What is Epizyme?
Epizyme is a supplemental powder form of pancreatic enzymes for use in pets with pancreatic enzyme deficiency (maldigestion syndrome, pancreatic insufficiency syndrome). Epizyme is a combination of lipases, amylases, and proteases, which are enzymes needed for digestion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

Who is it for?
Dogs and cats

What are the benefits?

* Helps improves digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and fats in animals with pancreatic insufficiency
* Easy to administer at meal time
* Helps return pets to a healthy weight, since weight loss is common when the pancreas isn't functioning properly

How does Epizyme work?
Epizyme is used as a replacement therapy substituting enzymes normally produced by the pancreas that are needed to help digest and absorb fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. In pancreatic insufficiency, these enzymes are not produced in sufficient quantity.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Pancrezyme® (Brand), Viokase (Brand)

How is it given?
Mix the powdered enzymes into your pet's 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.

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, Epizyme needs to be given for the life of the animal.

What form(s) does it come in?
