Description

Convincing your dog to eat when he’s experiencing gastrointestinal upset is far from easy; but when the prescribed food tastes great and is easily digestible, there’s a good chance he’ll bark for more. GI upset is one of the most common reasons dogs are brought to a veterinarian, and can result from many factors including restricted eating, parasites, and infectious agents. Common symptoms are loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea, impairing a dog’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients. Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Naturals Dry Dog Food contains high quality ingredients, is low in fiber, and has added vitamins and minerals to nutritionally manage GI upset in dogs.

Key Benefits
  • Great-tasting dry dog food for digestive health.
  • Features coconut oil as a source of medium-chain triglycerides.
  • Suited for dogs that have gastritis and enteritis, inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, and other diseases of the intestinal tract.
  • Developed using high-quality ingredients without any corn, wheat, artificial colors or flavors.
  • Specifically formulated with the protein levels that your dog needs, as well as prebiotics and low fiber to support intestinal health and natural ingredients that you recognize and trust.

On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

    Changing foods

    By Snitz on Oct 24, 2020

    My 11 year old Toy rat terrier was having stomach issues and his vet put him on purina pro plan EN. I had just ordered 2 cases of a high end wet food two weeks before. Chewy asked me to donate it and credited my account. What a wonderful company!!!

    This food for my senior guy is one of two that were recommended to me by our vets, and I have learned from more than 10 years with them as our veterinary provider to trust their diagnoses and recommendations. SJ has had a sensitive digestive system for several years, and I had had some success in keeping his digestive system healthy, but then the decision was made to get him on a good prescription food after a second flareup of pancreatitis and this one was the winner for us. SJ can be a picky eater, so I was concerned that he wouldn't eat this food, but he has taken to it like a duck to water. As I always do, I examined the claims and reviews for this food and have been very pleased.

He will even eat this food dry (though I usually add a little white-meat boiled chicken or x-lean steamed ground beef to his dinner portion). If you think that this food may be an answer for your dog(s), check out the ingredients and have a discussion with your vet about it. There is a regular EN version, as well as the Naturals, which I chose because SJ has never done well with corn. … more

    Amazing stuff!

    By KendallsHuman on Mar 6, 2020

    Our 1 year old goldendoodle has had digestive issues since we got her. She's had to do multiple rounds of antibiotics and most recently was at the vets overnight for monitoring due to excessive vomiting and diarrhea. The vet suggested trying this food (previously we had been using a raw, frozen variety) and this has been amazing so far (three weeks in). Our dog has noticeable more energy and this is way more convenient to give her than frozen food.
