Thank you Jean and Jill for helping Pam out. I have been on vacation.

As far as the sensitivity to the enzymes - yes they can be quite sensitive to some - requiring wearing a surgical mask type of thing or gloves. I personally have EXTREME allergies but have been fortunate the enzymes have not bothered me. If it is unbearable, you could look into Creon instead of the powder enzymes but that is a whole other ball game.

I had a problem years ago when I started using the powder also. I called Pfizer institute they told me not to use it anymore. I was having problems pretty bad. So I bought and still use CREON 10,000 capsules . No more problem for me and none for my dog. I give her (2) 10,000 Creon capsules too 2 3/4 cups of dog food. I place the capsules in my had with a little water that I ran over them and she take it right up. It works for her all the time and I never have had a problem every again and it has been 9 years. You can get Creon 10,000 from Chemist Warehouse without a prescription. They are not very expensive. If I buy them locally they will cost me a lot of money every month.

I would try using (1) 10,000 capsule at first .... you will be able to tell from from how your dogs poop is will take a little while if you need more than try upping it

I hope this help solve your problem it did for me and my dog.
