There are some different mixtures you can try, but the ingredients are the same. So let’s keep it simple for you by sharing this tried and trusted cure for occasional dog diarrhea.

Required Ingredients and their Healing value

Canned pumpkin

Canned pumpkin helps soften or loosens up the dog stool, thanks to its rich fiber content.

White rice

Yogurt (non-fat or low-fat PLAIN), Thanks to its natural probiotics can help restore the balance to the dog’s gut and get all the harmless bacteria thriving. This is especially useful with gas.

Boiled chicken

Boiled chicken without salt or anything added, can add a little substance to the dog’s diet and It’s a good protein source, and very bland.

Plain Mash

This is a great basic mash for dogs that turn up their nose at canned pumpkin or yogurt. Make sure the chicken is plain and that you just boil it.

The additional water makes this easy to eat and has the bonus of getting some much-needed fluid into your dog’s system.

You will need a boiled chicken, shredded, white rice and a half cup or so of warm water.

Cook the white rice and Boil the chicken. Shred the chicken into the cooked white rice and put roughly a half cup of warm water.

Mix thoroughly, and give to your dog in place of its usual meals. You can also give them in smaller quantities throughout the day which can be easier for their gut to accommodate. In terms of amount, feed based on your dog’s size.

Sweet Mash

For slight cases of soft stool, this tasty mash can help harden things thanks to the pumpkin, while ensuring the balance of bacteria gets back on track with the yogurt.

1/4 can canned pureed pumpkin, no additives


Blend up 2 tablespoons of plain live cultured yogurt with ¼ can pounded pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling.) Feed this in place of a usual meal, slowly introducing regular food over some days.


This is simply all the ingredients mashed into one. I will recommend breaking the ingredients into simpler recipes first. But if you are feeling up to a meal that includes more than just a few ingredients, this is a good one to try.

You will need a half cup of 100% Canned Pumpkin, a half cup of white rice
1 to 2 tablespoons of unflavored plain live culture yogurt and Plain boiled chicken( no salt) with a half cup of warm water


Boil a chicken and cook up to a half cup of white rice, (you can cook large batches and keep the extra rice on hand in the refrigerator).

Thoroughly mix a half cup of canned pumpkin and 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt into the rice, and then put the chicken, torn into bits.

Save any extra chicken for the next few meals, and give your mish-mash in place of normal meals until your dog’s tummy is back on track.

The amount of ingredients completely depends on the size of your dog. You can Stick to the general ratios or trust your judgment.

If your dog starts to feel a little sick and has a bit of gas/diarrhea/vomiting it’s usually nothing to be worried about, and after ruling out anything serious, this can be cured with nothing more than a little break for the GI system and some mild meals.

Do keep in mind that if your dog can’t keep down the water, a trip to the vet house is often necessary to get fluids quickly. While these may work miracles for some dogs, if yours has an allergy to one of the foods, this meal won’t be of much help.

These recipes are blended to save the dog from stomach dilemmas and save your house from a heck of a lot of nasty stains too.
