OptaGest - Digestive Enzymes for Dogs and Cats
OptaGest is a complete digestive aid for dogs and cats and will help reduce diarrhea, bad breath, body odor, hairballs and excessive shedding. It contains four plant-based enzymes to assure proper digestion and absorption of nutrients. Plus, OptaGest has clinically tested levels of fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a prebiotic which provides food for the good intestinal bacteria.
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:
OptaGest has NO FILLERS, such as lactose, sugars or preservatives. OptaGest has a slightly sweet flavor that pets enjoy. OptaGest is made in the U.S.A. and In Clover (makers of OptaGest) is a charter member of the NASC (National Animal Supplements Council).
Optagest is a powder and mixes well in wet or dry food.
