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.

    IT'S WORKING!

    By on

    Loki, my 3-1/2 yr old Staffy, had developed an irritable bowel; maybe colitis. He was often scooting after two or three squats, but didn't have diarrhea, and his anal glands were normal So after trying many feeding strategies like adding pumpkin and rice to his lamb/rice (wholesome essentials) kibble his doctor decided to put him on this prescription kibble diet. The 22 lb bag comes out to just under four bucks a pound including tax -- the only reason it didn't get 5 stars, -- because Loki just loves it (I'm sure he read the invoice), and I'm trying to develop a taste for it myself, since it's just as expensive as anything else that I eat! His stools are now completely normal after Loki, my 3-1/2 yr old Staffy, had developed an irritable bowel; maybe colitis.

His stools are now completely normal after just a week, and no scooting. BUT, we'll have to see if there is something less expensive long term, because this is an outrageous price for dog kibble, and I can't find anything very exotic or expensive in the ingredients list! … more

    Finally!! GI issues solved

    By on

    Our 10 y/o German Shepherd started having GI issues several months ago. Allergy tests. Blood work, ultrasound showed PED and possible IBD. Started meds but still not enough relief for our boy. Started this food along with the canned formula and bone broth and VOILA!! Perfect poops! Thank you to Chewy for always asking how Cooper is doing and getting his food to us ASAP!!

    Good for GI issues

    By on

    Recommended by our veterinarian and our dog loves it! She has had GI issues such as gas and gurgling stomach but now that she only eats this food, canned, dry kibble & treats too, she doesn’t have any more issues! We put her dry kibble inside a monster mouth, which we also got from Chewy, and she can’t wait to roll the monster mouth around to get her ‘treats’!

    Has done wonders

    By on

    My Golden was born with a sensitive stomach most likely from tape worms. This food has been wonderful, allowing him to grow into a healthy, happy adolescent.

    Happy Dog, Happy Life

    By on

    My dog was prescribed this food after he was diagnosed with a damaged pancreas from being a stray. I was worried he may not like this as it is considered a bland diet, but that is certainly not an issue. He loves it and is acting/feeling much better!

    Problems solved!

    By on

    My 1 year olf french bulldog was suffering from what my Vet said was the doggie version of IBS. He was on Royal Canin French Bulldog, and loved it, but he began having unexplained bouts of severe diarrhea and gas. This food fixed everything! He likes it. He has more energy, no gas, no bowel issues.

    Food works well

    By on

    My 15 month old Labrador Retriever just transitioned from the Gastro Puppy Food to this. He likes it and is doing well. Seems to be doing what it claims to do. If your dog has a sensitive digestive system, this is good food for it.

    Just what my dogs needed

    By on

    My dogs have stomach problems due to a parasite. They were in to the low fat & not satisfied & refused to eat it, but the moderate fat they are eating with no problem. They are even begging to eat at mealtime again.
