A dog’s digestive system can be very sensitive, and can come under strain in a variety of different ways. Your dog may have developed symptoms of a new gastro-intestinal complaint, or many dogs can suffer from chronic diarrhoea and vomiting. This can make long-term use of dietetic dog food unavoidable. Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal has a high energy density, which can allow you to feed your dog multiple small meals, to ease strain on its digestion. The high quality proteins are easy to digest, to minimize intestinal fermentation processes, added FOS fermentable fibres promote balanced digestion and contribute to healthy gut flora. Mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) can stimulate the local immune system in the gut (IgA) and help to neutralize harmful bacteria. Recommended for (indications):
Chronic and acute diarrhoea
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI)
Digestive problems/ maldigestion
Not recommended for (contraindications):
Complaints requiring a lower fat diet
Digestive security: proteins that are easily digested help to reduce intestinal fermentation processes. Fermentable fibres (FOS) support a balanced gut flora
High energy content: high energy density ingredients allow you to feed your dog in small portions to ease stress on the digestion
EPA/DHA: Eicosapentaenoic acid -(EPA)and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)are long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids, which can help to reduce inflammation in the intestine
Antioxidant protection: the patented antioxidant combination (vitamin E, vitamin C, lutein and taurine) can help to protect the body’s cells from attack from aggressive metabolites and strengthen the immune system.
