Product Description

Viokase Powder is a concentrated medication of pancreatic enzymes used to promote more efficient digestion in canines. The enzymes are of porcine origin and aid in the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Viokase Powder is also used as an aid for digestive and biliary disorders. It is effective in treating acute pancreatic disorders, but can also be used as replacement therapy for dogs suffering from chronic pancreatic and digestive problems. The medication is an oral treatment and can be easily given to dogs through food.

Dogs should be fed three times each day, with the medication administered at each meal. Simply mix the Viokase Powder thoroughly into wet food or dry food that has been moistened. The food/medicine mixture should then be allowed to sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes. More efficient digestion means a happier, healthier pet. Stop using the medicine in animals that show symptoms of hypersensitivity or allergy to the drug. Do not administer the drug to animals allergic to pork proteins.

Side Effects & Warnings

Viokase-V causes only partial side effects. Serious side effects come only with high doses. The prominent side effects of Viokase-V include diarrhea, weight loss, and increased appetite. Discontinue use in animals with symptoms of sensitivity.

Ingredients

Each 2.8 g (1 teaspoonful) contains:

Lipase 71,400 USP units
Protease 388,000 USP units
Amylase 460,000 USP units

Directions

Viokase-V is available in bottles of 4 ounces, 8 ounces, and 12 ounces. Add Viokase-V powder to moistened dog food. Mix properly to create close contact between the enzymes and food particles. Keep the mixture for incubation at room temperature for 15-20 minutes prior to feeding, for easier digestion. The recommended dose of pancreatic enzymes in dogs is 3/4-1 teaspoonful of the powder mixed with each meal. Frequent feeding (at least 3 times a day) is very important. For cats, the general dose is 1/4-3/4 teaspoonful (2.8 g/teaspoonful) with each meal. Adjust the dosage of the drug based on the severity of the pancreatic exocrine deficiency and the weight of the animal.

Viokase Powder is administered either as a treatment for an acute pancreatic attack or as part of a lifestyle for an animal suffering from chronic pancreatitis. It is given together with each meal (the pet must stick to a bland and easily digested diet), very thoroughly mixed into moistened food, and left to sit for 15 minutes.

Dosage:

Dogs - ¾-1 teaspoonful
Cats - ¼-¾ teaspoonful
