Signs Your Pet Needs Enzymes

Do dogs and cats need enzymes? When would digestive enzymes be indicated for pets? To be sure, enzymes are always beneficial as they can reduce the digestive burden on dogs and cats, especially as they age. Studies and experience shows that enzymes also help support systemic processes like breaking down yeast, fungi and disease-causing bacteria, to name a few.

So, in most cases enzymes for pets are a good addition to the diet, but in some cases they are absolutely critical. Dogs and cats can suffer from poor natural enzyme production when they age, have poor diet, or just aren’t fully healthy. The main result of poor enzyme production is malnutrition—food nutrients are not fully digested or broken down. When this happens, your pet relies on fermentation to complete the digestion process and many nutrients are simply lost. The following signs likely indicate that your pet would has enzyme deficiencies:

Signs of Enzyme Deficiency

Changes in the stool

  • Foul-smell
  • Undigested food in the stool
  • Diarrhea
  • Yellow stool

Other Signs of Enzyme Deficiency

  • Bad Breath
  • Vomiting
  • The appearance of bloating
  • Gas
  • Yeast and allergies

Malabsorption signs are unpleasant, but if not addressed can lead to much more serious conditions. Malabsorption issues can be addressed easily through supplemental enzymes. A high-quality, comprehensive digestive enzymes for pets formula will lessen the burden on your pet's pancreas to produce the enzymes that are absent in a modern pet diet. The malabsorption signs will subside or disappear and your pet can get back to being nutritionally sound and healthy.

We recommend Enzyme Miracle® because it contains the needed digestive enzymes that a canine or feline diet needs to deliver all the nutrition out of the food. In addition, it doubles as a systemic enzyme product to support many of your pet's metabolic processes—bringing amazing results for animals in need of digestive and systemic support. Enzyme Miraclemaximizes pet health by getting to the root of the issue, being a powerful 2-in-1 formula.

Enzyme Miracle Review (Excerpt from Amazon) I have a Lhasa Apso that is 10 years old and was recently diagnosed with diabetes. I was instructed by her veterinarian that I would have to change her diet completely. She has always been a finicky eater and one that was hard to keep on a specific diet and time when to feed her. As I struggled to get her blood sugar under control with insulin her weight began to drop slowly over time as she became more and more finicky with her new diet. Not only was her weight dropping and she constantly going through bouts of diarrhea but her overall appearance was getting worse, her coat was dry and rough to the touch. I started researching her symptoms online and came across what I believe she may have been suffering from for a long time even before the diabetes. I believe she has EPI (Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency) a disease whereas her body does not produce the right type or quantity of the enzymes essential for the proper digestion and absorbtion of food. This disease also causes symptoms which will have a tendency to keep your dog from eating because their not feeling well. It was at this time I purchased Nusentia's Enzyme Miracle for dogs and what a difference it has made for my dog. Almost immediately she started eating better which allowed me to better control her blood sugar with insulin. Within a couple weeks she had started to gain some of her weight back and her coat is nice and soft again just like when she was a younger dog. As for the bouts of diarrhea she has not had any for several months now and I no longer have to give her the oral medications that the veterinarian would prescribe for the bouts of diarrhea. This product has truly been a miracle product for my dog and I. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to help their dog be as healthy as possible throughout their life.
