Royal Canin Gastro-Intestinal Moderate Calorie is a high energy-density, reduced fat kibble for dogs in cases of acute or chronic diarrhoea, pancreatic insufficiency, inflammatory bowel disease, maldigestion and malabsorption, colitis or convalescence. Combining digestible proteins, fish oils, pulps and prebiotics to promote complete digestive health and the function of internal systems. The diet is formulated to cater to the needs of growing dogs with an energy-packed kibble that allows you to distribute a smaller amount of food at mealtimes, thereby reducing the digestive workload.

Low fat or moderate....

Graham Robinson

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Moray, United Kingdom

Hi there, my Siberian husky has severe pancreatitis after being diagnosed after blood test. We have him on your Castro intestinal LOW FAT at the moment but wondered if we could put him on the moderate as we WORK him during the winter months. We could use the low fat during the summer and moderate during the winter if it would give him that extra energy for running without affecting his fat intake. We also give him PANZYM with your food to supplement his pancreatic enzymes.

It should be safe enough to do as you say, but I would suggest you introduce the new food gradually. Pancreatitis is an unpredictable condition and the trigger factors for attacks are not well understood. It may or may not occur again whatever you do, but obesity and a high fat diet do seem to be associated with it. If your dog is too lean then certainly I would increase the fat content slightly. If your dog can maintain a good weight on the low fat diet, then I would stay with that.
