Purina Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Feline Formula
Dietary management in feline gastrointestinal conditions is to provide a proper balance of total nutrients while meeting the special dietary needs of the patient. Dietary fats from long chain triglycerides (LCT) can be one of the most complex nutrients to digest, and fermentation of undigested fats can contribute to diarrhea. Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) provide a readily digested and utilized energy source. Some cats with diarrhea are sensitive to dietary carbohydrates. Feeding a properly formulated, a high quality diet that is high in protein and low in carbohydrates provides optimal nutrition for these cats with compromised gastrointestinal tracts. With added Vitamin B vitamins, easily absorbed chelated minerals, and moderate fat content, EN provides the nutrients needed to help support cats with GI tract problems.
