Dietary therapy is crucial for the effective management of gastrointestinal disorders, both in the short and long term. Pets recovering from gastrointestinal disease require a diet that is easily digested and non-irritating to aid their recovery. Moderate levels of fat are important as the process of fat digestion is complex and often interrupted by gastrointestinal disease. Some fat is still necessary in the diet however, to provide sufficient energy for the healing process, as well as increasing palatability for pets with reduced appetites. Ideally the diet should also contain moderate levels of mixed soluble and insoluble fibre to assist in normal intestinal motility and support the growth of normal bacterial microflora.
Vomiting and diarrhoea can cause the loss of electrolytes like Sodium, Potassium and Chloride as well as B vitamins from gastric secretions. These nutrients are essential for many processes in the body, and depletion can result the development of complications and a slower recovery. To counter this, diets for pets suffering from gastrointestinal conditions should be rich in electrolytes and B vitamins.
