The nutrition behind digestive care

These formulas are crafted to be gentle on your dog’s gut, as well as supporting their overall health. Larger dogs are more prone to soft stools, while smaller dogs are more likely to have harder stools. Our formulas account for this with an ideal balance of fibers crafted to suit your dog’s size and digestion.

The formulas also contain highly digestible proteins and a blend of prebiotics to promote a balanced intestinal flora and help promote optimal stool quality. Our formulas help ensure the nutrients are available for easy digestion.

Digestive care tips

Along with Digestive Care nutrition, a few hints and tips to help keep your dog’s gut healthy and promote optimal stool quality.

Stick to dog food

If your dog feels like part of the family, it can be tempting to give them human food. Resist the temptation to do this while also reducing fatty snacks, as both can add stress to your dog’s digestive system and lead to uncomfortable digestion.

Smaller portions

Feeding your dog too much at once can overload their digestive system. It may be best to divide your dog’s daily ration into two servings to give them a chance to digest it properly. And always follow the amounts recommended on the bag, can, pouch, or ask your veterinarian about feeding amounts.

Feeding routine

Dogs tend to thrive on routine. If you choose an optimal formula and follow a regular daily feeding schedule, your dog’s body will become used to this.
