Three Lucky Winners Receive Assure® Digestive Supplement!
Many health challenges for pets begin in the gastrointestinal system, specifically with the microorganisms and enzymes. So supplementing your dog’s digestion is a smart way to help his overall health and wellbeing. There are a few fundamental components of digestive support that can lead to a healthier, happier dog.
Either PREbiotics or PRObiotics – both of these work to support the naturally-occurring bacteria already present in your dog’s gut but they do so in different ways:
Probiotics are live microorganisms added to increase the number of bacteria. Because they are live they must be refrigerated or microencapsulated in order to remain viable. If the microorganisms are no longer live by the time they reach your dog’s bowl, they will not help his digestion.
Prebiotics increase the naturally-occurring bacterial population by providing food for them and enhancing their activity. Prebiotics are not live organisms so you don’t have to worry about whether or not they are still alive.
Digestive Enzymes – these allow your dog to absorb more nutrients from his food
Bromelain (protease) – to break down protein
Lipase – to break down fat
Amylase – to break down starch
Cellulase – to break down plant cell walls, or fiber
Carbohydrases – to break down carbohydrates (ex: alpha-galactosidase, beta-xylanase, and beta-glucanase).
ASSURE® is a specialized blend of prebiotics and enzymes designed to support optimal digestion, absorption of nutrients, and healthy immune function in your dog. Because large differences exist between the nutrient compositions of various dog foods, two versions of ASSURE are available. ASSURE for Puppy & Performance Diets is designed for dog foods that are high in protein (approximately 25% or more), contain little or no grains, and very little fiber. ASSURE for Adult & Weight Control Diets works best with dog foods having a more typical profile: Up to 25% protein, some cereal grains, and low to moderate in fiber.
