For hundreds of years, Newfoundlands have proved to be excellent companions for their humans. Seen in popular culture such as J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, the Newfoundland strikes a courageous and loving figure. They are well-known as water rescue dogs, which is fitting for their love of water. Their webbed feet and muscular build have come in handy for many a shipwreck rescue and in assisting fishermen across the ages. Their steadfast, loyal, and courageous demeanor can make it easy to forget that not every part of a Newfoundland is infallible. A sensitive stomach can seem at odds with their personality, but it can occur. A frequent sign of love for a Newfoundland can include the giving of treats and snacks including human food. Sneaking food under the table for an adorable dog has been a timeless tradition. However, if your dog has a tendency toward a sensitive stomach, investigating how much food your dog is getting outside of their regular diet is something to consider. After all, human food of the wrong kind could include fat or oils that are inadequate for dogs. According to the American Kennel Club, some common symptoms of sensitive stomachs can include loose stool, flatulence, and occasional vomiting. First things first, be sure to have your dog checked out by a veterinarian to ensure that the sensitive stomach is not a sign of something more serious. But once you’ve determined your Newfoundland just has a sensitive stomach, be sure to investigate the food you’re feeding him or her. As with humans, diet is one of the main contributors to a sensitive stomach. Some common issues causing sensitive stomachs for Newfoundlands can include too few sources of fiber or essential minerals. They may also be sensitive to a specific type of protein. Eating foods outside of their typical food can also contribute to sensitive stomach issues—and if they are overeating this can also cause weight gain. As Newfoundlands are prone to hip dysplasia, this is something to avoid at all costs for their health and well-being.
