BRNO, CZECH REPUBLIC — Calibra™, a premium pet food brand by animal health technology company Covetrus®, launched its new line of veterinary dog treats in the European Union and Latin America on Nov. 27. Calibra Veterinary Diet Snacks offers a comprehensive range of treats that address common health issues in dogs.

According to Calibra, the treats are specifically designed to be compatible with its veterinary diets.

The Calibra Veterinary Diet Snacks line includes six formulas:

  • Weight Management is made for dogs diagnosed with diabetes or obesity and boasts a low calorie count and high level of fiber;
  • Gastrointestinal Support is made for dogs suffering from indigestion, bloating and other digestive issues, and contains highly digestible ingredients to support normal intestinal function and detoxification;
  • Vitality Support is made for dogs experiencing kidney, cardiovascular or liver disease, and contains special protein sources and a specific balance of minerals and protein;
  • Mobility Support is made for dogs with musculoskeletal and joint issues, and contains MSM, Omega 3s, glucosamine, chondroitin and Boswellia serrata;

  • Urinary Care is made for dogs with urinary tract issues and contains a balanced level of minerals, L-methionine and other ingredients to support urinary health.

The Weight Management, Gastrointestinal Support and Vitality Support treats come in a crunchy format, and the Mobility Support, Hypoallergenic and Urinary Care treats come in a semi-moist format. 

To develop the new veterinary treats, Calibra spent more than a year in research and development.

“We are thrilled to launch our Veterinary Diets Snacks, our first line of products specifically designed for dogs on a veterinary diet who also have a variety of medical conditions,” said Martin Čech, R&D and export manager at Calibra. “Feeding common snacks to dogs can undermine or even spoil the effects of veterinary diets. With Calibra Veterinary Snacks that is no longer an issue because our products were created entirely in accordance with veterinary diets. Pet parents can now reward their dogs on a diet with no worries.”
