Royal canin sensitivity is the recommended diet for managing pets with food sensitivities, intolerances and digestive tract disorders. when feeding sensitivity control always avoid feeding any other treats or snacks. It is also important that your pet does not scavenge food outside. Royal Canin Sensitivity Control diets are formulated to minimise the number of potential sources of sensitivity or intolerance. They are lactose-free and wheat gluten-free. It is a highly digestible diet, using the minimum number of protein and carbohydrate sources so is suitable for use in adult dogs and cats, puppies and kittens. The diet is enriched with antioxidants (vitamin E, vitamin C, taurine and lutein) to help maintain health and vitality.
Changing your petís diet should generally be carried out over several days. On day 1, begin by adding a small amount of the new diet to your petís existing food. As each day passes, add more of the new diet to less of the original food, until eventually you are only feeding the new diet. This change should take around 5 days. However as Sensitivity Control is a bland, highly digestible diet, this transition phase can be reduced or eliminated, particularly in the case of food allergy, intolerance or acute diarrhoea.
Royal Canin Sensitivity Control diets contain restricted protein and carbohydrate sources. Protein sources: blue whiting, chicken, duck. Carbohydrate sources: tapioca, rice. These are seldom associates with food sensitivity in the dog and cat. Food allergens (the food fragments responsible for an allergic reaction to the food) are proteins within the food that are not broken down by the heat of the cooking, by stomach acids or by the enzymes that digest food. As a result they survive to cross the gastrointestinal lining, enter the bloodstream and may cause allergic reactions throughout the body. Lactose is a milk protein and lactose intolerance is a common food intolerance which occurs in both dogs and cats, it usually results in diarrhoea. Levels of lactase, the enzyme needed to digest lactose, fall after weaning. If milk is fed to adult dogs and cats, undigested lactose remaining within the small intestine can cause digestive disorders. Royal Canin Sensitivity Control diets do not contain lactose, so avoiding this problem.
