|Pancrezyme® contains digestive enzymes which help digest and absorb foods. It is used to treat symptoms of pancreatitis or it may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your veterinarian.|
Pancreatitis is an important disease in the dog. Disease of the pancreas has been classified into 4 distinctive categories; acute necrotic pancreatitis; subacute or chronic pancreatitis; pancreatic fibrosis; and collapse or atrophy of the acinar pancreatic tissue.
Pancrezyme contains a pancreatic enzyme concentrate derived from whole raw porcine pancreas. Effectively aids digestion of protein, carbohydrates, and fats by providing amylase, protease, and lipase activities, plus esterases, peptidases, nucleases, and elastase to compensate for pancreatic insufficiency.
Each 2.8 grams (1 teaspoonful) of powder contains:
Lipase 71,400 USP units
Protease 388,000 USP units
Amylase 460,000 USP units
Dosage and Administration: PANCREZYME Tablets are administered before each meal; PANCREZYME Powder is added to moistened dog food. Thorough mixing is necessary to bring the

times daily, is important.|
