- Veterinarian Recommended Digestive Enzyme Supplement for Dogs
K9 Digestive Enzymes maintains optimal digestive conditions in the stomach, improves digestion and supports normal bowel function. An adequate level of stomach acid, technically known as hydrochloric acid (HCL), is essential for proper functioning of the digestive system. It activates digestive enzymes that break down food into small proteins for absorption. Low stomach acid can contribute to stomach aches, poor digestion, burping and bad breath. Normal levels of stomach acid help to keep the digestive system free of bacteria, yeast and parasites. With low acidity and the presence of undigested food, bacteria are more likely to colonize the stomach or small intestine and interfere with the digestion and absorption of protein, fat and carbohydrates. This can affect your pet's teeth and breath as well. K9
Digestive Enzymes with HCL for dogs and added pancreatin enzyme for dogs makes it easier for your pet to digest and absorb nutrients from food, especially protein. This helps to relieve symptoms associated with poor digestion. One key ingredient in the formula is Betaine HCL, which aids in the breakdown and digestion of protein. This is especially important for older dogs, as the production of HCL declines with age.
- Improves Digestion & Absorption Of Fats And Protein
K9 Digestive Enzymes supplement contains the best digestive enzymes for dogs along with pancreatin, ox bile extract and HCL, nutrients derived from animals that aid in the breakdown and absorption of fats and protein. Gas, burping, bloating and indigestion are often due to the poor breakdown of protein and fats in the GI tract. K9 Digestive Enzymes helps to alleviate inflammation in the GI tract that arises from eating fatty, high-protein foods as well as allergy-inducing foods. For kidney and liver disease, the pancreatic dog digestive enzymes and HCL assist in the breakdown of protein particles, placing less of a load on the kidneys and liver. K9 Digestive Enzymes is a trusted pancreatic enzyme supplement for dogs that is much more effective than generic pet enzyme products you might purchase at a pet store. The powerful combination of digestive enzymes plus HCL, pancreatin and ox bile work together for maximum effectiveness.
- Promotes Healthy Saliva To Reduce Tartar Buildup
A common myth that simply giving pets hard, crunchy food to prevent dental problems has not proved true in veterinary research. It is the quality of ingredients and your pet’s ability to digest them that will reduce tartar and tooth decay. Saliva is a core part of tartar accumulation, and acidic saliva (due to digestive upset and acid stomach) can result in acid erosion of the teeth. K9 Digestive Enzymes contains HCL and pancreatin along with other enzymes to help improve digestion and promote healthy saliva, reducing tartar buildup.
K9 Digestive Enzymes Can Benefit:
- Dogs With Liver and/or Kidney Disease This all-natural, veterinarian-approved supplement provides support for dogs, enabling them to more efficiently break down, digest and metabolize protein. The pancreatic enzymes and HCL assist in the breakdown of protein particles, placing less of a load on the kidneys and liver. Our K9 enzymes are designed to improve your pet's digestion (especially digesting fats), enhance liver values and reduce indigestion.
- Dogs With Malabsorption, Weight Loss Due to Digestive Problems When a pet is unable to produce sufficient pancreatic enzymes, the digestion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins and the resulting malabsorption of nutrients often causes weight loss and digestive discomfort. Gas, burping, bloating and indigestion are often due to the poor breakdown of protein and fats in the GI tract. For best results, use with Power Probiotic and Soothing Digestive Relief.
- Dogs With Protein-Losing Enteropathy (PLE) Protein-losing enteropathy (PLE) is not a specific disease, but a group of diseases that cause the loss of proteins from the bloodstream into the gastrointestinal tract. Digestive diseases, malabsorption, heart disease and lymphatic disease can all cause PLE. Common signs of PLE are diarrhea, vomiting, difficulty maintaining weight and fluid in the abdomen. Certain breeds are predisposed to protein-losing enteropathy: Yorkshire terrier, soft-coated wheaten terriers, basenjis and Norwegian lundehunds. The powerful enzymes, pancreatin and HCL in K9 Digestive Enzymes are needed to help break down and absorb protein and fats.
- Senior Dogs As your dog ages, the natural production of HCL decreases, and this can lead to digestive problems such as diarrhea, gas, burping and upset tummy. K9 Digestive Enzymes can help by enhancing the absorption of nutrients and aiding in the breakdown of protein and fats.
- Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) in Dogs EPI in dogs occurs more commonly in certain breeds such as German shepherds, chows and Cavalier King Charles spaniels, but it can be diagnosed in any breed of dog. Symptoms of canine exocrine pancreatic insufficiency include weight loss, diarrhea, gas and indigestion. Dogs with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency often have a normal appetite but then become sick and listless after eating. These dogs may also develop pancreatitis and IBS, so pet owners need to be especially careful to feed their dog the best diet for EPI. Commonly prescribed veterinary dietary ingredients that help other dogs with digestive problems (e.g., pumpkin or chicken and rice) can make dogs EPI symptoms worse because, for example, fiber can interfere with absorption. The most important treatment for pancreatic insufficiency in dogs is to give the dog a comprehensive animal-based
digestive enzyme EPI dog supplement that replaces the enzymes the dog is lacking (enzymes that would normally be created by the dog's pancreas). The pancreatic enzymes contained in K9 Digestive Enzymes, along with a hypoallergenic diet, can dramatically improve your dog's absorption of nutrients, improving coat quality, symptoms of EPI and overall health.
2 year old Husky Bleu was turned in to a high kill shelter in Lancaster because he had diarrhea and a sensitive stomach. In the top photo, you can see how thin he was along with his dry coat. Bleu was adopted by a loving family and given a new leash on life. But he would have bouts of diarrhea followed by inappetance, hunching over in pain and acting very quiet. Bleu was suffering from Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, a condition where the dog is unable to produce enough pancreatic enzymes needed to digest and properly absorb nutrients such as fats and protein. Bleu was given K9 Digestive Enzymes which immediately firmed up his stool and helped him gain weight. Power Probiotic, Soothing Digestive Relief and Gastro ULC dramatically reduced the symptoms of stomach gurgling, hunching over, belching and diarrhea.

"Since I started him on your trio of digestive aids (Probiotics, Enzymes, Gastro ULC) three months ago, he has not had a single vomiting episode, and now he eats his breakfast in the AM with gusto. No more gurgling stomach/grass-eating episodes and no more loud mouth smacking at night. I'm going to keep him on this supplement regime for a few more months and then see if I can cut back to once a day. Thanks so much Ask Ariel."
"Just a bit of history, we got our Chorkie when she was about 9 weeks old. We truly believe she was the runt or just didn't get enough milk from her mother. She was not in good shape. She is 2 years old now. Since we got her until now she's had different health issues but the allergies have been the worst. We've spent thousands on vet visits, medications, natural treatments, etc. to no avail. Well, not until I found Ask Ariel while doing a Google search. I ordered some of the recommended supplements for allergies and gut issues. I have to say I was skeptical at first, but I am happy to report our Chorkie, Chocolate Chips, has improved significantly! I am so thankful that I found Ask Ariel."

"Telly was diagnosed with reflux after many horrible months of not knowing what was happening with her. I heard about Ask Ariel products on a reflux page on Facebook. We are so thankful we did. We use Soothing Digestive Relief and their K9 Digestive Enzymes and they have made such a difference for her!! I have added a few other of their products to her regimen and see a huge difference!"

Sangria and Flirt
"This is Sangria (13.5) and Flirt (5), enjoying their Howl-o-ween! Sangria takes the Pancreatitis and Liver Support Kit. She has suffered from pancreatitis problems, malnutrition and IBD. These supplements have helped her so much, even the vets can't believe how well she is doing now! Flirt also takes some of the supplements such as the K9 Digestive Enzymes and is in the best of health....Thanks Ask Ariel!!"
"My sweet, beautiful Rudley has had tummy issues since he was a puppy. With Ask Ariel's help, we put him on a raw diet and have used their supplements…
Amazing Omegas and Power Probiotics all these years. He will soon be eleven years old and he’s been very healthy.
Recently, he started getting us up in the night to go outside and wanted to eat grass or bushes! He was agitated and couldn’t seem to get comfortable. After lab work and vet visits that showed he was healthy, I decided it was time for him to go back on Ask Ariel’s digestive protocol. I had to assume that he was having acid reflux in the night. After only three days on K9 Digestive and Gastro ULC, Rudley was sleeping through the night again and back to his happy self! We also added the Brain Booster since he is a senior citizen!
Thank you Susan and Ask Ariel for always being there for us. I’m convinced that your supplements (and diet suggestions) have kept Rudley from ever having an ear or skin infection."
"I am a proud fur mama to Lucy, our 4 year old American Bulldane furbaby. We use the Ask Ariel K9 Digestive Enzymes and LypoZyme for her. We feed her a commercial raw diet. We get titer tests and don’t over vaccinate. We don’t use any toxic monthly poisons for heartworm or fleas/ticks. She drinks only filtered water (Zero Water filtered)...We pray we have many many more years with her!"
Sherri D., Ohio
"This is Odis. We adopted him when he was two and shortly after discovered he had some digestive issues. At one point the vet had put him on famotidine and didn't really have a plan on when to take him off. He was still struggling with acid reflux flare ups. I had read a review someone had left on a website about Ask Ariel as their dog was having the same symptoms. I contacted customer service and they were so helpful with suggestions on what to do. The nutritionist recommended a diet change and supplements (Power Probiotic, K9 Digestive Enzymes, Gastro ULC) and it has changed our world. He loves eating his food now and doesn't mind having the supplements mixed in his food. He's so much calmer and hasn't had to take any famotidine in a month since we started! So grateful for the care that was shown to both my dog and myself!"
"My beautiful Lobella was a rescue from Husky Haven of LA; they saved her from a high kill shelter on her last day...Lobella's digestion has been thriving thanks to Ask Ariel's K9 Digestive Enzymes and Power Probiotics. We had a scare with a pre-cancerous polyp, but since that has been removed, plus changing her food, and adding the supplements – her digestion has been amazing! No more gas, or bloody or messy poop. Might be TMI, but I don't think she'll mind us sharing that she feels great!"

Supplements that have helped Marcie include: Amazing Omegas for Pets, Resveratrol For Dogs, AllerEaze, K9 Digestive Enzymes, and Immune Harmony.
“My precious Boston Terrier, Marcie had 3 mast cell tumors removed at age 7. One of the tumors had become a grade 2. After reading the pathology report and various other articles, I was terrified of what might happen. She's my baby and I will do anything I can to give her the best and all she needs. I ordered several products from the AskAriel.com website which I have been using for several years now. Other than a couple of changes in protein sources, which is necessary with dogs with serious allergies, my baby is amazing. Everybody that meets her is in awe of her beauty and comment on the glow of her coat which I attribute to
Amazing Omegas. They cannot believe that she is nine years old and has puppy energy!
I thank God each day He gives me to love her. Marcie's recent bloodwork results were awesome. I know it would not be possible without Susan's help. I highly recommend her expertise and products."
“I want to let you know how great Dakota, our Golden Retriever that we rescued, is doing. When we got him, he had bad ear infections that he had for months, and his skin was so black in the armpit and groin areas that we thought it was ground in dirt. He also had acid reflux and would bring up bile several times a day. It has taken several months, but the blackened skin (from yeast) is almost back to normal thanks to K9 Yeast Defense. I wish we had taken “before” pictures of his skin because the difference is remarkable. And, for his acid reflux, we started using your supplements (Power Probiotic, K9 Digestive Enzymes, Gastro ULC and Soothing Digestive Relief). We used to give him Pepcid, but we have been able to slowly wean him off. I can’t forget to mention using your food recommendations. His ears didn’t start to clear up until we got him eating food that he could tolerate. Thank you so much for your supplements and all your help. Dakota is a much happier dog thanks to you!"

“Right now all of our pets are doing really well. They're happy and full of energy with shiny coats which I totally attribute to your nutrition guidance - good foods and supplements. I'm attaching a picture we took on the Fourth of July. We call them "The Three Amigos" because they all get along so beautifully. It was one of those rare moments when they were all being very obedient and cooperating with the camera!
My dogs use several of your products: Kayla (Belgium shepherd-3 yrs old) has a sensitive stomach so I give her K9 Digestive Enzymes and Power Probiotics. Ben (Golden retriever-10 yrs old) has a bad hip from an accident when he was a puppy so he takes Amazing ArthoSoothe and Curcumin Complex. Molly (Schnauzer-12 yrs old) has skin issues so she gets Power Probiotic and K9 Yeast Defense. They also all take Onco-X every day as a cancer preventative vitamin. Obviously, as you can see, we are very satisfied Ask Ariel customers!"
Beagle Holly's Liver Counts Return to Normal
“Holly just had her 6 months blood test for her liver and kidney counts. Her liver is back to normal. YEA! Now we are focusing on her kidneys. She is feeling a lot better and it is nice to see her more active again. You are all a Godsend for us. We and Holly thank you for being here. Please keep up your loving healing work for those of us who love these wonderful little angel beings that depend on us for everything.”
“K9 Digestive Enzymes helped Maestro's breath and tartar on his teeth. My vet was so impressed.”
Amy Elder, California
“I am writing to let you know that Maya is fantastic. In case I have not said it already, I think the world of you and your passion and love for dogs is evident every time I need your help. You have transformed my baby from a dog who had diarrhea almost every week, scratched constantly and very nervous about everything to what she is today. Picture perfect healthy."
Our sincerest thanks and appreciation,
Olivia, Miti and Maya, California

What are digestive enzymes for dogs?
Digestive enzymes improve digestion by helping to break down food and increase absorption of nutrients. When the digestive process is improved, dogs experience less discomfort and will not exhibit behaviors such as hunching over after eating. Many dogs with digestive problems such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) and protein-losing enteropathy (PLE) have malabsorption issues, and by adding digestive enzymes to their regimen, these pets have improved absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Moreover, digestive enzymes can assist the pancreas by improving digestion of fats and protein, reducing symptoms of pancreatitis.
What are the best digestive enzymes for dogs?
K9 Digestive Enzymes contains the best digestive enzymes for dogs. K9 Digestive Enzymes combines a powerful animal-based ox bile extract, pancreatin and hydrochloric acid (HCL). HCL is important for protein digestion, and as dogs age, HCL production slows. Common signs of hypochlorhydria include bloating, burping, diarrhea, heartburn and gas. K9 Digestive Enzymes is especially helpful for dogs with heartburn and acid reflux.
What causes causes gastrointestinal problems in dogs?
Signs of gastrointestinal symptoms in dogs include diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, loose or bloody stool, bad breath and gas. These symptoms can be caused by ingesting toxins or spoiled food, poor digestion, diet, parasites or worms, liver disease, autoimmune disease, enzyme deficiencies or food intolerances. Certain autoimmune or inflammatory conditions of the intestinal tract can lead to malabsorption.
Why does my dog eat poop?
Coprophagia in dogs is often considered behavioral, but much of the time, there is an underlying nutritional deficiency or health issue that hasn’t been diagnosed. Intestinal parasites or worms are a common culprit, as is poor digestion. The pet owner may be feeding the pet a premium diet, but it is not the right diet to meet the pet’s needs. For example, some dogs may not digest dry kibble very well, as evidenced by passing large stools. The owner may believe the pet food is high quality, but if the dog isn’t absorbing the nutrients, then most of the ingredients are just passing through them. K9 Digestive Enzymes, combined with a higher-protein, highly digestible diet, can resolve coprophagia in most dogs.
