Greyhounds can have sensitive stomachs. Ours has an extremely sensitive stomach and we eventually had to put him on a packet of Fortiflora (probiotic from the vet) each morning with his breakfast and actually give him home cooked food (a mushy goulash of rice,ground beef, with some variation of the veg ie/ potatoe, carrot, spinach, celery ). We also throw a calcium tablet and a fish oil in from time to time as well. We hadn't anticipated home cooking FOR A DOG - but during our first year we experienced increasingly serious digestive problems on 5 different high end dry foods. we gave this a try out of desperation and it took him from a constant mushy - and often slimy and bloody - stool to a completely normal firm one in a single day and he has not had a mushy stool since. That was 5 months ago. This dog had been to the vet for so many issues related to his digestion and once we made the big switch he became a different animal. More engaged, chipper, happier and simply healthy.
