Choosing the Best Dog Food for a Saluki with a Sensitive Stomach

It's rather important for any Saluki to have the right dog food for their size, age and activity level, especially so if they have a sensitive stomach. Lots of considerations must be evaluated when trying to determine the cause of a sensitive stomach with a Saluki.

Images of the Saluki date back as far as 4000 BC in cave carvings in what is now northern Iraq. The Saluki held a revered position as guardian of Kings and Sheiks as well as nobility and rulers throughout greater Persia. In general dogs were not considered clean enough to enter tents in the desert but exceptions were made for the Saluki. Sometimes referred to as a Persian Greyhound, the Saluki hunts with both sight and scent. Nomadic tribes used the Saluki for hunting fox, hare and jackal given its incredible speed and endurance over long distances. Historically the Saluki survived on a diet of hunting spoils and small vermin. This diet may not have been nutritionally adequate for those Saluki suffering from sensitive stomach issues.
