Dr. Mercola Digestive Enzymes for Cats & DogsDr. Mercola
Does your pet eat mostly commercially processed food such as kibble or canned food? If so, there’s a good chance she isn’t receiving all the enzymes she may need. Even though your pet’s body can make some of the enzymes needed to digest food, it relies on the naturally occurring enzymes in food to aid in optimal digestion.When it comes to digestive enzyme supplements, it’s a mistake to think that “one size fits all” or that one digestive enzyme product works for every type of pet food. The amount of carbohydrate, or sugar, in your pet’s food determines what type of enzymes he needs. In other words, enzymes should match the diet.For highly processed diets like kibble that are high in starches and carbohydrates, including rice, ancient grains, potatoes or legumes, your pet needs a specialized digestive enzyme formula that can handle the heavy carb load.
Digestive Enzymes for Cats & Dogs on Kibble Diets or Pets with Sensitive Stomachs contains nine human-grade enzymes from porcine pancreas as well as select fungal sources, plus Papain from papaya, Bromelain from pineapple and Betaine Hydrochloride for the optimal digestion of high-carbohydrate diets.Why sensitive stomachs? Pancreatin, a pancreatic enzyme typically found in formulas designed for meat-based diets, can boost stomach acid and potentially irritate sensitive stomachs when the diet contains lower levels of protein.
Digestive Enzyme for Cats & Dogs formulated for pets with sensitive stomachs contains lower levels of pancreatic enzymes.Provide your pet with the right combination of enzymes to match his diet, and support his digestive function with Digestive Enzymes for Cats & Dogs on Kibble Diets or for Pets with Sensitive Stomachs.
