Commonly recommended for GI upset such as vomiting and diarrhea
It is a great in hospital food for boarding pets. I feed this exclusively to my dog, and I recommend it for many patients that have GI issues. Most dogs eat it readily, I have only had one patient that would not eat it.
we started this product about a month ago. because rockys stomach was growling bad diarrehia occasional vomiting; changed his life
My own dog has been on this for 3 months after battling his upset stomach for years. It has completely changed him! I am so happy with the results and highly recommend this food for pets with chronic GI problems.
Our Miniature Schnauzer who is diabetic loves this food. Now our two new Mini's are eating it as well.
Our vet Kelly sent Quinn home with En when he was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Unknowningly Quinn had been snacking on homemade bread(yeast) a neighbor was throwing into our yard. It nearly killed him. After an IV and 3 days of En he is back to his old self. Thank you Kelly and Purina En!
My Great Dane Remington has been on this food for over a year now it's the only Gastro that doesn't upset her stomach, great price and great food!
My 10 year old golden retriever recently started having problems with her digestion. She stopped eating and had to use the bathroom every five minutes. Our vet suggested switching her to the can and dry food and there is a night and day difference. She has never been so excited to eat and she is back to her old puppy self!
Our Yorkie-mix couldn't tolerate various brands we were trying in our attempts to alleviate his occasional bloody stools. When our vet recommended EN, his tummy problems stopped and he's much happier!
We found out our 3 year old basset hound had some intestinal issues and no matter what food we gave her - she always had diarrhea. We changed her diet to strictly home cooked chicken and rice.
After a while our Vet hooked us up with the EN formula - and what a difference it has made to our life and that of our precious "puppy".
We started giving her a bowl (2 cups) of the dry mix along with 1/3 of the can mixed together. She loves it!
The only thing I wish Purina would do is make smaller serving sizes of the canned. Our puppy loves the canned when it is freshly opened - but we put the rest of the can in the fridge and serve it the next morning. She doesn't like the canned unless it is fresh - yet we have found if we leave the canned out it gets ruined.
My 10 year old whippet and my 10 year old greyhound got sick w/in a week of each other; and there was no apparent reason for it. No dietary "indiscretions", no infections, no parasites. My whippet had pancreatitis and was VERY sick and treated in hospital for 2 days and nights. My Grey had severe diarrhea. When my whippet improved, the vet sent him home with canned EN. I asked about giving it to my Grey since she had GI issues also.
It seems to be doing the trick for both of them. And BONUS!! They LOVE it. And since they are both on pills several times a day, I'm actually able to make mini "meatballs" from the EN and hide the pills in it. I've always had to "pill" them down their throats in the past, b/c there was nothing that they liked enough to just scarf it down, (unless it was food that I didn't want them to have w/ upset stomachs, like KFC or something.)
I'm keeping them on this for the rest of their (hopefully long) lives. I've slowly introduced their normal prescription dry food along w/ the Pruina EN, but instead of cooking chicken and rice to make it palatable, mixing in the canned EN seems to be just fine for them. And easier for me. Win Win.
