Acetylator for Dogs and Cats
This is a digestive supplement that uses natural ingredients to try to improve the digestive system and bowel health of both cats and dogs. It contains digestive enzymes that help break down food, alfalfa that makes it pass more smoothly, and even a beneficial kind of bacteria that helps digestion (don't worry, if you've ever had Yogurt, you've eaten this bacteria). It's got several other natural ingredients that aid in digestion. This is not something that you really want to use as a substitute for a vet visit if your pet has major problems, but if your dog or cat is having minor indigestion or constipation, then this might help out without you having to use drugs.
Are there any side effects?
I haven't been able to find any. The stuff in this is mostly natural, so it is unlikely to cause any problems with your pet. I would watch out for allergies, however, and it might be a good idea to ask your vet about it just in case. At any rate, if you notice anything out of the ordinary after giving it to your pet, obviously stop using it and take the pet to the vet if it seems serious. Sometimes even with natural remedies, a pet could be allergic to one ingredient and have a bad reaction.
What is the proper dosage?
Generally, one pill per ten pounds of body weight of the pet. Check your bottle to make sure, however. They also recommend starting under that dose and gradually building up over a week or so.
Where can I get it?
There is one version used for both dogs and cats. You can get it online here:
