Brown Rice

Lola has a touch of the runs... will brown rice do the same trick as white? I only have brown rice in the house & would love to make her some now to mix in with her breakfast rather than waiting until I go to the market later today. Just wondering if it would be as effective as white. Has anyone given their dogs brown rice instead of white when they have an upset tummy?

Thanks!

Susie, Lola's Mom

I am not sure. Brown rice has much more fiber, so it may not have the same "binding" effect that white rice has. I have used boiled, cubed potato instead of rice when my boys have had the runs, and that did help.

I actually prefer potato to rice because it doesn't get stuck in their beards.

I hope Lola feels better soon!

I agree with Jane about the fiber..............
PS-I keep a can of pumpkin just in case.

Sally, have you ever had to clean up after pumpkin squirts? YUCK! I will never do pumpkin again for loose stools. For constipation, yes, but not for the runs.

Thanks everyone! I ran out to the market and bought some white rice. She was thrilled to have something other than her kibble and ate it all up. Hopefully it does the trick b/c my mom is watching her thurs - sun. I don't want my mom to have to deal with a poopy butt dog!

Funny that you mention that....whenever my mom was watching my dogs for me, Scout would inevitably get the runs. I think it was just the stress of missing us so I put boiled potato cubes in his meal as a preventative measure.

Linda, let's just suffice it to say that pumpkin squirts stain everything!

Good thing I didn't give Lola pumpkin then b/c my floor would be stained. Her tummy is worse She got up at 1am and about every hour, then half hour after to go. Once she didn't make it to the front door....good thing it was on the wood floor. Poor thing felt so bad. I'm waiting for the vet to open so I can bring her in. I've never seen a dog have such explosive diarrhea

Hope its nothing serious Guess its a good sign that she doesn't seemed to be bothered by it. She's still full of energy and tossing her ball around right now. Little devil, not even the runs slow her down!
