Eukanuba Veterinary Diets Weight/Diabetic Control for Dogs

  • Dry » 12kg Bag £53.68

Description

The Weight/Diabetic Contol Veteinary Diet from Eukanuba is formulated to nutritionally manage glucose metabolism and weight issues. In addition, this formula helps address other indications that may benefit from the nutritional content, plus provide nutrients to support overall health and well-being. A special carbohydrate and fibre blend helps optimise glucose and insulin response after a meal and the reduced fat level aids in achieving and maintaining a healthy body condition, plus L-Carnitine facilitates the oxidation of fat. This diet is also recommended for senior dogs, as they often have glucose metabolism and weight control issues.

Recommended For: Management of Diabetes Mellitus. It is recommended that a veterinarian's opinion be sought before and during the use of this product in order to determine the needs of your dog.

Indications

  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Persistent Hyperglycemia
  • Obese-prone/Overweight dogs
  • Senior (overweight, impaired glucose metabolism)

May also be prescribed to nutritionally manage Pancreatitis.

Benefits

  • Special carbohydrate blend (barley, sorghum) - helps optimise postprandial blood glucose and insulin response
  • Special fermentable fibre blend (FOS 1%, beet pulp 4%, gum arabic 1.2%) - stimulates the release of glucagon-like polypeptides-1 (GLP-1), a potent anti-hyperglycemic hormone and optimises insulin and glucose response
  • Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC 0.92%) - a viscosity modifier that helps delay glucose absorption
  • L-Carnitine - facilitates the oxidation of fat
  • Reduced fat* and appropriate levels of animal-based protein - helps manage weight and maintain muscle mass to achieve a healthy body composition (fat vs. lean muscle)
  • High quality animal-based protein - helps maintain muscle mass
  • Targeted omega-6:omega-3 fatty acid ratio - helps nutritionally manage inflammation at the cellular level
  • Vitamin E - an antioxidant to help maintain a strong immune system
  • Beet pulp - a moderately fermentable fibre that produces butyrate, a short chain fatty acid (SCFA), which is a preferential energy source for the enterocytes and promotes intestinal health
  • FOS (fructooligosaccharies) - prebiotics which aid in GI health and have been shown in a clinical study to help maintain the balance between beneficial and potentially pathogenic bacteria
  • DentalCare System - to help reduce tartar build-up across the whole mouth during and beyond mealtime
