Did you know pets over the age of 5 are considered seniors? Because our senior dogs and cats are unable to make the digestive enzymes necessary to absorb and digest critical nutrients, it is essential to supplement their diets with a high-quality digestive enzyme product. Here are 3 big things to look for when selecting a digestive aid product for your senior fur-baby.
Key Plant-Based Enzymes
Look for a supplement with key plant-based enzymes such as protease, amylase, cellulase, and lipase.
- Protease is a plant-based digestive enzyme that allows healthy proteins to be absorbed into the body.
- Amylase is a plant-based digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates and starches to all absorption into the body.
- Cellulase is a plant-based digestive enzyme that allows the absorption of dietary fiber.
- Lipase is a plant-based digestive enzyme that breaks down healthy fatty acids for easy absorption.
Make sure that your supplement does not have fillers such as lactose, rice hulls, or animal digest, which may cause digestive issues.
NASC Quality Seal
If the supplement has the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) benchmark of quality seal, you can feel good about the quality that has gone into the product.
