Improving your Dog’s Gut Health via Pet Food Ingredients
Hypoallergenic diets are a great option for dogs with more sensitive digestion, as they can be used to help eliminate common allergens from the diet. The Dog Man’s Choice Grain Free range is hypoallergenic as the recipes have been formulated without grains (such as wheat, maize & barley), soya and dairy. We also have a large number of single protein recipes available to help eliminate specific proteins from the diet when necessary.
Prebiotics are classed as non-digestible ingredients that probiotics (the good bacteria in the gut) can feed off. These help to increase the populations of healthy bacteria in the gut to help support good digestion. This is why The Dog Man’s Choice Grain Free recipes are formulated with Prebiotics MOS (Mannanoligosaccharides) and FOS (Fructooligopsaccharides). One of the biggest advantages of prebiotics is that they are highly stable as they are unaffected by either temperature or long-term storage, so they are very beneficial as an ingredient in dry pet foods.
It’s thought that consumption of fibre can help to reduce symptoms in some dogs with gastrointestinal upset and support good gut health. The Dog Man’s Choice Grain Free recipes are formulated with beet pulp which is a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre. Insoluble fibre helps to encourage good stool formation and promote normal gastrointestinal movement so that an optimal level of nutrients can be absorbed from the food. The soluble fibre also acts as a prebiotic food source for the ‘good’ bacteria in the gut to maintain normal digestive function.
4) Freshly Prepared Ingredients
The Dog Man’s Choice manufacture has developed Freshtrusion™ technology which allows them to include Freshly Prepared meats in The Dog Man’s Choice recipes. These meats are of a high quality, are easily digestible and gentle on the gastrointestinal tract making them beneficial ingredients for those dogs with more sensitive digestion. High digestibility of these ingredients is also advantageous as it means that a high proportion of nutrients are available for absorption by the dog.
