Slightly sweet flavor pets enjoy. NASC Quality Seal and 100% guaranteed. Made in the USA.
In Clover's OptaGest is a complete digestive aid for dogs and cats, containing both enzymes and prebiotic. The four enzymes help process fats, carbohydrates and protein, easing the burden placed on the digestive system. The prebiotic, Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), provides food for the native intestinal bacteria. Naturally occurring bacteria are an important GI system component in keeping your pet's digestive and immune systems healthy.
The 4 plant-based enzymes in OptaGest assure proper digestion and absorption of nutrients throughout the entire digestive system:
- Protease - provides protein digestion in the stomach and small intestine to build muscle; Aspergillus sourced protease is acid-stable to survive the low-pH of the gastric juices.
- Amylase - digests starchy foods to release simple sugars for energy
- Cellulase - provides dogs and cats with the enzyme they lack to digest cellulose, reducing the bulking effect of fibrous foods
- Lipase - digests triglycerides and fatty acids allowing the pet to absorb Vitamins A, D, E and K and Omega-3 Fatty Acids (very helpful for pets eating food with Omega-3 Fatty Acids added or those taking fish oil supplements).
What Makes OptaGest Different?
- 4 Plant Enzymes PLUS Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) in clinically tested levels
- NO fillers such as lactose or grain to cause further digestive upset
- No artificial flavors, only a tasty, slightly sweet powder that pets enjoy (in taste test trials, dogs and cats equally found the flavor to be yummy)

The easiest way is to simply add the suggested amount to your pet's meal. It's okay to give OptaGest once a day, or if you feed more than once a day, you can split the recommended amount to give a portion with each meal.
An alternative method is to mix the OptaGest® with water; ¼ teaspoon OptaGest® to one eighth cup of water is about right.
