A healthy gut lining and proper essential nutrients are the foundation for overall wellness for your pets.

Prevention is better than cure!

It’s important to act on this information and ensure that your pet’s gut health (and your own) is looked after so that you can have healthy and thriving pets

To recap: Enzymes serve as catalysts that facilitate the breakdown of food molecules into forms readily absorbed and utilized by the body. Pets, like humans, rely on enzymes for proper digestion and nutrient absorption. Enzymes produced within the body, as well as those obtained from raw foods, play vital roles in ensuring efficient digestion.

As we already know, our modern diets consist of heavily processed foods that lack the natural enzymes found in species appropriate diets. This deficiency places a strain on the pets’ digestive system, leading to issues like vomiting, diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and malabsorption of nutrients.

Below is the case study of Cookie, a male 4 year old dachshund who suffered from chronic IBD. Cookie had been diagnosed at a board-certified referral center with inflammatory bowel disease. The few treatments that they offered provided no relief. Cookie would have 1-2 days a week where he quit eating, had a noisy grumbly tummy and diarrhea. This pattern had gone on for four years before I had the opportunity to become involved.

I did a thorough workup on Cookie and made lifestyle changes which included changing to a species-appropriate balanced raw food diet including digestive enzymes, natural probiotic Kefir, Vibration therapy, Rectal Ozone Therapy and Fecal Matter Transplantation.

Cookie’s story is a great reminder of how diet and lifestyle changes can make an incredible impact in improved quality of life.

In conclusion, enzymes are catalysts driving the digestion process, vital for breaking down complex food molecules for absorption and utilization. Understanding their role and adopting strategies to support their activity optimizes digestive health and overall well-being.

Stay tuned for Part 3 in next week’s newsletter where I will conclude the series with practical tips for optimizing your pet’s digestion and maintaining gut health.

4 days into his treatment he had a normal bowel movement!!!

Remember, a healthy gut lining and proper essential nutrients are the foundation for overall wellness for your pets.

By implementing these tips and prioritizing your pet’s digestive health, you can help ensure they lead a happy, healthy and long life.
