Specific FID Digestive Support contains highly digestible ingredients which compensate for decreased intestinal enzymatic activity and ensure an optimal uptake of nutrients.
This makes the diet optimal for cats 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 egg immunoglobulins. Immunoglobulins can bind specific bacteria, viruses and protozoa in the intestinal tract. This prevents attachment of pathogens to the intestinal wall, damage to villi 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, and also stimulates the local intestinal immunity.
- Intestinal support: Psyllium husk is a gel-forming soluble fibre, which 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.If you are in any doubt, it is recommended you seek the advice of your veterinary surgeon before using this product.
