Is it ok to give oatmeal to a dog with a stomach problem

Of course you want to check with your vet about food choices, but in my experience oatmeal is a nice comfort food for sick dogs and cats. It also makes a nice transition food for weaning puppies and kittens.
I cook it according to the label but then thin it with beef or chicken broth and/or milk. A special treat is mixing it with a bit of cooked fish or baby food meat and thinning it with water or milk.

What sort of stomach problem are you talking about? What are you currently feeding your dog?
