A very special blend of digestive enzymes with high level of lipase fat-digesting enzyme.
Some dogs and especially older dogs eating a kibble diet with grain or grain-free that are high in carbohydrates require more carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, fat and various types of protein-digesting enzymes.
Kibble is processed at high temperatures (120 deg. C - 248 deg. F) and made from highly processed ingredients. To extract the maximum level of nutrients and not have undigested materials enter the colon, causing many digestive issues. Ranging from diarrhea, bloating, vomiting, bad breath or horrific-smelling flatulence (farts).
Excessive formation of gas in the stomach or intestine is referred to as flatulence. The most common cause of chronic flatulence is caused by a diet that is poorly digested by the dog. These poorly digestible diets cause excessive fermentation in the colon and subsequent gas formation. Carbohydrates, starches and high-fat diets are all commonly associated with flatulence in dogs.
Often older/senior dogs, even those that are being fed premium kibble food (with or without grain) will experience flatulence and suffer maldigestion because of poor digestion and poor absorption of nutrients from the diet.
Formulated with bacterial and fungal origin digestive enzyme sources because these can be better for pets as they tend to resist digestion in the stomach and function in a wider range of pH.
ALSO HELPS DOGS FED A RAW FOOD DIET THAT MAY HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF FAT AND /OR RAW VEGETABLE CONTENT
Even if your pet consumes a raw diet, he may benefit from supplemental digestive enzymes.
Protease enzymes break down long protein chains into easily digested amino acids.
Amylase enzyme breaks down complex carbohydrates and starch into simple, easy-to-digest sugars for the dog to use as energy however, naturally is produced in small amounts in dogs as the natural diet is low in carbohydrates and starch. Lipase enzymebreaks down fats into free fatty acids so they can be easily digested and pass through the intestinal barrier. The Cellulase group of enzymes is not naturally produced by dogs. This class of digestive enzymes breaks down the fiber of fruits, vegetables, grains and pulses (peas, chickpeas, lentils) to release the valuable nutrients stored inside the plant cell walls.
Together these enzymes help unlock important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other important nutrients in the food so your pet’s body can much better extract, absorb and assimilate them.
