Choosing the Best Dog Food for a Lhasa Apso with a Sensitive Stomach

Diet can play a key role in Lhasa Apsos suffering from sensitive stomach. Sensitive stomach in a dog can stem from a number of different factors. One of the first steps in alleviating symptoms for a dog with sensitive stomach is to find a high-quality dog food. Historically, food for a Lhasa Apso with sensitive stomach was not a priority for owners.

Lhasa Apsos originated in the Himalayan Plateau region of Tibet with domestication starting as early as 800 BC. The earliest task of the Lhasa Apso was to serve as a guard dog for Buddhist monasteries in the sacred city of Lhasa. Mastiffs protected the outside of the monastery, while Lhasa Apsos guarded the inside of the house. The Lhasa Apso's sharp bark and excellent sense of hearing made them fantastic guard dogs. Their thick skin and fur made them adept at surviving the harsh weather conditions of the Himalayas. Early Lhasa Apsos most likely survived on a diet of table scraps. It's unlikely that the food scraps consumed by early Lhasa Apsos were conducive to relieving symptoms of a sensitive stomach.

The role of the Lhasa Apsos has changed from guard dog to family pet. The Lhasa Apso is a long-living breed with some dogs living into their 20's. Many celebrities have kept a Lhasa Apso as a pet including Gwen Stefani, Jane Lynch and Bethenny Frankel. Lhasa Apsos have also been featured in many television shows including The L-Word, The Simpsons and Spider-man and His Amazing Friends. Even though much more is known about dietary needs for Lhasa Apsos with sensitive stomach, it is still difficult to find a quality dog food to meet those needs. Certain ingredients in dog food including some vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fiber can exacerbate the symptoms of sensitive stomach in a Lhasa Apso. Fats and some proteins may be difficult for Lhasa Apsos with sensitive stomach to digest. Unfortunately, commercial dog food brands are not required to disclose information about the quality or grade of ingredients on their labels.
