Dogs may also need to eat a soft diet at some point. The most common, as happens to people, is because of vomiting and diarrhea. These situations can be derived from the excesses of food or the consumption of toxic substances. The soft diet for dogs will be the best solution for you to recover as soon as possible, and we tell you how to prepare it.

Soft diet for dogs

And why is a soft dog diet necessary? "The soft diet is recommended in episodes of gastroenteritis and in situations where we need highly palatable, savory, nutritious and digestible diets such as kidney, liver, cancer or other diseases in which the animal has decreased appetite or anorexia," says the veterinary Marisa López Leyva. "It is also used for recovery after surgery and when you want to go from a commercial dry diet, such as feed, to a Barf diet."

In these cases, your dog finds it difficult to digest the feed as well as being an unappetizing meal at those times. Therefore, the best option is to go to a soft diet to avoid a picture of malnutrition and dehydration. It is also important to consult your veterinarian to assess the health status of your dog and advise you what fits best according to your circumstances.
