Q. My dog keeps having tummy trouble. I've tried switching his food. Should I try an anti-bloat bowl, setting his food on a table, or something else?

A. First of all we need to know what kind of tummy trouble your dog has to give you the best advise. In my experience one diet that can settle your dog's tummy could be overcooked rice (30min) with extra water on it with bits of chicken also boiled without skin or fat. Overcooking the rice you've got a high digestible food. Use small portions and frequently and that will do. You also can find same but already made as Hill's i/d. I found that some dogs especially predisposed to stomach sensitivity are benefit from a mix of Hill's i/d and r/d (high fibre).
