What is Viokase-V?
Viokase-V is a prescription medication used as a digestive aid for the treatment of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (maldigestion syndrome), a condition where a pet cannot make a sufficient amount of pancreatic enzymes to digest food properly.

Who is it for?
Viokase-V is FDA-approved for use in dogs and cats.

What are the benefits?

* Helps replace the pancreatic enzymes needed to digest and absorb proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
* Safely treat acute or chronic pancreatitis in dogs and cats
* Easy to dose - mix into food and serve!

How does Viokase-V work?
Pancreatic enzymes are a collection of secretions from the pancreas that are given to animals whose pancreas has stopped functioning. They are necessary to digest fat, protein, and sugars. Treatment will be needed for the life of the pet.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
No generic products are available.

How is it given?
In most cases, your veterinarian's recommendations will be to mix the powdered form of the enzymes with the food. If feeding dry food, moisten the food with warm water and then add the enzymes. Be sure to allow the enzymes time to work; usually the food and enzyme mixture is allowed to stand 15-20 minutes before feeding. If using the tablet form, administer the tablet before the meal.

Feeding several small meals a day is usually recommended. If you have any questions regarding how to use this medication, contact your veterinarian.

Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
The animal's digestion will improve immediately, though it may take some time for the animal's weight, stools, haircoat, etc. to return to normal. In most cases, Viokase-V is given for the life of the animal.

What form(s) does it come in?
Viokase-V comes as a powder.
