The nutritional solution of recurring chronic otitis in dogs
Symptoms linked with adverse reactions to food are very common in cats and dogs and may affect different organs. Like in human beings,symptoms linked with adverse reactions to food may also affect various apparatus of small animals: the gastroenteric, cutaneous, otologic,nervous, urinary and respiratory apparatus.Recurring otitis externa and/or otitis media are observed in more than 80% of dogs with adverse reactions to food. It may actually manifest as a single symptom in more than 20% of cases.This pathology is particularly frustrating for various reasons: little response to drug treatment, continuous recurrences, unsatisfied owners and the clear difficulties that owners have when curing with topical treatment or even systemic drug treatment.Based on these considerations, the FORZA10 R&D center sets its goal to develop a concept of curing through nutrition, creating the FORZA10 Nutraceutical a Line, of products,formulated specifically for each organ. The term “Nutraceutical” is a neologism, which indicates a concept of “food-medicine” or a healthy food that combines nutritional components selected for characteristics of high digestibility and high hypoallergenicity with curative properties of natural active principles extracted from plants with proven effectiveness. Nutraceutical food also resolves the obvious difficulties of owners in treating with drugs whether the administration is topical, oral or parenteral.
