Pancreatic Enzymes contains the 3 enzymes your pet needs for effective digestion – amylase, lipase and protease.
Sometimes, dogs don’t produce the necessary amount of digestive enzymes needed to properly absorb their food. This is called pancreatic insufficiency. High Strength Pancreatic Enzyme Powder will help to break down the food into small enough particles. This means it can be absorbed through the intestine, giving your best friend the nutrition that they need.
High Strength Pancreatic Enzyme Powder
…is really easy to use. As a guide, just add 0.5 – 1 gram of Pancreatic Enzyme Powder to every 100g of food. The amount of food that you feed your pet should be based on their ideal weight, and not the weight that they are currently at. It is also important not to give more food than is needed, even though this is very tempting when they are underweight.
How much to use
Start with the lowest recommended amount of Pancreatic Enzymes and see how it works. It is quite easy to tell when the quantity is right from checking your dog’s stools. If you see that they are starting to get firm you are heading in the right direction. From here, increase slowly until everything is looking really healthy. It can be useful to keep a diary of how much food your dog has had, how much enzyme was used and what the result was. I bet you never expected to be keeping a poo diary!! You should also notice a change in their personality with them not being so ravenous or eating so quickly. More importantly, you should notice that they are steadily gaining weight.
The High Strength Pancreatic Enzyme Powder needs to be added to every meal that your dog eats. We find that when they are regularly using Pancreatic Enzymes they are able to manage eating treats without adding enzymes.
There is no need to soak the Pancreatic Enzymes before use or incubate on the food. It can simply be sprinkled directly on to the food. If you are using dry food, you can add a small amount of water to prevent any enzyme powder being left behind in the bowl.
