Generic Pancrezyme Powder is used to treat dogs and cats with deficient exocrine pancreatic secretions. Uses enzyme replacement therapy to aid in the digestion of carbohydrate, protein and fat due to Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI).
Symptoms of EPI may include chronic diarrhea, weight loss despite a normal or increased appetite, frequent or greater amounts of stool and gas; and coprophagia.
With regular therapy, diarrhea will stop and the animal's weight and haircoat will return to normal.
EPI is most commonly caused when the pancreatic acinar cells fail to function properly causing insufficient digestion of starches, fats and proteins. This is called idiopathic pancreatic acinar atrophy (PAA).
The second most common cause is pancreatitis or chronic inflammation of the pancreas. If this is the cause, your pet may have diabetes.
