Now, I want to share my experience and procedure to make homemade foods for dogs of sensitive stomach. I cordially invite you to read and apply these procedure to save your favorite puppies.
Some Quick Homemade Dog Food For Sensitive Stomach

2 cups of rice, 1 ½ pound of chicken meat in pieces, 1 ½ cups of vegetable mix (except garlic and onion), and 4 ½ cups of water.
Heat a large skillet, add meat, vegetables, rice, and water in it, and cook on medium heat to reduce heat. Once the mixture has boiled, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes, until all the ingredients, especially the rice, cook properly. Chicken and rice are very calming for a dog's stomach. It is also very effective in solving a stomach upset. Since dogs love chicken, they do not complain about eating this food.

1½ tablespoon cottage cheese, ½ pound of minced chicken meat, ½ cup of grated carrots, and 1 cup mashed potatoes.
Combine the chicken, carrots and mashed potatoes in a pot, and put in the microwave. Heat for about 3 minutes. When it cools, add the cottage cheese and give it to your pet. Carrots are full of vitamins, reduce stomach irritation, improve digestion and relieve constipation. They also help in the control of diarrhea and improve vision. Add a little sweetness, hence your dog will love having carrots included in their food.

½ pound of meat, 1 ½ carrots, 1 ½ potatoes, 1 stalk of celery, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and 1 liter of chicken broth.
First, you have to fried meat with olive oil in a saucepan. Once it turns golden brown, put it in the broth for about 45 minutes. Now add the vegetables and cover the mixture. Simmer for 45 more minutes, or until meat softens. Once cold, the dog is served. The potatoes, in moderate proportions, are very healthy for dogs and help in the resolution of diarrhea. Potatoes also ensure complex carbohydrates.
Food Recipe: 4
1 cup of hamburger meat, fried in a tablespoon of canola oil, ½ cup of cooked oatmeal, 1 or 2 hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped, 2 tablespoons cottage cheese, 1 handful of beans, and 1 handful of carrots.
It is necessary to mix all the ingredients well and serve your dog once it has cooled down. Oats are very rich in nutrition. It is likely that your dog does not like the taste of it. But, if served with hamburger meat, it will taste the food. This will help effectively in solving the upset stomach.
Food Recipe: 5
¼ pound of beef liver, and 1 teaspoon corn oil
You have to cut the liver into pieces and cook it well. You can either fry or boil it. Add the corn oil and distribute once cooled. The liver is a very good source of proteins and other nutrients. Your dog will love this food more than anything else.
Food Recipe: 6
½ pound of veal meat, 1 - 2 tomatoes, 1 cup of water, Parsley, 1 chicken cube, and Whole wheat bread or brown rice (optional).
Chop tomatoes and meat. Make the stew with water, chicken cubes, tomatoes, and parsley. Add the chopped beef to the pot. Cook well. Serve once cooled. The calf meat is soft and easier to digest. However, since rice is the best food when it comes to solving an upset stomach, I prefer to serve the stew with rice, instead of bread.
You can add some ginger to the previous recipes or sprinkle some ginger on your pet's food. Ginger has anti-microbial and pain-relieving properties that will help to cure nausea. If your pet is on anticoagulant medications, please do not give him the ginger in any way, since ginger helps thin the blood.

A dog should eat homemade food at least two or three times a week.

If you feed dry foods to your pet, it would be difficult to digest. Add a cup of hot water or chicken broth to your dry feed ration and let the feed soak. Then your puppies can eat it with total peace of mind. Yogurt is the best option of home remedy for pets with sensitive stomach, vomiting, and for diarrhea. It cools the stomach and stops vomiting and diarrhea immediately. You can also add yogurt to a little chicken if your dog does not eat it.
Eating yogurt will helps to soothe your dog's digestive system, so it is advisable to give it to your dogs on a regular basis. At the same time, it will help strengthen your immune system. It is necessary to provide enough proteins to maintain good health. Excess food causes gastritis, so you have to control the food quantity. If your pet is a puppy, baby food would be the best option.
