Critical Canine

Designed for canines in critical condition

Semi-elemental formula

  • Allowing the body to quickly digest and absorb nutrients, with the least energy expenditure.

  • More efficient nutrient absorption by enterocytes, preventing further enterocyte atrophy.

  • Minimizes risk of diarrhea due to its balanced purified amino acids and hydrolyzed protein that maintains osmotic balance.

Indications

  • Critical illness

  • Post-operative period in debilitated patients

  • Malabsorption and maldigestion

  • Poor weight gain

  • Cachexia

  • Anorexia, inappetence

  • Acute renal disease

  • Infectious disease

  • Peritonitis

  • Autoimmune disease

  • Anemia

  • Convalescence

  • Geriatric

Recovering

Canine

Designed to support canines recovering from critical illness, suffering from chronic medical conditions, or are underweight.

  • Contains more complex nutrients than EmerAid Intensive Care, helping transition the debilitated canine from intensive care nutrition to normal feeding.

  • Scientifically formulated to rebuild lean body tissue, support the immune system, and meet the needs of the metabolically stressed patient. 

Indications

  • Convalescence

  • Malnutrition, cachexia

  • Anorexia or poor appetite

  • Nutritional support during pre- or post-operative periods

  • Failure to thrive or gain weight

  • Acute kidney disease

  • Neglect

  • Severe parasitic infestations

  • Infectious disease

  • Autoimmune disease

  • Anemia

  • Peritonitis

  • Malabsorption and maldigestion

Common Features and Benefits

  • One month shelf life after opening

  • Goes through tubes as small as 5 Fr without clogging

  • Excellent for bolus tube feeding or syringe feeding (not recommended for CRI pumps)

  • Species-specific nutritional formulation

  • Essential and conditionally essential amino acids to meet the needs of the metabolically stressed patient

  • High quality and easily digestible protein helps with lean body mass and wound healing 

  • Omega-3 fatty acids to aid in tissue synthesis

  • Enriched in branched chain amino acids to benefit muscle synthesis and repair

  • Higher fiber plus highly digestible soy protein means the incidence of diarrhea is lower than with other critical care formulas

  • Purified fiber sources to maintain intestinal motility and commensal microflora

  • Hydrolyzed soy protein minimizes gastrointestinal hypersensitivity

  • Highly digestible macronutrients prevent and manage osmotic diarrhea

  • Glutamine and arginine support immunity and antioxidant systems

  • Enterocyte health maintained and supported allowing for the maximum absorbable nutrition in the gastrointestinal tract

  • Synergistic antioxidants vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc and taurine to defend against oxidative stress

  • Casein supports digestion of fats and tissue synthesis while providing anxiolytic properties

  • Dietary nucleotides provide RNA and DNA precursors to support the immune system, nourish the gastrointestinal tract, and assist in weight gain

  • Hydrolyzed starch supplies glucose, disaccharides, and oligosaccharides, which avoids the osmotic problems associated with feeding only glucose. Vital for the acute carbohydrate needs associated with debilitation

  • L-tryptophan, a precursor for the synthesis of serotonin, to reduce stress

  • Balanced electrolytes

  • Cellulose serves as a source of insoluble fiber and acts as a prebiotic

  • Stabilized vitamins and chelated minerals

  • Free of artificial colors and preservatives

  • Naturally preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid

  • Meets AAFCO nutritional requirements for adult maintenance
