Best Dog Kibble for Dogs That Are Vomiting Food

Updated on August 29, 2014

It is never a great sight to watch your dog vomit all over the carpeted floor. The reasons, of course, are never known until you visit the vet. However, in majority of cases, it's usually the food your dog ate recently. So to avoid this most popular reason for dogs vomiting food, make sure to feed your pets with quality dog food in the first place; you can also consult with a vet and see if your pup requires any dog supplements/vitamins for a healthier living.

Dogs are a very valuable asset to our lives, we care for them and cherish them, so if your dog continues to vomit after trying one of the following products, then you should most certainly take your dog to the vet.

Now, there are quite a few options that one can give to their dog to stop them from vomiting, and to make sure that their dog’s stomach doesn't get as upset again. Here is a list of products for dogs with sensitive stomachs that might do the trick.

Purina Pro Plan Select Dry Adult Dog Food

This dog food is primarily consisted of salmon. Salmon provides a great protein source for dogs and it also provides a very good taste. Salmon also allows a dog to gain more energy while it strengthens their bones.

Purina Pro Plan was created for dogs with very sensitive stomachs. This dog food is also dry, which will make the dog’s stomach less upset. Wet Dog food tends to make a dog’s stomach upset. This is because the bacteria tend to live on wet dog foods causing the stomach to become very nauseous.

Hill's Science Diet Adult Sensitive Stomach Dry Dog Food

This dog food contains chicken and whole grains. It also consists of multivitamins to assure that food from this product doesn't upset a dog’s stomach. However, there is a trick when using this dog food. Dogs shouldn't be thrown right into this product. They have to gradually take small steps until they are comfortable enough to eat this dog food, which tends to take between 7-10 days.

Hill's Science Diet dry food is great for dogs that have vomiting problems. Studies have also shown that this dog food gives all dogs more strength to get throughout the day. Also, energy that is lost while being sick is ultimately restored. This dog food is one of the best creations known to man for providing dogs with the right health precautions they deserve.

Holistic Select Radiant Adult Health Dry Dog Food

This dog food main focus is to make sure that every dog health begins at the digestive system. The product helps transport nutrients while breaking down and getting rid of waste that isn’t needed in dogs. If waste that isn’t needed in dogs stay for a long period of time, this can very well cause health problems such as vomiting, digestive diseases, and hard stool. Waste can also weaken the immune system making it highly likely that a dog can get sick more often and faster.

Holistic Select Radiant kibble contains: natural fiber, prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, herbs, and botanicals. Digestive enzymes are critical when it comes to the digestive system. When dogs or even human eat food, digestive enzymes allows the body to absorb the nutrients that a dog or a person needs. This is why it's one of the best dog foods out there for a sick and sensitive stomach.

Furthermore, there is one very important ingredient on the list, and that is anchovies. Anchovies are a great source for B Vitamins. Anchovies also help the digestive system, and have plenty of minerals that are great for your big or small pups.

Royal Canin Dry Dog Food

This dog food is said to be very good for bulldogs, but obviously it will work with majority of breeds. There are balanced fibers that help the digestive system to stay on a more balanced course. The most beneficial products associated with this dog food are soy and eggs. Both of these products are proteins that help the digestive system out in extensive ways.

The pieces are small, making it easier for your smaller friends to grasp and chew. Even though this dog food is a bit on the expensive side, it’s well worth the price. It’s pretty cool that there is dog food made just for bulldogs. It lets the bulldog owner know that bulldogs are really cared for throughout the world. Pet owners, if you have a bulldog, choose this product. This food is specifically made for a bulldog for a reason.

Nummy Tum Tum Pure Sweet Potato for Pets

This pet food consists of pure sweet potatoes and pumpkin that serves for a great tasting dog treat. However, dog owners should be aware that this dog food should be served to a limit of 1 tablespoon per 10pounds. So if your dog weighs 50 pounds, your dog should get 5 table spoons, not the whole can. If a person isn’t careful with instructions, this can actually cause for an act of disaster.

Nummy Tum Tum is a stomach soother that greatly helps out the digestive system. When this food is being digested, chemicals in the food help the food to keep moving down the digestive track. This is great for dogs who can’t keep any food down. While eating this food, it’s almost impossible for a dog to continue vomiting. If a dog owner is looking for a product that helps keep food down, then this product would most certainly do the trick! I highly recommend this product to dog owners!

Homemade recipe dog treat

Tummy problems occasionally happen with every dog. They don't always threw up but when they do, it's still nothing to panic about. If you feed your canine the way you're supposed to be feeding, then the risk of their stomachs becoming sensitive is minimal, right? So just stick to what's best for your friend.

Now, once the pup gets better and recovers, here's a couple of really amazing recipes for a treat for your little friend. You can find more of these types of recipes in cook and author's book The Ultimate Dog Treat Cookbook (link to the book is listed below).

Chunk Chicken and Sweet Potato Treats

"These treats have tasty chunks of chicken and sweet potato and appeal to even the fussiest eaters," says the author of the book, Liza Palika.

You will need...

  • 11⁄4 cups of 1⁄2-inch pieces of cooked chicken
  • 1⁄2 cup of 1⁄2-inch pieces of cooked sweet potato
  • 2 cups all-purpose whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup evaporated lowfat milk
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together well, making sure the pieces of chicken and sweet potato are thoroughly coated.
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto greased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Remove from oven, let cool thoroughly, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Warning: serve only when completely cool, and then watch your dog finish this in seconds.

Microwave Oatmeal Balls

Liza Palika says of these: "These cookies are small, round, very hard, and crunchy. If made small enough, they can also serve as great training treats. If you make these as training treats — by making them smaller than recommended — reduce the cooking time. You want the treats to be firm and dry when taken out of the microwave but not scorched. They will harden as they cool."

What you'll need...

  • 3⁄4 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour (white, whole wheat, barley, or potato)
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1⁄4 cup flaxseeds
  • 1⁄4 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium beef bouillon powder
  • 1⁄3 cup melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1⁄2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup quick oats, for coating treats


  1. Mix the first six ingredients well.
  2. Add the butter, egg, and water and mix until the mixture forms a ball of dough.
  3. Spread the second cup of quick oats on a breadboard.
  4. Form marble-size pieces of dough into balls, rolling each in the oats.
  5. Place 12 oat-covered balls on a heavy-duty paper plate (not Styrofoam).
  6. Microwave the plate of treats at 50% power for 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. Remove from the microwave, let cool thoroughly, and store in an airtight container.

Another healthy and tasty treat for your recovering dog. Enjoy.

      I came to read your hubs on acting, but this really got me. You seems to know your stuff about dogs. I don't have one, but I have friends and families who do. So I thought figured I might learn a thing or two to pass on to them.

      Great hub. Voted up and useful, especially for dog owners. Pinned!!!
