Why so Many Dogs and Cats Have Digestive Issues

Bad breath, foul-smelling poop, bloating, gas, diarrhea and vomiting, as well as food sensitivities, lack of energy and joint issues can all be signs of this common problem. The good news is, there's an easy, fast-acting fix if you know what to look for.

  • Enzymes are tiny protein molecules found in every living cell; the two main types of enzymes most important to your pet's well-being are metabolic and digestive enzymes produced by their own bodies. There are also enzymes found in live, fresh foods
  • Raw, fresh food contains enzymes; however, enzymes are fragile and easily destroyed by heat; pesticides and herbicides; food preservatives, additives, artificial colorings, and flavor enhancers; and other influences
  • Ultraprocessed pet foods lack healthy natural enzymes; production of both canned food and kibble requires very high temperatures that destroy any live enzymes present in the food
  • Symptoms of digestive enzyme deficiency in dogs and cats include a variety of digestion-related issues, along with food sensitivities, lack of energy, and compromised joint health
  • The best way to boost your pet’s digestive enzyme supply is to feed as much living, raw food as possible, along with supplemental enzymes, if needed
