Dogs have a very sensitive digestive system, which can be put under strain in a number of different ways. Gastro-intestinal complaints are common in dogs and can manifest themselves as chronic and acute diarrhoea, and vomiting. This can make long-term use of dietetic dog food unavoidable. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Dog – Gastro Intestinal Low Fat is a complete dry kibble with a recipe that has been designed to help dogs that have a tendency to be overweight, or that need a lower-fat diet. The lower fat content can help to improve the digestion of dogs that suffer from hyperlipidaemia or acute pancreatitis. The recipe contains easily digested proteins that minimize intestinal fermentation processes, and a lower fibre content means that nutrients can be more evenly absorbed and makes the food very digestible. Fermentable fibres (dried beet pulp and FOS) promote balanced digestion and contribute to healthy gut flora. There is also a patented antioxidant complex, which can help to prevent attacks from aggressive metabolites and strengthen the immune system.
