Gastralieve For Dogs
Digestive Support Formula

Gastralieve supports optimal gastric health without suppressing stomach acid or impairing the natural digestive process. Contains Zinc-Carnosine, a proprietary chelated compound that beneficially adheres to the gastric mucosa, providing an additional barrier of protection against damage. Stimulates mucosal defense mechanisms and promotes localized tissue repair of irritated stomach lining. An effective adjunct for dogs on NSAID therapy that can be safely given with other supplements or medications. Protects gastric mucosal cells from damage due to bacterial toxins, dietary indiscretions and NSAID (pain medications) use.

•  Chelated Zinc-Carnosine with Vitamin E
•  Helps protect stomach lining from NSAID damage
•  Speeds repair of damaged gastric epithelium

When the digestive process is upset, clinical signs of gastric distress occur.

•  Vomiting
•  Diarrhea
•  Loss of appetite
•  Lethargy
•  Depression

The Canine Digestive System
Gastric distress is a common complaint received from dog owners. The canine digestive process can take up to ten hours as food is slowly converted into nutrients and absorbed. After food is chew and swallowed, proteolytic enzymes and hydrochloric acid from gastric glands break down proteins. In healthy dogs, secretions from mucus cells protect the gastric epithelium from damage and ensure a healthy digestive process.

The normal digestive process in dogs can be disrupted by a number of common factors. Aggressive factors include:

•  Medications like NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs): Deramaxx, EtoGesic (Etodolac), Metacam, Novox, Previcox, Rimadyl (Carprofen), Vetprofen, Zubrin. While necessary for the continued quality of life in dogs with arthritis, they can have the unintended consequence of of damaging the stomach lining.
•  Allergens
•  Diet
•  Bacterial infections and toxins
•  Parasites
•  Stress
•  Seemingly unrelated problems with internal organs like the liver or kidneys

Gastric Distress
Difficulties with the normal digestive process can quickly lead to gastric distress in dogs. Mucosal secretions decrease, limiting protection of the gastric lining from caustic acid and enzymes. Inflammation can lead to irritation and erosion of the stomach wall. If left unchecked, ulceration and other life-threatening consequences can result.

The Science and Synergy of Gastralieve Cheleated Zinc-Carnosine
Zinc-Carnosine in Gastralieve combines elemental zinc and the di=peptide L-carnosine in a chelated, stable compound with synergistic benefits. Gastralieve chelate has been shown to be nearly 3 times more effective in healing gastric damage than zinc or carnosine alone, or non-chelated zinc plus carnosine.

•  Zinc has well-known wound healing properties and promotes healthy immune function to facilitate repair of damaged gastric epithelium.
•  L-carnosine provides antioxidant activity to protect gastric epithelial cells from free radical damage.
•  Chelated Zinc-Carnosine is structurally stable and not readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract for prolonged gastric activity.
•  Zinc-Carnosine is safe for long-term use in dogs

Not only does this product work well, but the customer service provided through Pets Truly was amazing. An error due to the POST OFFICE delayed the arrival of a package and they had such wonderful customer service to track and find the package. Great service! Thank you!

My 4 year old Alaskan Klee Kai was having stomach issues since we brought her home. A few good days and another cycle of no interest in food, bloody diarrhea & vomiting. We tried several brands - dry & wet food - we even cooked for a year. Finally, with Gastralieve and the right combination of food & treats - Royal Canin Vet Prescribed Wet Food, Purina Fortiflora and Orijen Freeze Dried Treats - she`s been doing relatively well. She still has her off days but her stool is quite good and there is less rumbling in her stomach.

Our 5-year old lab developed a sensitive stomach following a procedure at the vet. The vet recommended using Gastralieve and it seems to help. We use it once daily unless she does throw up, then we give 1 tablet and wait 6 hours before trying food again. The product from PetsTruly is the lowest cost we`ve found.

My 5-year-old had the same issue as a previous reviewer. At least once a week she had stomach noises and she refused to eat, vomited, was lethargic. We switched to gluten free pet food but she still had issues, though they were less severe. My vet recommended Gastralieve. She still gets occasional stomach noises but they are less frequent, don`t last as long, and she is still able to eat without vomiting. She is finally at a normal weight for the first time in her life.

My 14 year old Husky/Lab mix has food allergies. It is a miracle I found Gastralieve. We can not live without it. Without Gastralieve, it`s a vicious cycle of stomach girggling, not eating for days, throwing up and just an overall feeling of being sick. the girggling sounds, not eating and throwing have disappeared!

Our little mini dachshund was experiencing vomitting and severe diarrhea. Once a month this started and greadually tu ed into every 2 weeks. We took him to our vet and gastralieve was prescribed. It worked like a charm. Our little boy started gaining weight and has not been sick one day since on this medicine. He has been off the meds for about 3 months and still has not had a problem. I highly recommend this to dogs with this sort of issue.
