SANIMED Multi-Effective is available in packs of 3 kg and 12.5 kg.
Through chopping proteins into smaller peptide fragments the aim of SANIMED Multi-Effective is to decrease their antigenicity; this principle
extends to dogs with food hypersensitivity. Dogs with hypersensitivity towards soy protein often develop pruritis upon ingesting the intact
protein but are less likely to with hydrolysed soy protein.
Skin and food hypersensitivity often go hand in hand and have similar clinical signs however skin reactions caused by inhaled allergens will not
react to hypoallergenic protein sources. The aim of Multi-Effective is to promote the reduction of reactions in the skin. The role of Eicosanoids
formed from di-homo-gamma linolenic acid and from eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) regulates the reduction in these skin and food reactions.
Recent studies have shown that dietary fish oil can help reduce the progression of joint support in dogs. This provides an important role in
maintaining optimal joint function.Through the use of a hypoallergenic diet based on a hydrolysed protein source dogs with acute
intestinal disorders (such as colitis) have shown an improvement in clinical signs. Ingestion of fish oil may be expected to further support the
clinical condition through its inclusion/activity.
Dietary fish oil has been shown to lower the plasma concentrations of TNF and IL-1. The amount of fish oil required was equivalent to 1.3% in a dry food. The use of Taurine and L-Carnitine are essential elements for both monocyte function and enhanced heart contractility.
The combined characteristics of SANIMED Multi-Effective makes this dietetic food instrumental in the support of various canine conditions.
Food hypersensitivity and skin sensitivity often co-exist in dogs and it is difficult to distinguish definitively between the two conditions. Using
SANIMED Multi-Effective it is possible to support both conditions together.
The nutrition plan below is an indication of the amount of food to be given. Nutrition plans are based on averages. For this reason always pay close attention to condition your dog and adapt the amount of food accordingly.
