The Benefits of Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach & Skin

Dogs that have issues with their
stomach or skin/coat can experience discomfort that, as pet owners, we
naturally empathize with. We all want the best for our pets and, until
recently, there were not many pet food options that were designed specifically
for dogs with gastrointestinal issues.

Freshpet is out to change that. We have been working on a specialty recipe that would help adult dogs with gastrointestinal issues. Our team is happy to introduce Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach & Skin, a pet food that is specially formulated for dogs with sensitive stomachs, skin, and coats. In this article, we discuss the difference between this product and other foods in Freshpet’s repertoire as well as how exactly Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach & Skin can help provide our more sensitive furry friends’ continued health.

How is Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach & Skin Different from Other Freshpet Products?

As is the case with all Freshpet
products, there’s a keen focus in the ingredients and quality. Freshpet Select
Sensitive Stomach & Skin is different from other Freshpet products because
it was specially formulated for dogs that have sensitive stomachs. The recipe contains
steam cooked chicken, brown rice, and pumpkin – all of which are very easy on
your dog’s stomach. The recipe for Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach & Skin
is also rich in Vitamin A and Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which promote your
dog’s immune function, cell function, as well as healthy skin and coat. The
healthiness of the meal isn’t the only thing that’s enhanced. Freshpet worked
hard to ensure that the flavor provides a treat for your pup during every meal.

The natural prebiotics from the chicken, pumpkin, brown rice, sweet potatoes, carrots and chicory root extract all work to ensure that dogs with sensitive stomachs receive the nutrients that they require to stay happy and healthy.

What Are the Benefits of Chicory Root and Other Prebiotics?

Chicory root extract in Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach
& Skin is a high quality, soluble and functional fiber source that helps
with nutrient absorption into your pet’s bloodstream. This is especially the
case in foods that contain high amounts of meat and fish.

Chicory root extract is a natural prebiotic that contains
inulin, which can assist beneficial bacteria in your dog’s gastrointestinal
track. While probiotics are often talked about in relation to you and your
pet’s health, prebiotics serve a similarly important function by essentially
feeding and acting as nutrition for the “good bacteria” in your pet’s stomach
that break them down.

Can I Use This Product When My Dog Is Not Actively Having
Stomach or Skin Issues?

You can absolutely give Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach
& Skin to your dog if they are not actively having issues with their
stomach, skin or coat. Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach & Skin is formulated
for both health and pure preventative benefits as well as for dogs experiencing
digestion and/or skin and coat issues. This means that it can be served to your
dog as a complete and balanced meal on its own.

The recipe was developed for adult dogs specifically,
however, which means that they do not have any of the EPA and DHA that are
added to puppy recipes to assist with their development. For this reason,
Freshpet asks that you only feed Freshpet Select Sensitive Stomach & Skin to
adult dogs and recommends feeding our puppy formula to dogs that are under the
age of one year old.
