Is basmati rice good to firm up a dogs stool or should it be normal rice?

If your dog has diarrhea, stop feeding her the foods you normally give her. Mix equal amounts of boiled lean ground beef or boiled shredded chicken breast with any boiled white rice. Do not use brown or wild rice. Basmati rice is okay. Of course, check with your vet first and ask him or her to suggest the portion of food appropriate for the size of your dog.

If your dog has loose stools that look like soft-serve ice cream, try adding one or two tablespoons of 100% canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) to your pet's food at each meal. Pumpkin is a wonderful, natural way to regulate a dog's digestive tract.
