Viokase-V

Digestive Enzymes for Dogs and Cats

Viokase-V is a pancreatic enzyme supplement that helps the body digest and absorb proteins, fats, and carbohydrates from food. In pancreatic insufficiency, the enzymes necessary for proper digestion are not produced in sufficient quantities to maintain weight and health. Viokase-V supplements these enzymes to ensure proper nutrition, weight, and health in your cat or dog.
