After a year of vague digestive symptoms that went from mild to severe and many rounds of tests Cody, my 11 year-old Shepherd/Collie mix was diagnosed with IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease). IBD happens when the lining of a dog’s small or large intestine becomes overloaded with inflammatory cells. Dogs with the disease have loose watery stools, chronic weight-loss and malabsorption of nutrients.
Cody is on a wide array of very strong medications and he was prescribed a restricted diet that I am cooking for him. One of the ingredients I am supposed to add to his diet is essential fatty acids so I was very excited when Marvelous Products asked Cody to review Benecoat.
Our container of Benecoat came in easy to administer cheese flavor soft chew treats. Cody loves them. He eats his three chewable treats before I serve his dinner.
Benecoat fatty acids are made from krill oil and fish oil and are veterinarian recommended. These fish oils help promote a healthy coat and skin and the part I appreciate is; the product supports a healthy immune system.
Essential fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat that is vital for a dog’s overall health. They aid in controlling inflammation in the system.
Benecoat is manufactured by Nutra Paws Pet Nutrition. The product is based on scientific results. You can read the science behind the product in this – PDF.
