Support of lipid metabolism in case of hyperlipidemia.
Hyperlipidemia is by definition, elevated serum lipid concentration. This elevated blood lipid concentration, unrelated to food intake, is due to the inability to metabolize fats. This includes hypertriglycemia and hypercholesterolemia, and can occur idiopathically or as a consequence of related diseases such as pancreatitis, gastrointestinal problems, obesity, diabetes….
Dogs are capable of ingesting large amounts of fat in their diet, so if elevated triglycerides or cholesterol are detected it is not necessarily due to dietary intake, there is a genetic predisposition as in the case of miniature Schnauzer, but its nutritional management is simple, with a low fat intake in their diet, and the inclusion of dietary fibers great improvements are achieved. The use of Omega-3 fatty acids, mainly from fish, is a good ally in the control of triglycerides. And although there is still not enough evidence in dogs, in humans it has been shown that the use of strains such as Lactobacillus plantarum is effective in cases of hyperlipidemia. What has been demonstrated is the benefit of its contribution in the improvement of the microbiota against the typical affectation of pharmacological treatment.
Reduction of excess weight.
Overweight and obesity are some of the most widespread chronic diseases in the veterinary practice, between 25 and 45% present some of these diseases. These are triggers for other secondary diseases. The decrease in quality of life and life expectancy requires a high degree of awareness because, fortunately, the nutritional management of this disease is simple, although it requires attention and discipline on the part of the patient for an effective performance. The accumulation of fat in adipose tissue is due to an imbalance in the consumption of energy and protein, that is, overfeeding, with predisposition in your case, is marked by breed, age, castration or physical activity, with a big factor against as is the sedentary life and idleness, boredom, stress that can generate and lead to an exacerbated consumption of food and therefore, excess weight.
As for breeds, there is a propensity to be overweight in breeds such as Beagle or Labrador, being mongrel breeds the least prone to develop these diseases. Endocrine pathologies such as hypothyroidism, diabetes… are especially relevant.
It is necessary to take into account the age, contrary to popular belief, obesity is not a typical disease in advanced ages per se, it is the conjunction of an inadequate diet together with the sedentary lifestyle that we induce in our dogs. These animals are the ones that end up forcing, mostly, the appearance of overweight or obesity. Finally, it happens that obesity in early stages of development is especially dangerous because it induces the presence of adipocytes throughout the life of the animal, so we will find an animal with a tendency to obesity and overweight throughout his life.
Castration or gonadectomy triggers a decrease in metabolic requirements at the same time that the disappearance of estrogens or androgens can increase food intake, hence the need to adjust the diet after castration.
The management of this disease is especially important since it is a trigger for many other secondary diseases such as predisposition to diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, as well as negatively influencing joint, respiratory, cardiac pathologies…
Regarding the nutritional management of these diseases, the goal is low metabolisable energy until the target body weight is achieved, and therefore optimised recipes with a higher level of nutrients to compensate for the lower energy intake are required for this purpose.
