Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics for Dogs
Digest Basic by Enzymedica
We offer and highly recommend Digest Basic essential enzymes, manufactured by Enzymedica brand enzymes, created for human use but excellent for today's pet diet as well.. We have found their products to be the highest quality, most effective digestive aids available without any unnecessary additives, fillers or binders. Digest Basic is also a non-GMO, Vegan & Kosher product.
Digestive enzymes are essential for the proper digestion of carbohydrates, fats, fiber and protein. Dry pet food (kibble), from the least expensive to the very best available, lacks critical enzymes needed for proper digestion, in part because it must be cooked at such a high temperature to ensure its shelf life and also to effectively kill all bacteria - the good as well as the bad.
When digestion is compromised, it creates the perfect environment for a yeast infection to thrive, which is the primary culprit for itching, scratching, and chewing. This lack of enzymes can even contribute to bad breath and gum disease. For raw-fed pets, digestive enzymes are critical for the digestion of the raw vegetables in their diets. Even in cases such as this, where the food has not been cooked, canines simply do not produce the proper enzymes to digest vegetables in any form, and starches in particular.
Simply open the capsule and pour it over the food. For the average 50 lb. dog, give one at each meal, morning and evening. For smaller dogs and cats, divide one capsule between two meals. For very small dogs (under six pounds), give us a call and we can discuss the best dose.
