All natural digestive aid with plant enzymes and probiotics. This product assists in the digestion and absorption of nutrients which are necessary to maintain good health. It relieves the extra burden placed on the digestive system, as this product breaks down fats, carbohydrates, cellulose and protein. Enzyme and probiotic supplementation is a good preventive measure to ensure good health. No lactose, sugars, or preservatives.

Digestive enzymes are special types of protein molecules that catalyze the breakdown of food into components that can be utilized by the body. These proteins are not stored in the body but are released based on the anticipation aroma or actual presence of food in the digestive system. Because they are not stored they must be taken with each meal, preferably with the food. Animal Essential's enzymes contain a blend of plant and microbial produced enzymes. None of them are from animal sources.

Each enzyme is highly specific as to the class of food it works on and the temperature and pH of its effective range of activity. Animal derived enzymes will work in only one area of the digestive system, while plant and microbial enzymes work throughout the whole system, from mouth through the stomach into the intestines. As the body ages less enzymes are produced and supplementation is necessary to assure optimum health.

To maintain optimum health in an animal it needs to be fed an optimum diet, but also needs to have digestive efficiency necessary to assimilate the food ingredients. The digestive efficiency can be reduced by stress of any sort, excitement , anxiety (travel separation, working stress and so on). To insure optimum digestion and health we recommend the addition of this supplement to each meal. For optimum utilization the supplement should be added to the food and should be moistened shortly before feeding to be effective.

Since Animal Essential's enzymes are derived from plant and microbial sources they are active throughout the whole gastrointestinal tract not in a specific section, as animal derived enzymes are. These enzymes are active from pH of 3 to 9 and at a temperature of about 100 Degrees Fahrenheit. Animal derived enzymes either work in the stomach at a low pH or in the intestine at much higher pH. Since ours work over a broader range they are active longer in the system at reducing the food into usable components.

Available in 100g (approx. 25 tsps) or 300g (approx. 75 tsps) Powder

    I use this for my elderly dog with cancer who is having digestive and gas issues and with my newest rescue cat who was eating who-knows-what to survive. He was horrible smelly gas and feces. This has made a world of difference in both of them.

        My newest cat suffered from severe and horribly stinky diahrea....who knows what he was eating to survive. My vet recommended this and it's amazing; it has worked wonders and he now rarely has diahria and the smell is tolerable and no longer makes you want to run from the house. My elderly dog has cancer that affects his ability to deficate. This has relieved his gas and seems to make him feel much better. THANK YOU!!

        Great for senior cat with pancreatitis

          Comments about Animal Essentials Plant Enzymes & Probiotics:

          I've used this product for about 6 months now as a supplement for my 13-year-old Maine Coon/Siamese mix who was diagnosed with mild IBD and pancreatitis. In combination with his limited-ingredient, novel protein diet, this product has been wonderfully effective. At his worst, he was vomiting 3-5 times a week and just looked haggard. Now, he hardly ever vomits (except for the occasional hairball) and is happy and energetic. I'm convinced this product made a huge difference in his health and continue to use it every day, 1/4 teaspoon mixed into his wet food at night. I would recommend it for all senior cats, especially ones with any digestive issues.

            My yellow lab's feet we're pinkish, everything I read indicated that he may have a yeast overgrowth that irritates his skin on his feet and belly. My dog only eats holistic grain free dog food but we picked up hearty bones as a treat, and they contain some flours that we think may have triggered the yeast problem. After a few weeks , he is doing great and has white feet again.

              Use twice daily to promote healthy doo-doo. And it works. Doesn't go overboard, isn't hard to find the right amount to use, looks clean, doesn't smell funny, and it helped my dog.

              My dog had some major gut issues last year and this plus ONP Digestive Enzyme have helped get him back on track. The vet said he would be on Pred the rest of his life, well he's down to 1/4 mg every 3 days and very soon I will eliminate it all together. I attribute his improvement to both of these products.

                  I have a 9 yr old cockapoo/spaniel mix. He has a lot of skin allergies and I thought since everything starts in the guy I'd try this. He is on the Hill's prescription z/d diet. So far all this has done is make his stools very runny; been using it about 2 weeks now. I may switch to the immunity one since that will help with his allergies more.

                    I've been giving this to my five dogs ages 6 months to 17 years old for about two weeks now. My two English Bull Terriers have especially sensitives stomachs and are extremely picky about what they eat on top of it.. So it was nice to find a probiotic and digestive enzyme that I can easily mix in their food without them noticing. So far it has really seemed to help their digestive tract and at a very affordable price. Always pleased at how fast it arrives too.

                      The use of the product is very easy, but you have to supply your own meassuring spoon.
                      Bought this product for my cat who always has had digestive issues. Have been using another product for over a year now, which has been very effective. Due to high demand, my regular product was on backorder, so I decided to give this one a try. Right from the start, I knew it wasn't working. My cat's stomach made gurgeling sounds again, like it used to, and his bowel movements smelled really bad. Was very disappointed. Can't wait for my regular product to be in stock again.
