What is SPECIFIC Canine Special Care Endocrine Support dry food?

 

SPECIFIC Endocrine Support is a complete and balanced dry food for adult dogs with high levels of Omega-3 fish oils and increased fibre levels to help manage blood glucose levels and helps provide maximum support for general health.

 

The carbohydrates used are from sources with a low glycaemic index, such as oats and whole wheat. The high levels of Omega-3 fish oils and Omega-6 from borage oil aids in blood pressure management and helps to increase insulin sensitivity.

Steps to ideal bodyweight

 

Weight check:  Get your dog's body condition checked and weighed.

 

Planning:  Work with your vet to decide what is the target weight. Choose a suitable food for your dog's needs, and then calculate the daily feeding amount.

 

Implement the feeding:  It’s important that you measure out the food so, if you need to you can easily and accurately adjust it.

 

Regularly weigh your dog:  A simple way to do this is weigh yourself, then weigh yourself while holding your dog then subtract the two numbers. If you have a larger breed or are unable to carry the dog, it is advised to get your dog to sit on some bathroom scales, or pop into your vets to use the scales in the waiting room!

 

Be patient – It’s not going to happen overnight but if you stick with it your dog will reach their target weight, and it will all be worth it with a happier healthy dog.

 

Maintain weight:  Once you have reached target weight you need to make sure they stay there by choosing a suitable food for your dog's needs.

 

Remember: If your dog is on a diet, be careful not to spoil the good work with treats (especially table scraps), and make sure everyone knows what you are doing!
