The enzymes present in Dr. Mercola Digestive Enzymes for Pets:
Cats should consume 1/2 gram of Healthy Pets Digestive Enzymes (1/2 scoop) per serving.
Sounds pretty simple but what a powerful wellness tool you are giving your pet when you think about the fact that at least 70% of the immune system is housed in the digestive tract. A pet with a healthy digestive tract will be able to face the car, hotel, kennel or pet sitter with a happy, comfortable tummy and a healthier system over all. Watch how digestive enzymes work in this fun .
I feed my pet a raw diet, does my pet still need digestive enzymes? Assuming that you are feeding only 100% raw meat with no potatoes, rice or vegetables that needs to be cooked (such as FullLife™). You can reduce the amount of Enzyme Miracle® to ½ the recommended serving size at each meal. Your pet can still benefit from enzyme supplementation since there is an amount of enzymes lost in the freezing and handling of meat. There is no risk of "overdoing" it with enzymes as any enzymes over and above what is needed to digest the food can be used for metabolic functions. Those enzymes can also go to work on breaking down possible allergens that may be lingering, and support the gut as well. Pets suffering from the reaction of flea bite saliva can also benefit from supplemental enzymes.

Pancrezyme (pancreatic enzymes) is used to treat pancreatic insufficiency or maldigestion syndrome. It's used in pets whose bodies are not making a sufficient amount of pancreatic enzymes. Pancrezyme requires a prescription from your veterinarian.Enzymes for dogs should be supplemented once in two to three days, whereas for older dogs, daily enzyme intake is strongly recommended. With age, the dog’s digestive as well as immune system grows weak causing more dermatitis and dog itchy skin and flaking. Hence it becomes mandatory to include these chemicals in their everyday diet. It is generally recommended to continue enzyme supplements for at least four months before significant long term improvement can be seen. For other pets, one should consult a veterinarian as enzyme requirement depends on size and weight.Pancrezyme is a form of pancreatic enzymes normally produced by the pancreas for the purpose of digesting and absorbing fats, proteins, and carbohydrates It is used for those pets in which the enzymes are not produced naturally and in sufficient quantity.Enzymes are the proteins responsible for a lot of functions required for the sustenance of good health. One of the most important functions of enzymes is to facilitate absorption of nutrients and digestion. Deficiency of enzymes in pets can cause starvation which can prove fatal; which is why a pet owner must have all the know-how about enzymes.
