Features & Benefits

Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Fiber Balance Dry Dog Food

Medical Indications
Diets with these nutritional modifications have been recommended for dogs with some forms of the following conditions:
Diabetes mellitus
Constipation
Fiber responsive colitis
Large bowel diarrhea

Clinical Considerations
The role of dietary management in canine diabetes mellitus and colitis is to provide a proper balance of total nutrients while meeting the special dietary needs of the patient. Complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber help to delay the absorption of glucose from the intestinal tract and minimize postprandial fluctuation of glucose in dogs with diabetes mellitus. Soluble fiber in the diet may also prolong gastrointestinal transit time, allow greater water absorption, and promote the production of short chain fatty acids which nourish the intestinal mucosa.

I had a diabetic dog who for some reason became unregulated after many years of receiving the same dose of insulin. She lost an extreme amount of weight because of this, for the first time in her life I wanted to put weight on her. We ended up switching to Purina's DCO, because it had twice as many calories per cup as the other diabetic dog food we were feeding. This diet change helped her gain the weight back, along with getting her diabetes regulated again of course. She's a lab so she's not at all picky about flavor, loves all food without exception! Very happy with the results.
