Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Low Fat is formulated to assist dogs suffering from gastrointestinal disorders including:
Dietary therapy is crucial for the effective management of gastrointestinal disorders, both in the short and long term. Pets recovering from gastrointestinal disease require a diet that is easily digested and non-irritating to aid their recovery. Reduced levels of fat are important as the process of fat digestion is complex and often interrupted by gastrointestinal disease. Some fat is still necessary in the diet however, to provide sufficient energy for the healing process, as well as increasing palatability for pets with reduced appetites. Ideally the diet should also contain highly digestible proteins and carbohydrates, moderate levels of mixed soluble and insoluble fibre, as well as prebiotics to assist in normal intestinal motility and support the growth of normal bacterial microflora. Supplementation of the diet with omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil may also be beneficial to dogs with gastrointestinal disease, due to their anti inflammatory effects.
Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Low Fat is made from highly digestible proteins and contains rice, prebiotics, beet pulp and fish oil and lower levels of soluble and insoluble fibre to aid digestive health and promote normal function. It also has a very low fat content (1.7%) to improve digestive function in dogs with hyperlipidaemia and acute pancreatitis. Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Low Fat contains a synergistic antioxidant complex to neutralise free radicals and reduce oxidative stress which causes damage to cell membranes.
Not recommended for pregnancy or lactation.
