarrhea. It can be fed for up to five days.
Cut into pieces:
50% white potatoes
50% sweet potatoes
slice of turnip
slice of leek
Boil this combination and add a small amount of boiled beef, turkey, or chicken for flavor.
Use these quantity guidelines to prepare a serving for a small, medium or large dog. For dogs weighing:
- under 20 lbs., use a quarter inch slice of the vegetables and a small sized white and sweet potato
- 20-40 lbs., use a half inch slice of the vegetables and a medium sized white and sweet potato
- 40 plus lbs., use a 1 inch slice of the vegetables and a large sized white and sweet potato
