PURPOSE:

PANCREZYME® Powder is an enzymatic concentrate derived from whole raw porcine pancreas for use in cats and dogs as a digestive aid in enzyme replacement where digestion of carbohydrates, protein, and fat is inadequate. Contains standardized amylase, protease and lipase activities plus esterases, peptidases, nucleases and elastase.

aContains a source of amylase which can hydrolyze starch. 1 USP Unit decomposes starch at an initial rate such that 0.16 µEq of glycosidic linkage is hydrolyzed under standard conditions of the assay.

bContains a source of protease which can hydrolyze proteins. 1 USP Unit hydrolyzes casein at an initial rate such that there is liberated per minute an amount of peptides not precipitated by trichloroacetic acid that gives the same absorbance at 280 nm as 15 nmol of tyrosine.

cContains a source of lipase which can hydrolyze triglycerides. 1 USP Unit liberates 1.0 µEq of acid per minute at a pH of 9.0 and 37°C.

FEEDING DIRECTIONS:

Use only as directed by your veterinarian. Mix PANCREZYME Powder with moistened food at each meal as directed below. Allow mixture to stand for 15-20 minutes at room temperature before feeding to enhance digestion.

For adult dogs: Mix 3/4 - 1 teaspoonful with food.

For adult cats: Mix 1/4 - 3/4 teaspoonful with food.

Each teaspoon (2.8g) of PANCREZYME Powder contains sufficient pancreatic enzymes to digest (in vitro): 260g fat, 388g protein, 460g starch.

Quantity may be adjusted as directed by your veterinarian.
