Homemade chicken and rice is a bland food source often recommended by veterinarians to help dogs recover from diarrhea and/or vomiting. It is an easily digestible low-fat, single-protein, and single-carbohydrate source diet recommended especially for cases of gastrointestinal upset.  This protein and starch combination can also stimulate appetite when a dog is ill or recovering from surgery. While it’s not recommended for long-term use, cooked chicken and white rice has enough nutritional properties to put your dog back on the road to wellness.
