Black Hawk Healthy Benefits Sensitive Skin & Gut offers a balanced diet and has been specifically developed by our animal nutritionists and vets to aid nutrient absorption, support bowel function, and assist with skin and coat health in adult dogs. Highly digestible, it is fortified with probiotics and prebiotics for optimal gut flora. It also contains fish oil, a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids for healthy skin, shiny coat, and joint support. A complete and balanced formula, specially designed to help normalise gut function and passage of food, stool quality, and nutrient absorption. It is a great option for dogs who tend to scavenge, eat indiscriminately, or suffer from diarrhoea. With a unique blend of grain-free carbohydrates and fibres, your furry friend will enjoy optimal support for their sensitive gut. Highly digestible protein sources, chelated minerals, and supportive vitamins also provide the perfect combination for breeds with high skin and coat needs, recovering from adverse skin reactions, or living in harsh environments. Did you know that your dog's skin and gut have a lot in common? They both have important jobs in maintaining your dog’s overall health. Both the skin and gut act as a physical barrier between the internal environment of the body and the external world, preventing harmful microorganisms and other foreign substances to enter. Our Healthy Benefits Sensitive Skin & Gut diet has special ingredients that help your dog's gut work better and support your dog's skin and coat, so they can look and feel their best. We add prebiotics and probiotics to our Healthy Benefits Sensitive Skin & Gut to help maintain the balance of healthy bacteria in the gut. Prebiotics are special fibres that the good bacteria in your dog’s gut can use to make short-chain fatty acids. These short-chain fatty acids are really important as they are a major source of food for the cells of the large intestine. Probiotics are live bacterial supplements that can also keep your dog’s gut healthy by supporting the gut barrier function and promoting a healthy digestive system. A happy and healthy community of microbes helps to inhibit the growth of bad bacteria and minimise smelly gas. Our Healthy Benefits Sensitive Skin & Gut dog food contains a special ingredient called algae beta-glucans. These are sugar molecules from certain types of aquatic algae that are easily absorbed by your dog's body. They help strengthen your dog's gut by promoting the growth of good bacteria and supporting the first line of defence in their gut. This ingredient has also been shown to help maintain healthy faecal scores. Another key ingredient is hydrolysed chicken which is chicken protein that has been broken down into smaller parts (also called peptides). This makes it easier for your dog to digest and absorb the amino acids it contains, which are important for building new skin and gut cells.
