ENZYME SUPPLEMENT FACT SHEET
Since 1990, Naturpaw (new name) has been producing the finest digestive enzyme blends for pets found anywhere. Our proprietary formulations are targeted, concentrated powders that begin working in the stomach, just like enzymes in raw food. They require only a small dosage that is easy to mix into moist food or put into a capsule for pilling. Enzymes should be given any time cooked or processed food is served to replace the natural enzymes destroyed by heat.
Even more than we humans, dogs and cats need the benefit of enzymes. Our pets evolved eating raw, fresh, unprocessed foods, which contain the perfect quanitity of enzymes to digest all the proteins, carbohydrates, and fats contained within them. Modern day pet foods are devoid of enzyme activity needed for optimum health. We have seen almost miraculous transformations in animals after enzyme supplementation begins, including relief from itchiness, allergies, flea infestation, weepy eyes and ears, dry flaking skin, rashes, hair loss and hot spots. Enzymes also help other supplements work better by increasing their absorption into the body.
Enzymes Plus, our most popular formula, contains a complete spectrum of digestive enzymes plus kelp extract, bioflavinoids, and two natural forms of vitamin C, rose hips and acerola. The kelp provides the trace minerals that are the “sparkplugs” for many biological processes, and vitamin C contributes vital immune support.
Good Digestion combines digestive enzymes with probiotic cultures, fructooliosaccharides (FOS), and alfalfa, barley and wheat grass to address the very common problem in dogs and cats of poor digestion, gas, and loose stools, whether the result of antibiotic therapy, poor diet, or inherited digestive weakness, Good Digestion repopulates the intestinal tract with beneficial bacteria, which in turn help to break down and assimilate the nutrients in food. Good Digestion is a must after a course of antibiotic treatment.
Enzymes pH contains not only digestive enzymes, but also cranberry extract and two natural urinary acidifiers, DL-methionine (an amino acid found in meat and dairy products) and sodium ascorbate (a form of vitamin C). These ingredients help alleviate urinary blockages that are rampant in cats. Cranberry prevents any bacteria in the urinary tract from adhering to cell walls and causing infection. An acidic urine causes excess minerals excreted through the kidneys to remain in solution instead of forming struvite crystals that irritate and clog delicate urethral tissue. Although Enzymes pH is intended primarily for cats, it can be useful for dogs with struvite crystals. It’s not recommended for dogs with oxalate crystals. Check with your vet.
