Choosing the Best Dog Food for a Working Kelpie with a Sensitive Stomach

Choosing the appropriate diet for your Working Kelpie is vital to their well-being, especially when they have a sensitive stomach which may be caused by their current dog food. There is a plethora of reasons that can lead to your Working Kelpie having a sensitive stomach. One of the proven methods in alleviating symptoms for a Working Kelpie with a sensitive stomach is to feed them a high-quality dog food. Historically, the Working Kelpie most likely had a diet made up of whatever it was fed from their owner and it may have eaten small animals as well.

In Australia in about 1870, the Working Kelpie appeared, which was a breed of dog that descends from collies and dingoes, a native Australia breed known for killing sheep. It was quickly classified as a herding dog, meaning that its primary role among humans was herding. It was common for the Working Kelpie to herd cattle, but the dog also herded sheep, goats and poultry. The Working Kelpie has been described as a medium- sized dog with a muscular, athletic appearance. Weighing between 28 and 60 pounds, the Working Kelpie has the strength necessary to be an efficient herder. The Working Kelpie spent a lot of time on farms, so its diet was likely a mix of unhealthy, damaging ingredients that dogs should have avoided consuming. A diet of unhealthy, low quality ingredients could have easily caused a Working Kelpie to suffer from a sensitive stomach.

The Working Kelpie can still be seen herding livestock, but after being exported to various countries, it has taken on other tasks, such as rescue work, tracking and simply being a companion to humans. The Working Kelpie's high energy level will require owners to ensure it engages in activity both indoors and outdoors. Dog owners may have their hands full when it comes to keeping up with the Working Kelpie's need for activity, but when it comes to grooming, this breed is low maintenance. Although the Working Kelpie is susceptible to common medical conditions seen among various breeds of dog, this breed is generally healthy. Although dog owners are definitely more worried about their dog's diet than at any other time in history, buying the ideal food for their dog when they have a sensitive stomach is still tough. Specific ingredients in pet food consisting of some vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fiber can worsen the woes of a sensitive stomach in a dog. Unfortunately, big brand name dog food labels are not legally obligated to disclose specific details about the quality of the ingredients in their dog food, especially the types of meat that they use. If your dog has a sensitive stomach, it's not always simple finding the best dog food for your dog.
