Default How common are stomach issues in poodles?

I have heard Many poodle people (here and on other boards i frequent) say how their poodles have either IBD/IBS or extreamly sensitive stomachs. Most of them are standards. I wonder how bad it is in the breed. This seems like alot of dogs that are affected.

Is this something that breeders should be more aware of and try to breed away from it? Is it one of those "under the rador" problems that people experience but dont try to fix in the poodle world? I hope i dont end up with a senstive poodle as i know how much of a pain it is. It just seems so common.

Standards in generally (from what ive seen and heard) do have pretty sensitive stomachs....not like a garbage gut Lab ya know. Mister can eat something different than usual and have runny poop for days. My best friend in this fight is canned pumpkin. Its a miracle worker and will stop his runny poop within a day!

Our girls are less bothered by what they DO eat than by if they DON'T eat... If either of our spoos have an empty stomach they'll vomit bile. We try to make sure they eat several smaller meals per day rather than one large one... If they nibble throughout the day, they're much better off.

I agree with Plumcrazy - if I DON'T feed on schedule, twice a day, then I'll get the vomiting bile episodes. They also get snacks in the day and one in the middle of the night when my husband comes to bed. I just think that it's better to have a little something in their stomach's at all times.

One of my two spoos has a touchy belly, Suri. As for the entire group, I agree if they have not eaten well, they can get upset and throw up the yellow bile. With Suri - we are trying to determine if it is a food issue or a stress issue - which becomes a food issue and on both instances comes the diarrhea.

We are going back to NO grain with Suri. And trying out Taste of Wild.

From what I am reading, breeders would know best, that it is somewhat difficult or even impossible to breed out IBS, or IBD because anything could bring this on. Stress is one issues and food allergies. I would think temperament would play a key in some of that - so I wonder maybe that could be place to start?. Addisons is another disease that has symtoms of IBS.

No stomach sensitivity here, yy spoos will pretty much eat anything. They are ok with kibble, as long as it's mixed with home cooked, raw and different types of meat, kibble etc.

Ivy doesn't seem to have too many issues so far, but then again I am used to my lab's severe digestive issues. He has IBD, allergies, and sensitivities, and I have to rotate his food about every 3 weeks between a few brands that he isn't allergic to (TOTW Pacific Stream, NB LID Venison, Hills d/d Venison and Potato, and RAW) or else he will quickly lose weight and have projectile diarrhea. As long as I rotate between the 3 kibbles and give him a few raw meals a week, then he does decent.
He can't tolerate any grains, poultry, dairy, anything to rich, etc.

well my apricot is like a garbage can she eats anything.
And she never has a upset tummy.

Charly did sometimes have tummy trouble but not anymore.

And Vaka well I dont know about her.

I think that if a dog gets just dry food he has a more sensitive stomach.
So I give my dogs all kind of foods, just nothing bad for them.

This is just something I found out with my old dogs my cavalier ate everything never had any problems our lab ate just dry food if he got something else he got mayor problems and the pups of the cavalier I had also get upset tummy, they just eat dry food.

Filp is an empty stomach puker too, actually.
If I sleep in and feed him later he may throw up.
However, he hasn't done that since we switched to the PMR diet.

Variety wise, he adjusts to new foods fast.
