What is Pancrezyme?

Pancrezyme (pancreatic enzymes) is used to treat pancreatic insufficiency or maldigestion syndrome. It's used in pets whose bodies are not making a sufficient amount of pancreatic enzymes. Pancrezyme requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

How it works:

Cautions:
Pancrezyme is a concentrate derived from whole raw pancreas of porcine origin, and therefore should not be given to pets allergic to pork.

The usual dose of Pancrezyme powder in dogs is 3/4-1 teaspoonful mixed with each meal. After mixing, allow the mixture to stand for 15-20 minutes before feeding it to the pet. For cats, the usual dose of Pancrezyme powder is 1/4-3/4 teaspoonful of the powder mixed with each meal. After mixing, allow the mixture to stand for 15-20 minutes before feeding it to the pet.

What is Pancrezyme: Pancrezyme consists of enzymes naturally produced by the pancreas necessary for the digestion of food. Pancrezyme is used as a digestive aid and as replacement therapy for inadequate digestion due to pancreatic insufficiency. Pancreatic enzymes are derived from whole, raw pancreas of pork origin. Pancrezyme may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Pancrezyme to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has an allergy to pork. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given antacids such as Maalox, H2 blockers such as cimetidine or proton pump inhibitors such as Prilosec. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be given: Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The pet owner should avoid inhaling the powder as it might irritate the mouth. Pancrezyme should be given with food. Mix the powder with the pets food and let stand for 15-20 minutes before feeding the pet. Store Pancrezyme at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of Pancrezyme overdose may include diarrhea, excess fat in the feces, increased appetite, and weight loss.

What should I avoid while giving Pancrezyme to my pet: Pancrezyme should not be given to pets allergic to it, or to pets allergic to pork. The pet owner should avoid inhaling the powder as it might irritate the mouth.

What are the possible side effects of Pancrezyme: If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Pancrezyme and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips; tongue or face; hives). Continue giving Pancrezyme and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences diarrhea or loose stools. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Pancrezyme: Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given antacids such as Maalox, H2 blockers such as cimetidine or proton pump inhibitors such as Prilosec. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Pancrezyme. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about Pancrezyme written for health professionals that you may read.

Pancrezyme saved our dog's life Our 10-year-old German Shepher/Lab mix dog started losing a LOT of weight, ravenously hungry, and having really runny "cowpile" stools. She was diagnosed with EPI and we started using Pancrezyme. Within 2 weeks, we could see the weight going back on her and her old zip was back. Great product, simple to use, and it works. PetMeds is wonderful about sending the product so quickly when we need it. 06/20/2011
Pancrezyme This enzyme saved my dogs life! He was losing weight very quickly because he was unable to digest his food.since starting this prescription , Yoda has regained weight and energy! Awesome stuff! 08/03/2014
Saved Remi's life Our 4 yr old lab mix started losing weight Oct 2013-vet said she was fine but we knew something was wrong. Cowpie stools, ravenously eating but still dropping weight. Finally hit on Pancrezyme and Milk Thistle pill combo after convincing vet we were NOT giving up on her. Cross country move in April put a rush on the timeline.....did not think she would make it. Started using product in March, by April she went from 64 lbs to her usual 95+. We are thankful daily we didn't give up on her. Small price to pay to give her (and us) more wonderful years 05/21/2014
Not cheap but it really works. Our14 year old dog was so sick and losing weight, we didn't think that she would make it to the New Year. The Vet tested for all sorts of things, the costs were mounting and it seemed like the end was near. Never heard of Pancrezyme, but we followed the Vet's directions and now we are believers! Our dog has gained weight, and her body is processing the food, not just pushing it out like when she was sick. Pancreatic Insufficiency is a serious problem, but this medicine really gets the job done. Thank you 800-Pet-Meds. 05/10/2014
Pancrezyme is what keeps Lucy a live. She can't be without it and thank goodness Pet Meds is there for her. Thank you for your caring and kindess. 02/24/2014

Answer: 
yes, if you were not waiting the 15 to 20 minutes before feeding....that could be the
culprit. You should notice an improvement now that you are using it correctly. If you dont, please
notify your vet to make sure there is no issue with the dog's gums.

My dog has been using Pancrezyme mixed with water and incubated 20 minutes on food before eating. His mouth lining way back in the cheeks are sore. What keeps the activated enzymes that stay in the mouth caught in cheek areas from starting to eat the lining of the dogs mouth? I give him extra broth with water afterwards but he uses enzymes 3 times a day. I am worried about his gums getting in poor shape and hence his teeth.

my jack russell takes 3 potassium citrate tablets mixed in his food at dinner. He also takes an omega oil cap and cosequin over his breakfast. when i start adding Pancrezyme to his food and letting it set, should I leave the supplements out of the 'enzymed' mix or is it ok for these things to stew too/ The potassium citrate are time released. i add them to his food to prevent stomach ache. Also, how long does the pancrezyme stay in the stomach? if I give a dog biscuit 20 minutes after dinner will the pancrezyme digest that too? Thank you.

Answer: 
I would not recommend adding the supplements to the food with the pancrezyme, you can give them with the meal at the time of feeding. The pancrezyme may no tbe effective 20 minutes after the meal has been given, most of the enzymes would have already been used up to digest the meal.
