Diet dry food for dogs with digestive disorders
Diarrhea and vomiting are among the most common health disorders that can occur in dogs.
The causes of diarrhea and vomiting are very diverse. The causes for this are mostly nutritional errors (too much, too cold, too fast change of feed), disturbances of the bacterial intestinal flora (overgrowth with pathogenic germs), parasites, fungi, bacteria and viruses – but also fundamental diseases of the organs such as the esophagus, the stomach, of the intestines and pancreas. If a dog has diarrhea and vomiting over a long period of time, it loses more and more of its body’s water and important minerals (electrolytes) – this can lead to dehydration and the development of deficiencies. In addition, a long-lasting gastrointestinal disease in dogs can lead to severe emaciation.
How GASTRO INTESTINAL dry food supports your dog with digestive disorders
MERAVITAL GASTRO INTESTINAL is a high premium dry diet developed by veterinarians and nutritionists, which focuses on relieving the diseased digestive system and building up damaged areas. Thanks to the high-quality composition of poultry and rice, you can feed MERAVITAL GASTRO INTESTINAL in small portions that are easy to digest. This means that your dog’s stomach and intestines are not burdened for an unnecessarily long time. The electrolyte losses caused by diarrhea or vomiting are quickly compensated for, so that there is no serious deficiency. MERAVITAL GASTRO INTESTINAL also contains natural active ingredients such as mannan oligosaccharides, butyrate, chicory inulin and omega-3 fatty acids. These ensure that the disturbed intestinal flora of your dog is rebuilt and inflammatory processes are inhibited. The immune system in the intestine is activated and strengthened so that your four-legged friend will feel better again quickly.
Veterinary advice in the case of indigestion
Diarrhea and vomiting can also be symptoms of other serious underlying diseases such as poisoning, kidney failure, pancreatitis or food allergies.
Therefore, please have your sick dog thoroughly examined by the vet in order to be able to treat him as quickly as possible. Meravital Gastro Intestinal should only be fed on the recommendation of a veterinarian and under appropriate medical supervision.
Our tips for using GASTRO INTESTINAL dry food:
You can also offer MERAVITAL GASTRO INTESTINAL dry food moistened or combine it with MERAVITAL GASTRO INTESTINAL wet food (half of the recommended amount each).
Please never put boiling water on the food as this will destroy heat-sensitive ingredients.
Boiled water must not be hotter than 50 ° Celsius when it comes into contact with high-quality food. Please let the feed cool down to 35 ° Celsius before you feed it.
Since your dog loses a lot of fluid with diarrhea or prolonged vomiting, please make sure that your dog always has enough drinking water available.
To relieve the digestion and promote healing, it is advisable to divide the daily feeding amount into several small rations.
Please always offer your dog fresh food, as stale food can irritate the stomach and intestines.
General tips for dogs with indigestion:
It is best to always take a fresh sample of the vomit or stool with you to the vet – this gives him the opportunity to investigate promptly for triggering causes.
Deworm the dog regularly.
Feed the best possible quality and easily digestible food.
Do not change the feed too quickly or too often.
Do not feed raw meat (risk of infection by parasites) or ice-cold wet food.
Keep the dog from eating feces or carrion.
Do not let your dog drink from stagnant water such as puddles.
Clean bowls and beds regularly and, above all, thoroughly.
Attention risk of infection! Avoid contact with dogs that are currently suffering from diarrhea.
Always keep dog food in the manufacturer’s feed bag. When the feed is transferred to a feed bin, the high-quality fats are deposited on the edge of the bin. If this is not hot and washed out with washing-up liquid after each complete emptying, the sensitive fats will become rancid due to constant contact with oxygen and the newly filled feed will spoil more quickly. This, too, can be a reason why your dog experiences diarrhea or vomiting on a regular basis. We therefore advise you to close the sack tightly after each opening, to store it in a dark and cool place and to put it in a feed bin to protect it against external influences.
Do not reach into the food with your bare hand. Only remove the food with a clean shovel or a clean measuring cup, as otherwise you can transfer pathogenic germs to the food, which can additionally damage a dog that is sensitive to gastrointestinal tract.
