74 thoughts on “Digestive Enzymes Powder with Prebiotics & Probiotics

  1. My little Yorkie has a very sensitive stomach, so I am always leery about trying new products. Not only has this product helped ease her digestive issues, but there is a marked difference in her stools. Her coat is shinier, too. Even though she is an extremely finicky eater, she eats her food with the enzymes added without hesitation. I highly recommend this product.

  2. I am a HUGE fan of your Digestive Enzymes + Probiotics, the powder type that come in tubs. I buy it off Amazon every time I run low, and always keep it on hand. It clears up diarrhea and tummy issues, in one day tops, and I supplement it daily for my dogs that switch kibbles often and eats raw daily. None of them have the runs ever, (unless they are truly sick). It has also kept my pup’s stools in tip top firmness throughout a round of antibiotics. The same type antibiotics that gave ME runs when I was put on them. This is a product that I recommend to EVERYONE that talks about their dogs’ tummy troubles, while others are suggesting rice and chicken or pumpkin, of which have never worked for me in severe cases of tummy issues or bouts of the runs. I wish your company made a product like this for humans! I was just recommending it to someone else today, and I figured I love this product so much, I’d leave you a note on how much NaturVet Digestive Enzymes + Probiotics is a part of my pooches’ health and vitality. smile emoticon

  3. My yorkie has a sensitive stomach. I’ve been mixing the pre & probiotic with some pumpkin and we have not had any issues since. She used to throw up a lot and her poop was not consistent. Since I’ve been feeding this she’s become regular and has not thrown up!

  4. Hi Alma! Thank you very much for sharing your story about your Yorkie! Stomach issues can be a real pain and sense of discomfort for any dog so we are so glad to hear how our digestive enzyme product has helped to make a big difference in your little girl!

  5. Hi Peter. If the food is at a temperature where your cat can eat it, you can mix the enzymes in. They just degrade at high heat. Please go to our website and sign up for NaturVet Special Offers and we will mail you out a coupon booklet with savings on our Naturvet products.

  6. Hi Barbara. Thank you for your product question and the Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics should be mixed in with the food.

  9. Why is the powder form based on amount of food yet the soft treat form is based off the weight of the dog?

  10. Hello. Thank you for your product question. The Digestive Enzymes in the powder form is a basic supplement. The soft chews have additional ingredients which change the way the product has to be administered for your pet to receive the proper amount of digestive enzymes, probiotic and prebiotics.

  11. 1. how many time should my 12 and 8 years age cat eat every day? 2. If i not sure how to confirm is 1/4 teaspoon, what can i do? 3. Do i need to put in refrigerator after opened? 4. can i mix it in water? thanks a lot.

  12. Hi Ada. The digestive enzymes help your cats digest their meals so it should be mixed in with their food each time they eat. You can use the 1/4 tsp. spoon from a baking set of measuring spoons. There is not need to refrigerate the product or to mix it with water. You can simply add it to their food. If you have any additional questions, please call the phone number on the container or email naturvet@naturvet.com. Thank you.

  13. Hi Monica. Thank you for your product question. Please store the enzymes in a cool pantry. There is no need to refrigerate.

  14. Hi, I’ve been using the enzymes with pre and pro biotics for about a year now. I got it from The Stock Shop. Now all I can find is enzymes with pro biotics only. What is the difference? Thanks

  15. Hi Joanni. Thank you for your product question. The digestive enzyme powder we purchase from an enzyme specialty company always contains the digestive enzymes, pre and probiotics. They are blended together and cannot be separated out. The confusion comes from dealing with entities like the FDA and the AAFCO feed regulation departments. They dictate what we can say and not say on our labels. This has been a back and forth issue with them for years. So even though prebiotics are not listed on the front of the label you will see it listed as FOS and it is always in the digestive enzyme mix. We are so sorry for the confusion and this is a very common question we address with customers.

  16. I have a 90 lb Rottweiler who eats twice a day. Do I give her two chews with each meal? Or 4?

  17. Hi Sandy. Thank you for your product question. You would feed your dog 4 chews with each meal.

  18. I just ordered this product online (Amazon). The UPC was intentionally covered up for some reason. When I peeled it off, it revealed: 797801036610. Net wt 8 oz. There was a separate label affixed to the lid: X001S7CHL5. The package label confuses me. The label on the container instructs a rounded 1/4 teaspoon per 1 C of wet/dry food, each meal. The original product listing bases the portion on the weight of the dog. What are the feeding instructions?

  19. Hello. Thank you for your product question. The correct feeding directions should be 1/4 tsp. per cup of food.

  20. My 18 year-old cat with CKD vomits frequently, almost on a daily basis, and has lost a lot of weight. I give him subcutaneous fluids daily. Would this product help? Is it suitable for long-term use?

  21. Hi Evie. Thank you for your product question. The Digestive Enzyme powder will help your kitty digest its food better. Plus it has pre and probiotics in it to help boost intestinal health. It is suited for long term use and has a 100% Money Back Guarantee.

  22. I was at the vet today. She told me to let the Digestive Enzymes sit in my dog’s food for 5 minutes before giving it to her. I don’t see any of that information on the label or website. Can you advise?

    Also, the jar says to give 1/4 teaspoon to each cup of dry food. But the tab (Feeding Directions) under the product on your webpage says,
    “For dogs and cats over the age of six weeks
    Feeding Directions: (Give with every meal)
    Up to 20 lbs. – 1/4 Teaspoon
    21 to 39 lbs. – 1/2 Teaspoon
    40 to 79 lbs. – 3/4 Teaspoon
    80 to 100 lbs. – 1 Teaspoon
    Over 100 lbs. – 1 1/4 Teaspoon”

    Can you clarify, please?

  23. Hi Christopher. Thank you for your product question. You do not have to let our product sit for five minutes before feeding. But you do need to mix it well into the food before feeding. Please follow the directions on the jar. And please don’t forget to sign up for the NaturVet Special offers on our website. We will mail you a special coupon booklet with instant savings on selected Naturvet products.

  24. I just purchased today a jar of NaturVet Digestive Enzymes for my cats who vomit routinely. The lot# is 2596-08, and it has “Best by 09/2018” – to me this may mean it has expired and may not be effective. Should I return it?

  25. Hi Mary. You are correct. The product has expired. Keep in mind we do stand by our 100% Money Back Guarantee, so please be sure to return your product to the company you purchased it from. If there are any issues with your return please let us know. You can contact our customer service team at 888-628-8783 Mon-Fri 8 am- 5 pm PST or via email at naturvet@naturvet.com and we will be happy to replace your product.

  26. Hi there, I give my cat raw food but he has loose stools with a little bit of mucus and fresh blood at the end. I’d like to know if your product can help. If so, how much should I give him. If he eats 39g of raw food, how much of your product should I give him, please? Thank you.

  27. Hello. Thank you for your product question. Blood in the stool can stem from serious conditions and we suggest you take your cat to your Veterinarian for a diagnosis before starting any supplement.

  28. I had already taken my cat to the veterinarian, a check-up was done and I was advised to put him on probiotics. I did, but there was only slight improvement – the stools were slightly firmer. There is only a tiny bit of blood at the end and it doesn’t happen on a daily basis. I’m wondering if digestive enzymes can help firm up his stools.

  29. I use the NaturVet Digestive Enzymes
    Pre & Probiotic. I can only get it in Florida. I live in Michigan during the summer. Return to Florida the first of December. I need to order this before I run out of current jar.

  30. Hi Barbara. Please visit our website for local stores in MI. from our store locator. You can so visit our online Dealers that carry NaturVet products. If you prefer not to order online, they all have toll free phone numbers where they would be happy to take your order direct.

  31. Hi Chan. Our Digestive Enzymes with pro and prebiotics will help your cat digest his food better, add beneficial flora to the gut and feed that flora to support a healthy digestive system. All NaturVet products come with a 100% Money Back Guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product.

  32. Question came up in pet store about digestive enzymes plus pre and probiotic. The question was should this product be refrigerated as most probiotics are? Thanks

  33. Hi Marian. Thank you for your product question. The Digestive Enzyme plus Pre & Probiotic products do not require refrigeration, but should be stored in a cool place such as a pantry.

  34. I have been a long time user for many years for my terrier with sensitive stomach. It works great as long as he doesn’t get into people food!
    I’ve been ordering on Amazon, the 4 oz jar. My most recent purchase was what I thought was 10 oz jar but it came in a foil Ziploc bag. The product is tan in color with “grit” in it! The guaranteed analysis is the same but for TWO TSP not 1/4 tsp. Also the ingredients list is similar but first two ingredients are calcium carbonate, which isn’t on the old ingredients list, and maltodextrin is the second ingredient, where it used to be last.
    Did you change your formula? Or did I get scammed,? The lot # is 2199-01 if it helps.
    Please let me know! I just went thru a monthlong transition to a new food for him. I don’t want to set him back or God forbid make him sick!

  35. Hi Julie. Thank you for your product question. The Digestive Enzyme product in the 10 oz. bag also contains chicken flavoring and ginger for the stomach. The addition of these two ingredients changes the color and texture and also the dosing. If you are unhappy with the product, please call our Customer Service Team, 888-628-8783, and they will send you a replacement product of the original Enzyme product your were using.

  36. My poodle/retriever mix has a sensitivity to chicken and has had a bout of Giardia. I switched to a lamb based food and treated the Giardia with vet’s prescriptions. I started her on your Plus product. I am not sure from the product label if I should supplement her food daily or stop giving it to her. Please advise if there is a reason I should not give it to her every day.

  37. Hi James. Thank you for your product question. The product is formulated to be fed with each meal. The “intermittent” statement on the label is a requirement from AAFCO feed regulation entity because they do not believe that the ingredients are necessary for an animals health on a dally basis, however, we believe differently.

  38. Hi Rachel. Thank you for your product question. The figures we post on the labels for each of these enzymes are what is given to us my the raw ingredient manufacture on the method they used on testing. We do not have the means to convert them to a common denominator USB.

  39. I have been giving your Digestive Enzymes Powder for just over a year to my two long haired cats. I initially started using it in an attempt to stop the occasional vomiting of undigested food, and also for my male kitty who has stomach issues. I’m always very nervous about feeding new supplements, since you never really know if they are safe to feed. I really wanted to leave a review because not only has this been safe to feed, but it has stopped the vomiting of undigested food for both my kitties, and has calmed my males stomach issues. To my surprise, there has been another really welcomed benefit to this supplement. Having long haired cats, I used to have to clean up vomited hairballs pretty frequently, especially during spring shedding. Since feeding your product, I am very very rarely having to clean up hairballs anymore. Thank you so much for this product, and please don’t change a thing about it!

  40. Hi Geri. Thank you very much for your wonderful comments on the Digestive Enzymes with Pre and Probiotics powder. We are so pleased that it has helped your cats with their digestive issues. And thank you for being a loyal NaturVet customer. Please sign up for NaturVet Special Offers from our website to receive your NaturVet Coupon booklet.

  41. Thank you for your product question. Please feed 1/4 tsp. per cup of food. If you feed your little doggy 1/2 cup of food, reduce the dosage to 1/8 tsp. per meal.

  42. Can I premix the Digestive enzymes into raw food that I’m going to freeze and thaw (without heat) or do I need to mix them into food immediately before giving it to my dog?

  43. Hi Shawna. Thank you for your product question. It is best to mix the product into the food just before feeding.

  44. Hello…these works fantastic for my thirteen year old female labrador – until evening. She is about 65 lbs and I give her three chewable tablets in the morning. In the evening, should I give her another three with her dinner meal? I break her meals up into four small portions per day…6 AM, noon, 6 PM and midnight. Should I just expect to do this for the rest of her days? I dont have an issue with doing that, I just want to make sure that it is safe. Thank you.

  45. Yes, give her another three with her dinner meal. The product is best utilized when given with the meal, or as close to meal times as possible.

  46. Hi, I might have overlooked this but I bought an 8 oz jar and trying to give it in small doses to my cat but he won’t eat his dry food with it mixed in. If I stop, he will eat. Any tips?

  47. Hi Rhonda. Thank you for your product question. Try the dosing of 1/4 tsp. per cup of food in some canned food. You can also pour a small amount of low sodium clam juice over his dry food and mix it in using the dosage above.

  48. Hi David. Thank you for your product question. This product was designed to help your cat digest it’s food better and add beneficial flora to the gut. If your cat is under the supervision of your Veterinarian for the kidney issues, we suggest you check in with them before feeding any new supplement to your cat.

  49. I see most digestive enzymes instructing to mix with water and food and let sit for 20 minutes. Is that how I use these also?

  50. Hi Lindsay. Thank you for your product question. You do mix it in with the food but you do not have to let it sit for 20 minutes before feeding.

  51. Naturvet digestive enzymes saved my dog’s life. When I got him at 11 weeks, he had constant diarrhea no matter what I did. Chicken and rice resulted in undigested rice! Vets didn’t have an answer. After about 4 months, my poor 60lb pup looked emaciated. Finally a nice lady at the pet store suggested probiotics and I was ready for anything. She showed me your product and said that it has digestive enzymes too but you really want the probiotics (hee hee). Within a day he had his first firm stool. If I fed him without treating with DE he has mucussy stools. After 2 weeks he gained 10lbs. My research indicates exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). Without having the biopsy my new vet agreed. In any case, I have an extremely healthy, happy and fit 85lb, seven year-old husky mix thanks to your product. He would have surely died without it. All food is treated with Naturvet DE+probiotics every day of his life and it works great. Works best letting the food digest in his bowl for 20 minutes. Thank you, thank you!

  52. Hi Kevin. Thank you for much for sharing your pup’s success story with our Digestive products. I am not sure that letting the food set in the bowl is necessary because Probiotics are live and are added to the enzyme powder in dry form. The spores are activated in the stomach (stomach acid and moisture both play a role) and germinate and reproduce in the intestine. The mechanisms of the digestive enzymes also occurs in the pets body.

  53. I feed my cat 6 small meals a day, if I give 1/4 tsp each meal, is it too much? My cat weight 11 lbs. And is it safe for cat’s with Chronic Kidney Disease? Thanks.

  54. Hi Jenny. Thank you for your product question. The dosing for your cat should be 1/4 tsp. of powder per cup of food. You can divide the product up to accommodate the amount of food you are feeding at each meal. While we do not know of any contraindications in feeding the Digestive Enzymes to animals with Chronic Kidney Disease, we would refer you to your veterinarian for approval.

  55. I am giving digestive enzymes to my cat, and just found out I have gave much more than the correct dosage.

    It should be 1/4 tsp for a cup of food, but I was giving 1/4 every meal for 2 days. And i give 6 small meals a day, will it be harmful for too much digestive enzymes ?

  56. Hi Jenny. Thank you for your product question. Adding the additional product to your cat’s meals is not harmful but is not more beneficial. You are unnecessarily using more product then necessary.

  57. I see this on your site and container I’ve purchased:

    “This product is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.”

    So should I NOT feed it in my dogs food on an ongoing basis?

  58. Hi Heide. Thank you for your product question. We are an FDA audited facility and under the guidance of the American Association of Feed Controls. We are bound by their labeling guidelines and neither of these entities believes that digestive enzymes are necessary for pets on a daily basis. We believe the opposite. The heat processing of popular dry or canned commercial pet food destroys nearly all the naturally occurring enzymes. The body will then draw these necessary enzymes from the small reserves of other organs which, after time, can lead to debilitating conditions. Digestive enzymes assist in the breakdown of food enabling nutrients, essential for all cellular functions, to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Also, undigested commercial pet food in the stomach builds up toxins that can weaken and may leave the body open to disease.

  59. Hi Jewel. The product in the jars does not contain any flavoring. The product in the bag, the tablets and soft chews contains chillsonated chicken liver.

  60. Hi. My 15 lbs shi-poo was recently diagnosed w/pancreatitis. She is currently on a low fat wet food diet – 1/3 of a 14 oz can 3X a day. I purchased the Naturvet enzymes w/pre & probiotics, and have been adding about 1/8 tsp per feeding for almost a wk now. While her first stools after each feeding are definitely more solid, the couple after the first are still quite runny. Should I increase or decrease the amt of enzymes I’m adding to her food? Many thx!

  61. Hi Evangeline. Thank you for your product question. Our digestive enzyme/probiotic products are not meant to take the place of the medicine prescribed by your veterinarian for pancreatitis. Our Advanced Probiotic product is a great maintenance product once your dog has fully recovered from it’s pancreatitis.

  62. Hi, how long will the powder last if my dog is 22 pounds? can it last for 2 months? or only 1 month like the chews? (I can’t decide which one to buy)

  63. Hi Anne. Thank you for your product question. The powder has an 18 month shelf life and for your 22 pound dog, I would suggest purchasing the 4 oz. powder as it will service around 114 cups of food.

  64. We rescued a 9 year old cat in Nov. 2018. He has lots of undigested food vomiting issues and is now on 2 VET prescription dry kibble whichever her prefers (Hills – Skin/Food Sensitivities & Royal Canin – Anallergenic) he won’t eat wet food. Also does not have a regular daily bowel movement very,very often… Does not carry much weight either, would like him to carry a lb. or two more. Can I put a 1/4 teaspoon of Digestive Enzyme Prebiotics & Probiotics mixed in with his kibble daily??? Will it help him, keep some of his food down??? PLEASE e-mail
