Rice Water Recipe to Control Diarrhea

Rice Water Recipe to Control Diarrhea

I know that the benefits of using "rice water" to control diarrhea have been discussed and applauded here before, but I couldn't seem to find a recipe on our forum.

So after scouring the web for the second time to find a rice water recipe, I've found one, and here it is: (Normal rice preparation in parenthesis)

3 cups water (instead of 2)
1 cup regular enriched white rice

Bring water to boil.
Add rice and simmer for 15 minutes (instead of 20).
Pour off the water into an appropriate container.

Discard the rice solids, or use as filler in your favorite non-medical recipe. ;)
The consistency reminds me of sticky-rice at Chinese restaurants.

The key seems to be the ratio of 3 to 1, water to rice. We use a large 8-quart dutch oven, 9 cups of water and 3 cups of rice. When we pour off the water, we have about 3 1/2 cups of rice water.

We feed 1/2 cup for our 88 pound pooch.

If anyone else has another recipe or dosage, chime in!

Would the BRAT diet work for dogs, as well? That's what our pediatrician recommends for my boys when they're having tummy problems. It's Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, & Toast. Thankfully, we haven't ever had to deal with diarehha with either of our pets YET.
I have always just used boiled instant rice and ground beef, all cooked. About 2/3 rice and 1/3 beef.
Of course there is always the quick fix, immodium, though some dogs are sensitive to that medication.
When Nab was sick (my sister fed her candied ginger which killed all the good bacteria in her stomach) the vet had us feed her Pasta or rice and cooked extra lean ground beef. After we cooked the beef we had to rinse it under water to remove as much of the fat as possible. We had to keep her on that until the diarrhea cleared up completely. It was not easy getting her back on her dog food after a week of special cooked meals! :lol:
