Dogs and cats need digestive enzymes to break down their food and deliver nutrients to the rest of their body. Many pets have an enzyme deficiency because:
- Enzymes are destroyed during the processing of most commercial pet foods.
- As pets get older, they produce fewer digestive enzymes.
- Stress, anxiety, illness and antibiotics use may reduce enzyme efficiency.
Because vitamins and minerals cannot do their jobs without enzymes, a deficiency will affect not only digestion, but the pet's overall health. Signs to look for include:
- Gas, bad breath, hairballs and body odor
- Skin and coat problems - excessive shedding and itching
Diarrhea or constipation
Food and/or skin allergies
- Weight issues
- Poor immune health
