Q. I was feeding my Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Whole Earth Farms dry grain free kibble. She had vomiting and diarrhea. Any suggestions on the best food

Answered By

A. Starve for 12 hours of vomiting then gradually reintroduce food, something bland such as chicken and rice. Just very small amounts to start with. Then gradually introduce a normal diet. Royal canin and hills science are very good. If your dog has a sensitive tummy you need to introduce it slowly over 7-10 days to prevent vomiting and diarrhea. If the vomiting continues then you need to see your vet as soon as possible as dehydration would be a concern.
