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

        Comments about Animal Essentials Plant Enzymes & Probiotics:

        I have a 11 year old Sheltie that was having serious colon problems and my Vet diagnosed her with colon stress. The last two months after visiting the groomer she come home passing blood and I was at my wits end so I started researching products to help her and found this one and read all of the reviews and decided to order it and I am glad I did. The vet put her on antibiotics which cleared her up, but she has also changed her diet to a prescription dry and wet food and along with Animal Essentials Plant Enzymes & Probiotics she is doing better. I have been using this product for about a month now and I find that it has really helped along with the diet change.

            One of my sweet 2 y/o cats has had terrible digestive issues since he was a kitten; loose stools, getting stuck in his hair on his back legs, and no fun for him every time I had to clean him. A friend mentioned enzymes and probiotics, so I decided to give it a try--I only wish I had known about this product sooner. It began to work immediately, with his first meal; no messy cleanup, no growling stomach, and he continued to be his sweet self--it was a miracle. I would highly recommend this product to anyone having these issues with their cat; in fact, my Vet also endorses the use of Animal Essentials Plant Enzymes and Probiotics. Thank you for a quality product; my cat thanks you, too.

              My dog was diagnosed with pancreatitis 2 years ago. The only advice I was given by the vet was to watch her protein intake and to give her an antibiotic series when flair ups occured. After doing research on my own I decided to try this product. This is a miracle product. My once underweight dog is now a healthy weight and she has not had a flair up since I started her on this product!

                  Long time cat owner and always had to deal with the cats throwing up on occasion. My one older cat had started throwing alot almost couple time a week. The Vet had no idea what the problem might be. I did then switch the cats food to a more senior diet and started giving her pro-biotics and for the most part the problem has resolved. I am continuing with this and giving to my other cat. I just mix in with can food once a day.

                    Digestive enzymes are essential for all pets, including those on a raw diet. Why? Because even raw food lacks the essential enzymes that your pet needs to digest and optimize its nutrition. This is because in the ancestral feeding scenario an animal will also consume the entrails of its prey. And it's in these entrails where the majority of digestive enzymes are found. Today's modern pet foods, raw and otherwise, lack this component. Regardless of the type of diet, pets will enormously benefit from the addition of digestive enzymes like Animal Essentials. I particularly like this product because it also includes probiotics.

                      Granted, this product did not save a life, but it did help with our MinPin's IBS (severe gas) problem. His gas problem made us want to evacuate the house.

                      We also have a very finicky long haired chihuahua, who we administer this product to also. He always knows when we put additives (medicines or vitamins) in his food and will refuse to eat. Even when I don't mix this well into their food, he eats without a problem, so I would say that it is tasteless (I'm not about to try it to be sure).

                      This product is easy to use, your dog won't know that it is in their food, it is extremely effective against IBS affected dogs and it has given both our dogs more vigorous life.

                      I gave 5 paws to this product because of how effective and easy to use it was, the only negative - the cost. Seems these days that any animal product is much more expensive than human equivalents. My wife and I use Probiotics and we don't spend this much on them.

                      Great product, excellent experience with this vendor, we will definately buy from Only Natural Pet again.

                        When a carnivore (cat or dog) don't eat raw food, they don't get the necessary digestive enzymes in their diet, which can negatively affect their health. This product helps overcome this problem. It is excellent when feeding canned food to your pet. Also, you don't have to purchase separate digestive enzymes and probiotics. It's an all-in-one product.

                        I use this on my two cats. It has improved their skin and reduced hairballs. I don't need to give them it when they are eating a raw meal but whenever I give them canned, this always goes into it. I occasionally give this to my dog which helps him with digestion and skin issues. I would recommend this for most pets, especially if they don't eat raw.
