Epizyme is a prescription powder that acts as a digestive aid. This medication is most commonly used in those who are not able to properly digest food due to the lack of digestive enzymes created by the pancreas—a condition known as exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). Epizyme helps to improve the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, while also helping your pet get to a healthy weight.
Epizyme Powder helps to manage symptoms of insufficient digestion by improving your pet's ability to utilize foods to get back to a healthy weight.

Please contact your veterinarian if the following adverse reactions occur: allergic reactions, such as difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue or face, hives, diarrhea or loose stools.

Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Epizyme. Speak to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines.
