Pancreatic Enzymes are essential for your pets to effectively digest their food. The lipase, protease and amylase help to break down fats, proteins and carbohydrates respectively.
Although they are produced naturally by the pancreas, sometimes dogs & cats don’t produce the necessary amount of digestive enzymes to properly break down their food. This can lead to the food particles being too big to be absorbed through the intestine wall. The food passes straight through the intestine without your pet being able to absorb the nutrients.
By using Chemeyes Pancreatic Enzymes supplement, you can ensure that the food can be properly broken down. You can be confident that you are giving your best friend the nutrition that they need.
How to use
Pancreatic Enzymes are really easy to use. As a guide, just add 1-2 Pancreatic Enzyme Capsules or 0.25 – 1g per 100g of food. There is no exact amount that you need to feed to your pet. Depending on their size, breed, age and the type of food that they eat you will need to make adjustments until you find the ideal amount for your pet. If your dog or cat is underweight, you should give them the amount of food based on their ideal weight, and not the weight that they are currently at.
Start with the lowest recommended amount of pancreatic enzymes and see how they work. It is quite easy to tell when the dose is right from checking your pet’s stools.
If you see that they are starting to get firm you are heading in the right direction. Slowly increase the amount until everything is looking really healthy. You should also notice a change in their personality with them not being so ravenous and eating so quickly. More importantly, you should see that they are steadily gaining weight and looking generally healthy.
When to use
Pancreatic enzymes need to be used with every meal that your pet eats. We find that when they are regularly using pancreatic enzymes they are able to manage eating treats and snacks without causing them any problems.
There is no need to persuade your pet to swallow the capsules if they don’t want to. They are easy to open and the contents can be sprinkled directly onto the food. If you are using kibble or dry food there is potential for some of the powder to be left behind in the bowl. A small amount of water to mix it in can be helpful to ensure it all gets eaten.
