Medical Conditions

 

Feeding low-grade food can give long term health problems, just like us humans if we had fast food every day, our nutrition would suffer and we would see health problems developing, our furry friends are no different.

 

Your dog may have certain medical conditions, and thus, certain food types are not suitable. We must highlight this section below.

 

We always recommend speaking to your vet when your dog has a serious medical condition, so you have the right advice for your dog's needs.

 

It is always sad to see your dog go through a period of ill health, but you can support your dog with the best nutrition possible.

 

One thing for sure is feeding a quality natural food is vital for good health, Ooddles foods are all-natural, grain-free, hypoallergenic, made using the finest fresh meats, no preservatives, cooked slow and low giving the best nutrition.

We have shared some top tips below from our nutritional experts on our Dry Food, Wet Food, Raw Food on some common medical issues.

 

Diabetes

 

Vets recommend a high-fibre, low-fat diet. Fibre slows the entrance of glucose into the bloodstream and helps your dog feel full.  Low-fat foods have fewer calories. 
We recommend you switch to Bare Ooddles Natural Raw Dog Food; our Raw food is super for dogs with diabetes as it is low GI.


For Dry Food, we have a dry food called Go Lower; it is lower in calories.


Wet Food is suitable to add to kibble.


Treats and Chews available at our shop, natural with no nasties.

 

Heart Disease

 

Omega 3 fatty acids are recommended for heart disease for several reasons. Firstly, they reduce inflammatory proteins called cytokines, but a diet supplemented with omega 3 fatty acids has also been shown to improve appetite and reduce muscle loss in dogs with heart failure.

Always take advice from your vet

 

Tips:-

Our fish granola food topper is a perfect food topper to help with this condition and packed full of natural omega 3 oils. 

 

Pancreatitis

 

You will be under vet care for this condition, and managing the fat content in your dogs is really important.  We recommend Bare Ooddles (Raw)

Tips:-

All our raw meals are suitable for Pancreatitis as long as the fat content is not too high for the dog individually. Raw meals allow for a dog's digestive system to function optimally putting less pressure on the Pancreas to provide excess digestive enzymes. This is due to a mixture of; the moisture content, the beneficial microbiome profile, the bone content encouraging stomach acid production and the higher nutritional enzyme content. This balances cellular enzyme production in all organs, especially the Pancreas. 

 

Chronic Kidney Disease

 

You will be under vet care for this condition, and feeding the right food is really important.
In all but the severest of cases of CKD.  Kidney function improves on raw feeding mostly due to the high moisture content and essential fatty acids but for other reasons too, such as no cereals compromising your dog’s body.

 

Tips:-

We recommend you speak to your vet regarding your dog's diet, and if they recommend Natural Raw Feeding as an option, then please select our Raw feeding.

 

Epilepsy

 

You will be under vet care for this condition, and feeding the right food is really important.
We recommend you speak to your vet regarding your dog's diet and if they recommend Natural Raw Feeding as an option, then please select our Raw feeding at the next step.

Tips:-

Cancer

 

Dogs with cancer go through complex biologic changes that require a delicate nutritional balance. While there are some basic guidelines you can follow, such as grain-free and quality nutrition, dog parents should partner with their veterinarian or other canine health care specialist to determine the best dog food for cancer patients.
