Lypex Pancreatic Enzyme Capsules for Dogs and Cats are a veterinary pancreatic supplement for the management of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, irritable bowel syndrome, brush border enzyme deficiencies and bile salt dificiencies.
Many dogs and cats suffer from exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and malabsorption syndromes resulting in weight loss, polyphagia and excessive faeces production.
In the case of pancreatic insufficiency long term enzyme supplementation and feeding of a highly digestible carbohydrate meal with low fat, high protein content is the only real management.
Most pancreatic preparations are available in a powder form and these enzymes are not protected from acid digestion.
Lypex is unique as the pancreatic enzymes are made into micro-pellets and each pallet is enteric-coated.
Lyprex gives 100% protection to the enzymes from the damaging stomach acids.
Within minutes of Lypex passing the stomach to alkaline environment of the small intestine the protective enteric coating dissolves and releases the protected enzymes to maximise digestion.
Each capsule contains (units of activity) protease 1200, Lipase 30000 and Amylase 18750.
Lypex administration: Dogs and Cats < 10 Kg 1 daily (half with each meal), Dogs >10 Kg 2 daily (one per meal).
