Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! After months of constant diarrhea and significant weight loss, our mini Aussie finally got a diagnosis of EPI. Within a day of being on these enzymes, her stool became solid and she is now starting to regain some of the weight she has lost. This has saved her life!!! I mix her food with the enzymes and 2 tablespoons of warm water, then let it sit for 30 minutes, which has worked for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Results Our nearly 14 year old miniature longhair dachshund (Gemma) developed EPI with all the classic symptoms. She weighed 7.7 lbs when she started the supplement and in 3 weeks she now weighs 9 lbs. She also started B-12 shots at the same time. Her weight gain has been matched by increased energy, playfulness and interest. We are very thankful for the turnaround. We feed her (and her pack mates) three times a day. Gemma gets a 1/4 teaspoon of the Pancrezyme powder, 1/4 cup of premium dry food plus about a tablespoon of home food (or canned dog food) all soaked in 1 tablespoon of water. The food is well mixed and allowed to soak for 20 minutes. Gemma goes after her food with typical dachshund gusto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pancrezeme powder works This powder was my last ditch effort to save our Shepard who has had diarrhea for months and lost 25 pounds. We tried other enzyme powders without success. Finally her digestion has stabilized and she is on the road to gaining weight back. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Malabsorption pancreatic disease Hudson was down to 92lbs and slowing fading away. There was no definitive diagnosis without surgery. He was first treated for IBD and that did not work. Then we started the Pancrenzymes and he gained 16 lbs in 6 weeks. We all look at it as a miracle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from finally found an answer to our GSD pancreatic insufficiency. He continued losing weight as we were trying other things we had been recommended by different vets until a specialist told us this is the only thing that will help the insufficiency...not probiotics and other digestive enzymes. Thats fine for other digestive issues but not this disease.

How much should I give my 7 month old GS mix?

Pearl is a pound rescue I adopted. Husky GS mix. Currently weighs 46lbs. Had Parvo right after being rescued, eats her own poo and has had diarrhea for 3 months now. She also has extreme hip dysplasia. Poor thing. Anyway she has been on metronidazole. I just started the enzymes yesterday. I am using 1/2 teaspoon. Mix it in wet food and then put it on top of dry. Then let it sit 15 to 20 minutes before feeding. Is that a good enough amount?
Asked by: PattyB
Sure, that is a good amount. The dose can only be determined by your veterinarian and may be adjusted over time based on her response.

will Pancrezyme cause bad breath and dogie odor

16 lb Westie Malaki Pancrezyme was started 6 days ago . Good results ,diarrhea stopped , energy back ,Malaki is experiencing bad breath and odor is this normal ? After reading this site we realized we were not waiting 15 to 20 minutes before feeding, could that cause a problem ?
Asked by: sam
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.

Pancrezyme and sore dog 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.
Asked by: jilbert
Consult your veterinarian if your pet is experiencing side effects from the drug. Pancreved tablets may be an option.
