It can be hard to find the right food for dogs with food allergies or intolerances so at tails.com we take your dog's digestion into account when formulating their ideal blend. Our blends that cater for sensitive stomachs contain beneficial fibre sources as well as prebiotics to aid digestion and help support overall gastrointestinal health.
How your dog's blend helps with sensitive digestion
We use the following high quality ingredients and prebiotics when creating blends for dogs with sensitive stomachs to help support healthy digestion:
A source of fibre to increase the feeling of fullness, and aid slow, healthy digestion. It also helps promote better digestion by nourishing the natural bacteria in the gut, allowing nutrients to be easily absorbed.
A natural form of fibre that comes from inactivated yeast, MOS helps boost your dog’s body’s response to harmful bacteria in the intestine, improving gastrointestinal health and aiding digestion.
A natural form of fibre that promotes the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria, allowing greater absorption of essential nutrients. FOS also boosts gut immune defences and reduces the production of excess gas and flatulence, as well as reducing stool odour.
Vitamins A, C and E have antioxidant benefits which can boost immune defences in the gut and help dogs with sensitive digestion.
Signs & causes of a sensitive stomach
There are a huge variety of reasons why your dog may have digestive upsets from time to time, including something they've eaten or a sudden diet change, health conditions such as bacterial or viral infections, inflammatory bowel disease or even kidney issues. Certain breeds are also more prone to sensitive stomachs, including German shepherds, boxers, cocker spaniels and Yorkshire terriers.
If your dog has regular digestive upsets, you should first consult your vet to find out if there is an underlying medical reason. If this has been ruled out then diet could be considered a factor.
If there is a specific food allergy or intolerance that is causing upset we also provide hypoallergenic blends which are individually tailored but exclude certain ingredients.
