Description

PancrePlus is prescribed as a digestive aid and replacement therapy for those who have exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). EPI makes it hard or impossible for the body to digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats because the pancreas isn't producing the enzymes it should. This powder should be added to regular meals to aid in normal digestion.

Uses

For use as a digestive aid in replacement therapy where digestion of protein, carbohydrate and fat is inadequate due to exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.

Possible Side Effects

Some pets may exhibit reactions, such as allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives), diarrhea or loose stool. If you observe any of these side effects, contact your veterinarian as soon as possible. Oral and/or tongue ulceration may occur at higher doses. Ulcers typically resolve with a reduction in dose or slight dilution of product with water.

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your dog is taking before starting this medication. Do not use PancrePlus in pets that are allergic to pork.

Precautions

Discontinue use in animals with symptoms of sensitivity. 

Also available in a tablet form.

    Saved my dog

    By on

    My dog was diagnosed with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency about a year ago, at which time she had lost 1/3 of her body weight and was extremely ill. It took 3 months to get that diagnosis, testing her for everything from allergies to giardia. After finally getting the diagnosis, this was the most reasonably priced supplement we could find that is truly vet recommended and prescription strength, and within two days of adding it to her food you could tell a difference! A year later, she has gained the weight back and is doing better than ever.

    EPI lifesaver

    By on

    My pup was diagnosed with EPI last summer and this medicine has been a lifesaver. Administered with her food every meal her symptoms have all but disappeared. It took a little playing around with dosing at first, but now that we have a system down, it works like a charm!

    This product works

    When I found out my German Shepherd had EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency ) We started on this powder right away! His bowels have gotten much better and he has gained his weight back. This product works and for the price being much cheaper than the high end brands.

    Use toothpick to poke holes in top

    By on

    My GSD has been on this wonder powder for years. I use a toothpick to poke holes in the foil seal and just sprinkle on her food. I can easily gage dose after all these years.

    Works but inconvenient

    By on

    My dog needs this, so it is not an option not to purchase. I don't understand the design of this bottle. It is a tall bottle with a very short measure spoon. I cannot use that measure spoon because I don't have a toddlers hand. I use my own, but still not long enough to reach bottom. I wish they either provide a measure spoon long enough to reach the bottom or change to a wider and shorter bottle with a wide mouth.

    This worked so well!

    By on

    My dog Chewy needed this powder on all of the foods that he ate, no matter the size. His pancreas stopped working so this acted in its place. The powder really did the trick until he got diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. (That’s what caused the problems in the first place.) He used this powder until the day he died and it worked like a charm.

    Best Stuff Ever!

    By on

    My 12 year old Cat, Molly, was just diagnosed with EPI & prescribed PancrePlus powder. I was told that it might take up to a week to see results. It took 1 DAY! Molly went from having severe daily Diarrhea & vomiting to no vomiting & once daily fully formed bowel movement. Unbelievable! She had lost a lot of weight & we just had her 1 week recheck with her Dr. yesterday. Everyone was surprised to see she had gained 3/4 of a pound in 6 days! You can tell just by looking at her that she feels so much better! Worth every penny this Rx costs! I can’t say enough good things about it!

    Works great.

    We have a German Shepherd with (EPI) Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, she was diagnosed at about 3 years old. This works very well! That being said, the directions on the label are ambiguous at best. The dose for a cat vs dog is unrealistic!!!! (unless you have a cat sized dog). Our GSD needs at least 1 level teaspoon per 2 cups of food. If she is experiencing an increase in loose stool/diarrhea we give more until she is back to her “new normal”. Her stools are very rarely like they were before she showed symptoms. But she is back to her normal weight and her coat is shiny looking and healthy feeling again. It took about 3- 4 months to get her back to her weight and probably about We have a German Shepherd with (EPI) Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, she was diagnosed at about 3 years old.
