Description

Specific CRD-2 has a low fat content and high fibre content which results in a low energy density. It is ideal for dogs who have successfully completed weight reduction and dogs which are less active or neutered. The increased soluble and insoluble fibre content supports gastrointestinal motility and a healthy gastrointestinal tract. The low fat content also makes it a suitable diet for the management of hyperlipidaemia and cholestasis. Because it is generally given in limited quantities, the level of minerals and fat soluble vitamins has been slightly increased.

Benefits

  • Moderate energy, high fibre - The low content of fat and high content of fibre result in a low energy density. Even during a period of weight reduction and/or weight control this will enable the owner to feed a considerable amount of food, supporting that the dog’s appetite is sated
  • Optimal weight - L-carnitine transports fatty acids into the mitochondria and stimulates oxidation of fat and preservation of muscles
  • Joint support - Omega-3 fatty acids help to maintain normal mobility in joints of overweight dogs. Omega-3 fatty acids also support a healthy skin and coat
  • Moderately increased protein - The moderately increased protein content supports maintenance of muscles
  • Diabetes mellitus - The content of complex carbohydrates and the high level of fibre promote a gradual release of glucose from the diet, which makes it suitable for patients with diabetes mellitus
