Description

Specific (Dechra) Digestive Support is a food that has been specifically developed for dogs with acute or chronic gastrointestinal problems. This includes acute or chronic gastrointestinal disease with associated diarrhoea, vomiting and/or flatulence, Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, malabsorption, maldigestion or Colitis. The recipe has been specially formulated to be very gentle on the stomach and to support the digestive system and immune system. It contains highly digestible ingredients to aid metabolism and helps your dog gain the maximum intake of nutrients possible. An increased level of electrolytes will help compensate for the losses incurred during vomiting or diarrhoea. Added egg powder contain egg immunoglobulins which aid the digestive tract. The products also contain Psyllium Husk which will help to regulate gastrointestinal tract acitivity and will also protect intestinal mucosa. Additionally, Yucca extract is a well known ingredient that helps to reduce the smell of faeces and gasses.

Benefits

  • Highly digestibility - Highly digestible ingredients compensate for decreased intestinal enzymatic activity and ensure an optimal uptake of nutrients. This makes the diet optimal for patients with gastrointestinal conditions such as acute and chronic diarrhoea, vomiting and/or flatulence
  • Vitamin & mineral support - The high content of minerals and fat soluble vitamins compensates for compromised absorption in the patient’s gastrointestinal system. The increased level of electrolytes compensates for increased losses during diarrhoea and vomiting
  • Immune support - Contains ß-1,3/1,6-glucans from yeast, which can bind to receptors of white blood cells, thereby alerting the immune system and supporting the immune response. The diet contains egg powder rich in immunoglobulins. Immunoglobulins can bind specific bacteria, viruses and protozoa in the intestinal tract. This prevents attachment of pathogens to the intestinal wall, damage to villli and associated diarrhoea. Furthermore, the diet contains mannan-oligo-saccharides (MOS). MOS can bind pathogenic bacteria, thereby preventing them from binding to the intestinal wall. MOS also stimulates the local immunity in the intestinal tract
  • Intestinal support - Psyllium Husk is a gel-forming soluble fibre, which absorbs several times its weight in liquid, and is known for its beneficial effect on the regulation of the gastrointestinal tract activity and protection of the intestinal mucosa
  • Odour control - Yucca extract reduces the production of malodorous gasses and the smell of faeces

55 Fabulous!
Verified Purchase

Specific does what it says. Poor Hercules was suffering severe gastrointestinal issues diarrhoea, vomiting and the vet didn't solve the issue using Royal Canin. We had used the wet food on an old Jack Russell before so bought this for Hercules and improvement within 48 hours. He is now heading back towards his normal food and he is 14 years old with sensitivities. We were sad we hadn't bought it him sooner as he suffered longer than he needed to. Highly recommend Specific

45 Useful for elderly dog

My fifteen-year-old dog gets stomach upsets and I hoped this food would help, though the main problem is that he picks up infections more easily now.
For him it works best as a tasty supplement served with other food, as he loves the taste and a 100g tray mixed in certainly improves the appeal of an otherwise bland diet.
Feeding solely on this food didn't work for him but it might be worth another try.

We dispensed with the dry food when her vet swapped it, but she loves the deep wet food , so have retained 3 for convalescence period.
