Feeding the correct diet is crucial for pets with digestive tract disorders. Fermentable fibres (beet pulp, FOS) keep your cat’s digestive system working well and at the same time they also provide food for the micro flora which helps to keep the gut flora healthy. Mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS) stimulate and help the intestinal immune system (IgA) to neutralise pathogenic bacteria. Indications: Chronic and acute diarrhoea Colitis Dysbakteria Anorexia Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) Gastritis Malabsorption Convalescence Maldigestion Contraindications : Hepatic encephalopathy Hyperlipidaemia Lymphangiectasia Pancreatitis Key benefits : Easy to digest: Highly digestible ingredients compensate for decreased enzymatic activity, ensuring optimal intake of nutrients. Food with a high energy density allows you to reduce the size of your pet’s meal which decreases the intestinal load. Fermentable fibres (FOS) support a balanced gut flora. Well accepted : Cats with digestive tract disorders often suffer from a lack of appetite and weight loss. The exceptional palatability of Royal Canin Veterinary Diet – Gastro Intestinal GI 32 encourages your cat to eat and puts it on the road to recovery. EPA/DHA: Fatty acids to help maintain a healthy digestive system and a healthy skin. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are long-chain omega-3 fatty acids which support a healthy digestion. Changing your pet’s diet and length of treatment: The length of treatment will depend on your pet’s gastro-intestinal symptoms but will take at least 3 weeks. If the symptoms are chronic your cat might need life-long follow up care and diet. Cats which have a tendency to obesity should switch to GASTO INTESTINAL MODERATE CALORIE for long-term feeding. The daily amount should be split into several smaller meals to aid digestive function. Further information: Mannan-Oligo-Saccharides (MOS) stimulate the digestive immune system (IgA). Therapeutic veterinary diets are carefully formulated and recommended to be used in conjunction with veterinary advice and support. Royal Canin strongly recommend you seek advice from your Vet prior to and during feeding of any of these products to your pet.
