== == * Yes, in some dogs. I feed my dogs twice a day (once in the morning and once at dinnertime.) I find it stops too much acid in their stomach and vets do agree with this. I also use good brands of dog food (ask your vet or go Holistic) and mix hard with tinned food. You never just change a diet, but introduce the new brand of food a little at a time with the old brand. Some dogs are just sensitive to change. I would take your dog into the vets to be sure that is what it is and that your pet doesn't have other health issues. Some dogs can have a sensitive larynx. If the dog is older it could also be bad teeth. Get that general check-up for your dog. * When you switch a dog to a different brand of food you should always gradually introduce it over a span of 1 or 2 weeks. If you don't the dog could get sick. I suggest you feed a high quality food like Canidae, Wellness, Solid Gold, Fromm, Natural Balance, and Eagle Pack just to name a few. These foods don't have any of the bad ingredients that might cause your dog to get sick like corn by-products, wheat, gluten, soy, and dyes. You will see an improvement with in weeks. Stay away from grocery store brands they might be why your dog is feeling sick.
