The Diarrhea busting diet

Get the PDF Version!

A dog’s body is an energy system in which he takes in food and water, processes them through the digestive tract and then excretes what he doesn’t need.  When things aren’t quite processing as they should, the result is diarrhea.  It is important to determine what is causing the diarrhea but it is also important to get the diarrhea stopped to prevent the greyhound from becoming dehydrated.

The Diarrhea Busting Diet of regular RAW ground beef, and white rice will help you get your greyhound’s system back on track.

Prepare the mixture using 2 part raw hamburger to 1 part cooked rice.  Mix the hamburger and rice while rice is warm and once mixed store in the refrigerator.

First Feeding

The first meal is usually an evening meal – feed ½ of the portion that the dog would normally eat.

First Full Day

Feed using the same portions as you would with regular food.  The diarrhea does not ease after one full day of eating the hamburger and rice mix.  If it does not ease after one full day, a visit to the veterinarian is recommended.

Second Full Day

Feed using the same portions as you would with regular food.

Third Full Day

It is time to start gradually reintroducing kibble by mixing in 1 part kibble to 3 parts of the hamburger/rice mix.   Feed using the same portions as you would with regular food.

Fourth Full Day

Mix equal parts of kibble and the hamburger/rice mix. Feed using the same portions as you would with regular food.

Fifth Full Day

Mix three parts of kibble to one part of the hamburger/rice mix. Feed using the same portions as you would with regular food.
By the sixth day of feeding, the dog should be fully back on his regular food.  If the diarrhea reappears upon reintroduction of the regular food, consider a switch in food.
