NO NEED TO GIVE ADDITIONAL DIGESTIVE ENZYMES OR PROBIOTICS WHEN USING THIS FORMULA
A high-potency formula designed especially for dogs (and cats), Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics aids digestion through the use of plant enzymes and probiotics. Because some animals struggle with digesting kibbles, homemade and canned diets, this enzyme formula helps with ensuring the quick and efficient absorption of meals.
This formula utilizes 13 specialized enzyme strains with five billion CFU per gram of 13 different species of beneficial bacteria. It is specially designed to aid in situations involving nutritional deficiencies and problems like autoimmune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease and even arthritis. Many of these conditions can be the result of poor digestion.
This Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics formula contains the highest amount of proteases when compared to similar products on the market. A protease is an enzyme that enacts the process of proteolysis, which is the breakdown of proteins into smaller pieces like amino acids. This serves to aid digestion by breaking down food.
Proteases are important because many of the diseases and conditions that can plague your dog come from the inefficient breakdown of proteins. Proteins that are not fully digested can create inflammatory conditions in your dog’s system.
The Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics formula includes a host of plant-based enzymes. These enzymes remain in the body after consumption, staying active in the upper stomach and small intestine. Many animal-based enzymes are secreted by the pancreas, but the acidity balance in your dog’s system is often inadequate when it comes to digestion. This leads to a lot of missed nutrients in your pet’s diet.
Of note is the addition of peptidase, which is a specialized protease enzyme designed to aid in the digestion of complicated enzymes from gluten. When food is not properly digested, things called exorphin peptides are made in the small intestine. These peptides result in a number of digestive difficulties.
The Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics formula features a number of digestive enzymes, including 492 grams per 1,000 mg of product. These include bromelain, protease, peptidase, amylase, lipase, glucoamylase, cellulase, hemicellulase, maltase, alpha-galactosidase, and beta-glucanase.
The blend also features 131 mg of probiotic blend per 1,000 mg of formula. This includes a strain of many beneficial bacteria, like lactobacillus brevis and Bifidobacterium longum. There are natural prebiotic dietary ingredients, like chicory root and fennel seed. Psyllium seed husk is also added to the Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics formula to aid absorption.
The suggested dose of this Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics formula is 1/8 of a teaspoon per 30 pounds of your dog’s weight per meal. The product should be mixed with a small amount of water and subsequently mixed into the food. Start with larger or smaller doses if your pet lacks familiarity with the formula.
For dogs with digestive problems, double the formula.
Dosage should be commenced at one-quarter dose in cases of dogs with digestive imbalance, as it takes time for the formula to adapt to your dog’s system. The formula is powerful and will rebalance your pet’s digestive tract, so be patient and pay careful attention to how your dog behaves. Adjust the formula accordingly if there are any complications.
The formula should be stored in the refrigerator on arrival.
