Question by Zzzzz: Has anyone had a dog w/ digestion enzym problems?
My dog is not digesting his food the vet tells us. We are going to get a test done to check and see if he is missing digestion enzymes. But I want to know if there is any homeopathic way to treat this instead of buying the enzyme powder the vet will sell us.
Foods to try or natural supplements to give him.
Answer by Anama
enzyme powder is natural. It is simply replacing what his body does not produce.
Is there any possibility that it is gastric dumping, allergies or intolerances instead or in addition to?
If you are thinking of trying the sprouts route, you need to be aware of what enzyme your pup is not producing and what would be the best source of that enzyme.
Please try to avoid wheat,rye and barley grasses as gluten is a big allergen. If you can find a holistic vet I think that would help a lot. You can also try probiotics in case your pup has colitis or something else going on. I have had the best luck with Stoney Field Banilla. It is also certified gluten free so if your pup has intolerance issues, then you are safe from triggering another issue. Hope this helps.
