Description

Animal Essentials’ Plant Enzymes & Probiotics assists in the digestion and absorption of nutrients which are necessary to maintain your pet’s good health. A small, very economical sprinkling each day will relieve extra burden placed on the digestive system by breaking down fats, carbohydrates, cellulose and protein. As your dog or cat’s body ages less enzymes are produced and supplementation is necessary for optimum health. Digestive efficiency can also be reduced by excitement, anxiety or stress of any sort (travel, separation, working stress, etc.). To ensure optimum digestion and health we recommend the addition of this supplement to each meal.

Key Benefits
  • Assists in the digestion and absorption of nutrients which are necessary to maintain your pet’s good health
  • Adding just a sprinkle a day will help the digestive system by breaking down fats, carbohydrates, cellulose and protein
  • Digestive efficiency can be reduced by excitement, anxiety or stress of any sort
  • Contains a blend of plant and microbial produced enzyme, none from animal source
  • For optimum results the supplement should be added to the food and should be moistened shortly before feeding to be effective

Nutritional Info
Ingredients

Alpha Amylase: Helps In the Digestion of Carbohydrates By Helping to Hydrolyze the Alpha 1-4 Glycosidic Linkages of Polysaccharides to Dextrin, D-Glucose, Maltose and Oligosaccharides. Beta Amylase: Works On the End of the Starch Molecules Instead of In the Center, As Does Alpha-Amylase and Results In the Production of Sugars from the Starch Molecules. Proteases: Work On Proteins to Reduce Them to Individual Amino Acids (What They Are Composed Of); Some of These Are Acid Stable Proteases That Start Their Work In the Stomach. Proteins Take the Longest and Are the Most Difficult Food Component to Digest. with Acid Stable Protease the Decomposition Starts Earlier In the Digestive Tract, Thus Providing More Complete Digestion. Lipase: Helps to Metabolize Fats (Triglycerides). the Fats Are Broken Down Into Mono Glycerides, Diglycerides and Glycerol. If Given In Larger Quantities the Lipases Can Enter the Bloodstream and Help Remove Excess Triglycerides from the Arteries and the Veins Improving Circulation. Cellulase: As the Name Implies, Breaks Down Cellulose (Fiber) By Helping to Break Down Cell Walls, Resulting In Both Necessary Solubleand Insoluble Fiber. Hemicellulase: Hemi Cellulose and An Amorphous (Sticky) Type of Cellulose That Form Long Strings As Cellulose, Is Crystalline. This Enzyme Helps Break This Polymer Down Into Its Individual Sugars---Primarily Xylose. Bromelain: Is Extracted from Pineapple (Ananas Comosus) and Is A Protolytic (Protein) Digesting Enzyme, That Helps Break the Proteins Into Oligio Peptides and Amino Acids. Probiotic: Is A Lactic Acid Producing Bacteria, Which Bears Spores. These Organisms Exhibit the Characteristics of Both the Genera Lactobacillus and Bacillus. Because They Are Encapsulated In Spores These Organisms Are Protected from the Environment and Heat. They Are Activated In the Gut By the Hydrochloric Acid, Producing Lactic Acid Bacteria. Treatment with Antibiotics Results In the Killing of These Bacteria, Which Guard Against Yeast Colonies (Candida Yeast Species). These Desirable Bacteria Inhibit the Growth of Putrid Bacterial In the Intestine, Thereby Maintaining the Balance of Intestinal Flora. Calcium Sulfate: the Primary Carrier or Excipient for This Product Is Food Grade and Adds A Minimum Amount of Calcium to the Diet, About 200 mg Per Gm of Product.

  • Might work for others, not for my cat

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have tried out 2 products from this company. Both supplements didn't meet my expectations. Ingredients list seems very complete (Amylase, Lipase and other 'ases, lol) but my cat would not eat anything containing this. I thank Chewy for reimbursing the money. I tried another brand and it was a hit. My cat is back to his old couch potato self, playful and eating well.

  • Perfect in combination with raw food

    By on

    We feed Fresh is Best Raw food to one of our dogs and prescription food to our older dog. We were advised to use this probiotic with our raw food. Our dogs are really feeling their best. I know that a healthy gut contributes so much to the health of your dog. Our 11 year old is acting like a 2 year old! We feel that this is one of the best out there and we have tried many over the past 30 years..

  • What a find

    My kitty had constipation issues and vomiting issues. He no longer has constipation issues and his vomiting is minimal along with several smaller meals a day.

  • Would recommend

    By on

    My 1.5 yr old cockerspaniel has recently started having stool and gas issues back in mid December. I started giving this about four weeks ago and it has helped her get back to normal stools and less gas. I was recently told by the vet that she has IBD so I am hoping this is enough to keep that at bay.

  • Best enzyme option found so far

    By on

    My 14 year old IBD/colitis/pancreatitis picky-eater kitty will eat food with this on it and it seems to have miraculously resolved her daily vomiting and diarrhea issues! The only issue is that she constantly cries for more food. This didn't happen with Prozyme. I'm going to try adding in a tiny amount of lactobacillus acidophilus to hopefully help with her satiety.

  • Will buy again

    By on

    I was using Dr. Merkel's before this and I actually like their effectiveness equally. What I like more about Animal Essentials is the value. more comes in the bottle and it was less than I previously spent. I have two pets with digestive issues, so they get this mixed in their food everyday. They don't seem to even notice it.

  • Great for itchy skin!

    By on

    I've been fighting seasonal dry, itchy skin in my aussie for several years. Nothing seemed to help - I tried switching food, eliminating gluten, adding all types of oil to her diet, vitamin E, brewer's yeast, etc. I put her on Animal Essentials supplement and within 2 days noticed significantly less scratching. And by the end of the first week, no scratching at all. Love this product!

  • Worked like a charm

    By on

    This is great for food transitions! I use it daily for a few of my cats that have digestive upset and use it intermitently for my other cats when we change food brands. It makes their coats nice and shiny and their litter box droppings smaller. Great investment!
