Description

The gastrointestinal tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and colon. Therefore, gastrointestinal disease is defined as any abnormality involving one or more of these structures. By feeding your pet a diet that contains precise amounts of key nutrients, you can not only help minimize vomiting, diarrhea,or constipation, you can also help to support and improve the function of the gastrointestinal structures. This gastrointestinal diet is formulated to help maintain the balance of gastrointestinal microflora and intestinal mucosal integrity.

  • Just the ticket for my sensitive GSD

    By on

    After YEARS of issues with lots of other dog foods--including very expensive limited ingredient diets, grain-free diets, dehydrated organic food, and other so-called easy-to-digest food--we finally found a food that seems to agree with our German shepherd, who has a very sensitive stomach. It is so nice NOT to hear her stomach making weird noises all the time, and she finally has nice, firm stools. She also has more energy and just seems healthier overall after finishing one 30-lb bag. We're definitely ordering another bag! I do add a spoonful of browned ground turkey on top or a splash of low-sodium/fat-free beef broth to make it tastier, but she's very picky and always requires a "topper" on After YEARS of issues with lots of other dog foods--including very expensive limited ingredient diets, grain-free diets, dehydrated organic food, and other so-called easy-to-digest food--we finally found a food that seems to agree with our German shepherd, who has a very sensitive stomach.

  • Seemed to like the food

    By on

    Unfortunately, my pup was put to rest right after I purchased this item. However, she did enjoy one or two meals with it and she seemed to like it. She had Lymphoma and unfortunately really went downhill fast. : ( Thank you so much for the lovely holiday card you sent to my home in the mail. Daphne was going to be 11 years old next week - she's a Golden Retriever and a beautiful soul!!!!

  • Smart Switch

    My husband and I had our dog on a high protein diet for about a year and noticed that her stomach was constantly upset from both ends. It would happen just constantly enough that we needed to consult our vet who then recommended this formaula to us. She’s been on it now for over a year and (knock on wood) we haven’t had any more upset stomach issues. She has an occasional throw up but what dog doesn’t? We aren’t taking her off this food unless something else changes.

  • 2 lbs and 14 years old.

    By on

    We inherited a 14byearmold yorkie riddled with arthritis and pancreatitis. She is a game little one that is still full of life. No pain and she can still run up a flight of stairs. This is the only dog food that she can eat. Low in fat and palatable for her tiny body. Expensive but does miracles for her. Recommended for any dog that has trouble keeping food down.

  • Great Experience!

    By on

    My 7 year old beagle it was recently diagnosed with pancreatitis and put on this prescription dog food. Chewie.com made this entire experience very easy. They confirmed the prescription with the veterinarian and ship the product out within a day of my order. Not only did I experience amazing customer service but the great news is my dog loves this food. I was a little worried since it is extremely low fat that he wouldn’t find it appetizing but he looks forward to meal time every day and goobles it right down.

  • So far so good

    By on

    Our boy was on the verge of liver failure so we bought a small bag from our very... Thank goodness he likes it. Chewy had immediate vet approval & fast delivery. Love the free shipping. This good is also almost $20 less expensive than buying it from our vet (AWESOME vets though)!!

  • My vet rates this a 5 of 5*****; my pet rates it a 1 of 5*

    By on

    Two vets recommended this food for my dog Charlie as my dog is a little overweight and occasionally has an upset stomach. I bought the largest bag (which is large enough for a couple of months) instead of the small bag to save a few dollars but my dog doesn't like it at all. He's on a hunger strike. I prefer that he would eat this food as it came so highly recommended by the vets and I don't want to throw away $60. *** Because of the disparity between the vets' opinions and Charlie's taste buds I didn't know how many **** to give. I went with Charlie's rating because I sleep with him.

The food I ord. was prescription so it had to go thru my vet., Chewy took care of that part. Placed the ord. Sat. am, rec. it the Following Tues. .It was waiting for me when I got home & that was nice. The Best part, my kid wolfs it down like it was T-bone.

  • Amazing customer service

    By on

    First I give 5 stars for the dog food because it works awesome for my rescue dog with a sensitive stomach! Most important part of this review is for the people who work for chewy. I would give 100 stars if I could, that is how much I appreciate them! I only ordered 1x so far and today I get home to find a package at my house. I dont remember ordering anything, I open the package and there are 4 hand made canvas pictures of my beloved fur babies! Totally made my day and this is how customer service should be! Thank you!
