PROBIOTICS WITH DIGESTIVE ENZYMES FOR ALL GI ISSUES
GI problems are among the most common disorders of pets. Digestive enzymes are helpful to ensure proper digestion and absorption of nutrients necessary for maintaining health. The enzymes are useful for all pets, but especially those with conditions which may affect a normal GI tract. The pre- and probiotics support normal GI health and a properly functioning immune system. Use whenever common Gi disorders occur and whenever overall GI health maintenance is needed.
Plus Prebiotics & Probiotics
For use in dogs over the age of 6 weeks. Contains a source of live (or viable) naturally occurring microorganisms. Helps support diet change and a healthy digestive tract.
A source of:
• alpha-Amylase which can hydrolyze starch
• Protease which can hydrolyze proteins
• Cellulase which can break down cellulose
• Lipase which can hydrolyze triglycerides

(1) One SKB unit is defined as the amount of enzyme needed to form 10 mg of reducing sugars from 1% soluble starch solution at pH 5.0 and 40 °C in 30 minutes. (2) One FCC Lipase Unit (LU) is defined as that quantity of enzyme that will liberate the equivalent of one μmol of acid (H+) per minute from the substrate, under the conditions of the assay. The assay is based on a five-minute hydrolysis of an olive oil substrate at pH 6.5 and 30 °C. The fatty acids released on hydrolysis of the glycerol esters are determined by titration with sodium hydroxide. (3) One carboxymethyl cellulose unit (CMCU) is that amount of enzyme which liberates one micromole of reducing sugar (expressed as glucose equivalents) in one minute under the conditions of the assay. (4) The activity of bromelain is measured in the FCC PU; the assay of which is based on the hydrolysis of casein. This assay is based on a 60-minute proteolytic hydrolysis of a casein substrate at pH 6.0 and 40 °C. One PU (Papain Unit) is defined as that quantity of enzyme that liberates the equivalent of 1μg of tyrosine per hour under the conditions of the assay.
