For many dogs, their favorite time of day is meal time. As owners, we love the chance to reward them with treats. That is why it’s important to make sure our pets’ digestive system is always functioning at its best. Puritan’s Pride® Digestive Enzymes for Dogs is a flavorful soft chew that supports digestive health. As we all know, a healthy pup is a happy one.
What Are Digestive Enzymes
Digestive enzymes such as alpha-amylase, protease, and cellulase are designed for supporting your pooch’s digestive health and helps with food transitioning. Digestive enzymes are responsible for breaking down carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Our supplement also contains probiotics.
Why Your Dog Needs It
Lifestyle or dietary changes may require dogs to try new kibble that fits their needs. Digestive enzymes can be a great addition to help aid with food transitioning. Additionally, digestive enzymes and probiotics support a healthy digestive system and bowel health.

Contains a source of live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms.
(1) One SKB unit is defined as the amount of enzymes 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 papain is measured in the FCC PU; the assay of which is based on the hydrolysis of casein. This assay is based on 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 1 µg of tyrosine per hour under the conditions of the assay.
Contains a source of alpha-Amylase which can hydrolyze starch.
