55 Pancreatitis/EPI
Verified Purchase

By on 7 September 2018

A year ago Fearn was diagnosed with pancreatitis/EPI, and was recommended by the vet to add a pancreatic enzyme to her food. Since the start of the treatment she is slowly putting back the weight loss she suffered before the diagnosis. Fearn had allways been at around the 5kg weight, but then lost 2.8kg in les than a month. After various tests including an ultrasound It was thought that she had Lymphoma and an exploratory opp would be required. But on the day before the surgery, further blood test results suggested that EPI was the cause.
This product is keeping her alive and healthy.
I thoroughly recommend this product.
But would shop around for prices.

55 from starvation to health
Verified Purchase

By on 24 June 2018

viovets pancreatic enzyme is a miracle worker at least for my beautiful white shepherd "Nymeria, as it has saved her life and made her healthy and happy again. Your probably saying "ya", but believe me 3 years ago my vet gave us the option of putting her down or putting her on a very expensive tablet or powder with her food so she would get the nourishment she needed from the food. Needless to say we went with the latter option (as my wife probably would have got rid of me first). The tablets didn't really work as she was still getting bad bouts of diarrhea, and still losing weight. So we put her on the powder formula which here in Ireland very very expensive. (€100 euros for 100 grams) , The powder worked but i knew that we could not keep up this expense unless we won the lotto. So i started researching the internet and came across VioVet, and the name struck a chord a fried of mine from Manchester had mentioned viovet to me. So i tuck a chance and ordered their product 250g for €59.00 euro delivered to my door ,"EUREKA" at that price and wow how it has worked, Nymeria just had her 5th birthday and when we walk the amount of people who stop and ask about her as she is so beautiful and healthy now is astounding. So Viovet thank you from Nymeria my wife and I, for supplying such a great product at such an affordable price(please don't put the price up). The formula you use is top rate and believe me folks i have tried others but the severe condition Nymeria my shepherd has is such that not all pancreatic powders or tablets work but viovets does. By the way i do not work or I am not affiliated to anyone who works for Viovet, so QUALITY PRODUCT AT A VERY AFFORDABLE PRICE, THANKYOU VIOVET.

55 For EPI dogs if you have one
Verified Purchase

By on 26 April 2018

This product helps keep my dog alive by helping to digest her food for her. Being EPI she cannot do this herself. Without the powder she would starve to death eventually.
so can only recommend to dog owners with the same problem

45 Does what it should. Mix it in with our dogs food to ensure she then gets the nutrients out of her food.

Enzymes

Andrea Golden

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Lancashire, United Kingdom

Hi my pug is on a hydrolysed diet and she has SID high foliate. She isn't digesting her food as she should . Would the use of enzymes help ? Would the protein from them affect her allergies to food ?

  • VioVet Staff

Digestive enzyme supplementation is believed sometimes to help with a variety of digestive problems, but it is particularly beneficial only to animals diagnosed with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI). There are a variety of tests for this condition as well as the clinical signs and usually a diagnosis is not too difficult to make. I would only recommend giving this product if your dog has been diagnosed with EPI. However it is unlikely to cause any trouble for your dog even if EPI has not been diagnosed and an allergy to the enzymes themselves is extremely unlikely.

Any bad influence on blood glucose in diabetes dog?

Sung Hyuk Lee

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: , Korea, Republic of

My dog is 12 years old and recently diagnosed as diabetes about 3 months ago. We are feeding various vegetables, proteins, and some grains as well for her meal right after insulin shot. She had used to have dog foods only before the diabetes diagnose.
Since we are seeing her having some difficulties in digestion of her meal, we are thinking of giving your product (Pancrex) to help her digestion.
My question would be whether the Pancrex feeding may cause some increase in her blood clucose level of my dog in this particular situation.
Please advise us.

Thank you for your help in advance.

  • VioVet Staff

Changing anything with your dogs food can theoretically affect blood glucose levels and hence the insulin requirement. If your dog has trouble digesting the food, then Pancrex should be a help, but it would be best to talk to your own vet about this first. There are tests to can suggest (or sometimes show for certain) if Pancrex is needed. Choosing a good diet and sticking to it is also a help, as the digestion gets used to the food and digests it better in time.

Pancrex tablets - what dose to use?

Abbie Farnham

What is the dose of Pancrex Tablets to use for my 39kg dog?

  • VioVet Staff

There is no fixed dose for this Pancrex tablets. It is intended to replace deficient enzymes produced by your own dog's pancreas. Every dog with this sort of problem will have it to a varying extent. Your dog might produce 10% fewer enzymes, or 90% fewer enzymes, so the amount of supplement needed cannot be predicted.

Essentially you pick a middle sort of dose, then increase of decrease according to effect. There is no problem with even a very large overdose. If you give too little, the food will not be digested well (so the faeces are greasy looking and your dog loses weight).

For your dog I would start with 6 or 8 tablets per day, added to food. Then after a few days you can increase or decrease this.

Pancrex products for pancreatic insufficiency

Sarah Winmore

Hello thank you for all of your previous advice. I have now ordered the Pancrex v tablets - could you please tell me the difference in between the capsules and tablets also the powder, my dog is 25kg although he is now gaining weight as long as he is on three small meals a day. Please could you advise if I should give him one tablet with each meal or would this be too much or maybe one tablet with one meal and half tablet with others. I hope you can help me.

  • VioVet Staff

The different Pancrex products all contain the same ingredients. The more expensive forms tend to contain more of the active ingredients relative to cost, so you get what you pay for. I would start off with one tablet per meal, and see how things go. If this results in him digesting his food well and keeping a good bodyweight, then that is what you would want to see. It might then be possible to reduce the dose, to say half a tablet for some or all meals, but you can only find out be testing it out. Every dog is different and there is no fixed dose that is needed for any of these products. Some dogs might need an even larger dose in time, if their own pancreas stops producing any digestive enzymes at all. Mostly the pancreas continues to work to some extent, but it just needs a bit of help. You will build up a picture over time as to what is needed for your dog, and that is the best way to approach it. 25kg is quite a large dog and he might need more in future.
