Pancrezyme Tablets For Dogs and Cats are a supplemental tablet form of pancreatic enzymes for cases of pancreatic enzyme deficiency. This formula is FDA-approved for use in dogs and cats.
Pancreatic enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas and are needed to help digest and absorb fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. In pancreatic insufficiency, these enzymes are not produced in sufficient quantity.
No one regimen will be successful for every patient. The above dosage should be adjusted according to the severity of the pancreatic exocrine deficiency and weight of the animal. In cases of chronic insufficiency, the dosage should be increased until desired results are obtained.
Each 2.8 grams (1 teaspoonful) contains sufficient pancreatic enzymes to digest (in vitro): 260g fat, 388g protein, 460g starch.
Adult dogs: The average dose is 2-3 tablets with each meal.
Adult cats: 1/2-1 tablet with each meal.
Precautions: Discontinue use in animals with symptoms of sensitivity. See package insert for additional precautions
