Viokase-V Powder is used as a digestive aid where digestion of protein, carbohydrate and fat is inadequate. In chronic pancreatitis, replacement therapy must be given for the duration of the animal’s life. Three daily feedings of a bland and easily digested diet containing sufficient quantities of good quality proteins and carbohydrates and low levels of fat are recommended (i.e., Prescription Diet, i/d). VIOKASE-V is given with each meal at a dosage level sufficient to keep the feces normal.

ADMINISTRATION: The VIOKASE-V tablets are administered before each meal. VIOKASE-V powder is added to moistened dog food (canned or dry). Thorough mixing is necessary to bring the enzymes into close contact with the food particles. Incubation at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before feeding appears to enhance the digestive process. Frequent feeding, at least 3 times daily, is important.

DOSAGE: Dogs: 2-3 tablets or 3/4-1 teaspoonful (2.8 g/teaspoonful) with each meal.

Cats: 1/2-1 tablet or 1/4-3/4 teaspoonful (2.8 g/teaspoonful) with each meal.

NOTE: No one regimen will be successful for every patient. The above dosage should be adjusted according to the severity of the pancreatic exocrine deficiency and weight of the animal. In cases of chronic insufficiency, the dosage should be increased until desired results are obtained.

STORAGE: Store in tightly closed container in a dry place at a temperature not exceeding 25°C (77°F).
