Can you clarify "enzyme pills" for me - the name, ingredients, strength? How much does your Harry weigh, please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They are enzyme tablets and harry is 10. I am looking for the bottle so I can tell you the name

No worries. In general, digestive enzymes won't be harmful to Harry. I'll watch for your next post.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nevermind the phone call sorry haha thank you though
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

Actually, my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow my speaking with customers by phone in this venue in any event. Did you find the bottle?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it is karyn's Kate systemic enzymes
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

Thank you! Don't give it a second thought. There's nothing toxic in that product. It's a weak version of what I might prescribe to dogs suffering from exocrine pancreatic insufficiency - a lack of digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas.

I can't set a follow-up in this venue and so would appreciate your returning to our conversation with an update - even after rating - at a time of your choosing.
