EnzymeDiane 6x 69 153
Other 44 2
Pancrezyme 86 33
Viokase 65 17
PanaKare Plus 29 9
Pancrex V 18 6
EPI Pro8 0 8

When the enzymes were implemented.... was there an odor???

YES = 254

No   = 158 

 

What is the approximate amount of enzymes given per cup of food?

Less than 1/2 teaspoon = 40
1/2 teaspoon   = 110
1 teaspoon = 212
2 teaspoons = 19
1-3 tablets = 28
3+ tablets = 1
7/+ tablets = 1
3 ounces Raw Pancreas = 1

 

What is encouraging about these numbers is that in this market sampling... at least 36% were able to reduce the amount of enzymes needed to adequately maintain their dog's EPI condition consequently also helps with the expense of the enzymes
