Diet tips to combat digestive issues

Burns Pet Nutrition knows that a poor diet can wreak havoc on a dog’s digestive system, which is why they created an entire range of sensitive digestion dog food. A recent review of the Burns Nutrition helpline showed that 20% of all enquiries were concerning digestive problems in dogs, so the expert team have come up with some top tips for treating digestive problems in dogs, allowing you to help your pet live a happy and healthy life:

  • See a vet to rule out any serious causes of digestive issues before turning to dietary management
  • Do a straightforward, low-fat elimination diet that you can easily monitor
  • Try to avoid beef, wheat and dairy, as well as treats, dental chews and table scraps (vegetables are okay)
  • Choose hypoallergenic food that is free from artificial colourings, sugars and preservatives
  • Be careful not to overfeed your dog
  • Look for ingredients your dog hasn’t eaten before (their body won’t have built up an immune system against these new ingredients yet)
  • Remember that every dog is different (e.g. one may not suit chicken but do well on duck)

Foods suitable for sensitive dogs

Burns Pet Nutrition provide an excellent array of healthy, natural food suitable for pets with allergies and intolerances to many food groups. Their ‘Sensitive’ range offers the perfect solution for feeding dogs with digestion issues and intolerances, as it is made with sensitive dogs in mind and avoids ingredients that commonly case allergic reactions. The Sensitive Pork and Potato recipe is a particularly popular choice, but other great recipes from the range include: Burns Free From Duck & Potato  Burns Free From Turkey & Potato, Burns Sensitive Duck & Brown Rice, and Burns Sensitive Chicken & Wholegrain Maize.
