Today we will talk about a recent supplement that we have just brought from our brand Diggin' Your Dog aimed at digestive solutions and with very good results for years in the USA: Gi Balance.

This gastrointestinal regulator is focused on dogs and cats, with among its ingredients ginger, fennel seeds and agave inulin, as well as pumpkin and apple pectin. Let's remember that it is also 100% natural, without coloring, preservatives or additives.

Among its applications we find improvements in episodes of diarrhea and/or constipation, gas, dizziness, vomiting, reflux, heartburn and car sickness.

So what would be the difference main among Sign Up! Pumpkin and Gi Balance? The answer lies at the root of the problem we want to solve, hence the slight variation in its ingredients. We explain it in a more technical way below.

He digestive system of our pets is quite complex, but in order to better understand the answer to the previous question, we will differentiate the “zones” and “processes” that occur in them. In the zone superior we will find, Roughly speaking , the mouth, esophagus and stomach. The digestive process begins with the intake of food when an animal chews. Then, many components and other processes come into play to finally end up in the stomach, where stomach acids and enzymes are produced that chemically break down food.

On the other hand, in the area lower We will find the small and large intestine. The small intestine produces digestive juice, which mixes with bile and pancreatic juice to complete the chemical breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Bacteria in the small intestine produce some of the enzymes necessary to digest certain foods and, in turn, absorb most of the nutrients in the food. In the large intestine, the remaining nutrients are chemically broken down, converting waste into feces.

In general, we should know that the intestines of a carnivorous animal like a dog are very short compared to an omnivorous animal like us. This has a purpose, to have a very rapid intestinal transit to avoid food fermentation (very common in both species) and thus have efficient digestion.

After what has been said, we can say that Sign Up! Pumpkin It is a 100% natural gastrointestinal regulator indicated to improve the intestinal and digestive health of dogs and cats. As we indicated, it is efficient for our pet's digestive health, but it would be more focused on that lower part mentioned above, known as the intestinal area. This is due to its ingredients (dried pumpkin and apple pectin), which have a large concentrated amount of soluble and non-soluble dietary fiber, a nutrient that helps the final process of digestion and the correct elimination of waste. Therefore, we recommend using FiRM UP! Pumpkin for diarrhea, constipation, natural emptying of anal glands and diet transition.

On the other hand, Gi Balance would cover more needs at the gastrointestinal level, since thanks to its other ingredients in addition to pumpkin and apple pectin (ginger, fennel seeds and agave inulin), we can focus the results in both areas, that is, in the complete digestive process. An example among its ingredients is ginger, as it stimulates the secretion of gastric juices and regulates intestinal transit, preventing dizziness, nausea and vomiting. It is also anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, helping pets that take a lot of medication and preventing the appearance of gastritis. Fennel seeds, for their part, help reduce stomach motility, relieve stomach pain and reduce gas and acidity. Therefore, we recommend GI Balance for cases of gas, dizziness, vomiting, reflux, heartburn and car sickness.

Furthermore, it is true that both supplements are rich in nutrients that promote digestion and excellent food supplements, in addition to being a great source of prebiotics that help the intestinal health of our pets naturally.

In conclusion, we could say that they are very similar supplements but at the same time, very different. Its use will depend on our pet and its particular needs. It is always important to individualize cases and, if you have doubts, the ideal would be to ask us directly and go to a professional.
