No one knows definitively WHY dogs will eat grass from time to time, but it could be an instinctual behavior caused by certain nutrients your dog is missing. When enzymes are added to meals, more nutrients from the food itself are absorbed into the body and the grass eating usually stops. As a matter of fact, the “unlocking” power of enzymes allows all food and supplements to be better assimilated. For fat supplements especially, enzymes provide a doubling effect, increasing effectiveness by breaking down the large molecules into smaller parts that the digestive system can uptake.
Since 1990, All The Best Pet Care has been producing the finest digestive enzyme blends for pets found anywhere. Our proprietary formulations are targeted, concentrated powders that begin working in the stomach, just like enzymes in raw food. They require only a small dosage that is easy to mix into moist food or put into a capsule for pilling. Enzymes should be given any time cooked or processed food is served to replace the natural food enzymes destroyed by heat.
As animals age their ability to produce their own bodily enzymes declines, and disease sets in. We have seen almost miraculous transformations after enzyme supplementation begins, including relief from itchiness, allergies, flea infestation, weepy eyes and ears, dry flaking skin, rashes, hair loss and hot spots. By improving nutrient absorption, the immune system has the tools it needs to heal itself.
Try one of our three formulas:
Enzymes Plus, our most popular formula, contains a complete spectrum of digestive enzymes plus kelp extract, bioflavinoids, and two natural forms of Vitamin C, rose hips and acerola. The kelp provides the trace minerals that are the “sparkplugs” for many biological processes, and Vitamin C contributes vital immune support.
Good Digestion combines digestive enzymes with probiotic cultures, fructooliosaccharides (FOS), and alfalfa, barley and wheat grass to address the very common problem in dogs and cats of poor digestion, gas and loose stools, whether they’re the result of antibiotic therapy, poor diet, or inherited digestive weakness. Good Digestion repopulates the intestinal tract with beneficial bacteria, which in turn help to break down and assimilate the nutrients in food. Good Digestion is a must after a course of antibiotic treatment.
Enzymes pH contains not only digestive enzymes, but also cranberry extract and two natural urinary acidifiers, DL-methionine (an amino acid found in meat and dairy products) and sodium ascorbate (a form of Vitamin C.) These ingredients help alleviate urinary blockages that are rampant in cats. Cranberry prevents any bacteria in the urinary tract from adhering to cell walls and causing infection. An acidic urine causes excess minerals excreted through the kidneys to remain in solution instead of forming struvite crystals that irritate and clog delicate urethral tissue. Although Enzymes pH is intended primarily for cats, it can be useful for dogs with struvite crystals. Check with your vet.
