Novequin

$39.99 - $74.99
Assists with proper digestion and immune health in large animals.

Are any of your animals showing the following symptoms?

  • Diarrhea
  • Shedding
  • Bad breath
  • Yeast infections
  • Constipation

The problem may be due to an imbalance of gut flora as well as a lack of enzymes in the diet.

The cause of this problem can be anything from antibiotics or other medicines, to stress, old age, or even grazing in poor quality soil. Just like humans, animals’ bodies also have a harder time properly utilizing beneficial enzymes as they get older. With Novequin, your animals will experience better digestion and overall health.

Novequin is a safe, effective digestive health supplement for all stages of an animal’s life.

Product Information

Novequin is a highly effective blend of probiotics, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes for large animals. Enzymes assist with the digestion of food while probiotics alleviate digestive stress caused by environmental changes and medications. Animals with sensitive digestive systems sometimes experience diarrhea, shedding, bad breath, yeast infections, and constipation.

Novequin Contains:

  • Protease to break down proteins
  • Amylase to digest starch
  • Hemicellulase and cellulase to break down fiber

How Novequin Works

An irritable bowel can cause severe exhaustion and weaken the immune system. Novequin replenishes beneficial intestinal bacteria that ease digestion and improve immune function, which is essential for long-term health.

Novequin for Young Animals

Animals enter the world with a relatively sterile digestive tract, although they quickly acquire trillions of bacteria—both harmful and beneficial. Usually the beneficial bacteria are able to keep the harmful bacteria in check. However, harmful bacteria can take control of a young digestive system with potentially disastrous results.

Adding probiotics, enzymes, and healthy yeast to a young animal’s diet can help strengthen its immune system and defend against harmful bacterial overgrowth. Probiotics can also help stop or prevent digestive distress, and improve immune function. This leads to bigger, stronger, healthier animals at weaning.

Novequin for Adult Animals

As an animal matures, it faces many stressful situations: transporting, performing, competing, sickness, injury and many others. Along with the often necessary use of antibiotics, these stressors can lead to a microflora imbalance, leaving the digestive system unprotected. Probiotics can increase good bacteria in the digestive tract and prevent the harmful effects of digestive imbalance, including colic.

Since probiotics and enzymes improve the digestion and absorption of nutrients, even healthy animals can benefit from supplementation. Optimal digestive health means better coats, stronger hooves, and superior athletic performance.

Novequin for Aging Animals

Just like humans, older animals have a hard time digesting, absorbing, and metabolizing nutrients as easily as their younger counterparts. This can lead to decreased body weight, energy loss, and an overall deterioration of health. Muscle mass begins to decline and connective tissue becomes lax. The animal’s immune system also suffers, which increases the risk of infections and delays healing.

As you can see, improving your older animal’s digestive health is vitally important for a long and happy life. By supplementing the diet with probiotics, enzymes, and beneficial yeast, your animal will have a better appetite, absorb more nutrients, and increase lean body mass, all of which improve their overall health.

Benefits of Digestive Enzymes

While bacteria do the bulk of the work in an animal’s digestive tract, enzymes also play a significant role. Enzymes are essential for complete, rapid digestion of feed, especially fiber. When enzyme levels are low, feed remains undigested and can ferment in the gut. Instead of providing nutrients, this decaying feed nourishes harmful microorganisms. These microorganisms then produce toxins and gases that can lead to colic and damage the digestive system.

Maintaining Digestive Health Can Be a Challenge

Novequin combines beneficial bacteria and microbial-derived enzymes to create an effective product that supports digestive health. Both probiotics and enzymes were once naturally found in the soil while animals were grazing. However, the combination of nutrient-depleted soil and smaller contained grazing areas equates to subpar amounts of these beneficial microbes in their digestive systems. This may lead to the animals becoming stressed and ill, ultimately impacting performance.

By adding Novequin to their diet, you’ll have healthier, more productive animals in your care.

Product Ingredients

Calcium Carbonate

Nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract are absorbed most efficiently when the environment is alkaline (pH over seven). Calcium carbonate helps to alkalize the digestive tract, allowing for optimal absorption of nutrients.

Prebiotic Isomalto-Oligosaccharide (IMO)

IMO is a natural, non-GMO prebiotic fiber for promoting digestive health. When IMO enters the intestines, it is consumed by the probiotic bacteria, allowing the good bacteria to flourish. It has been clinically shown to greatly increase the number of indigenous bacteria in the digestive tract. Clinical studies have shown IMO to be more effective than other prebiotics like inulin and FOS.

E. faecium

A probiotic that has been shown to be clinically effective in the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea.

L. acidophilus

Lactobacillus acidophilus is healthy bacteria that produces hydrogen peroxide, lactic acid, and other substances that create an acidic, unfriendly environment for harmful organisms.

Protease

A proteolytic enzyme that is capable of digesting a broad range of proteins. Protease is responsible for digesting the bulk of ingested proteins. Novequin contains a blend of proteases to broaden the pH range of the product. This enzyme digests excessive blood proteins as well. When present in blood serum, protease plays an important role in circulatory health.

Amylase

An enzyme that breaks down starches. Amylase helps ease digestion of excess starches processed in the large intestine.

Hemicellulase

Breaks down hemicellulose, a polysaccharide that’s present along with cellulose in all plant cell walls.

Cellulase

An enzyme that digests cellulose, or plant fiber. Most animals do not produce cellulose naturally and are therefore unable to use most of the energy contained in plant material.

Suggested Use

Directions: Every animal is different. The simplest way to administer Novequin is to add the appropriate serving (see suggested use) to your animal’s meal or into an oral syringe with water.

FAQs

What is Novequin?

Novequin is a highly effective blend of probiotics, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes for large animals such as horses and livestock. Enzymes assist with the digestion of food, while probiotics alleviate digestive stress caused by medication and antibiotic exposure. Novequin provides relief to animals suffering with a sensitive digestive system that causes symptoms such as diarrhea, shedding, bad breath, yeast infections, and constipation. The formula replenishes beneficial bacteria in animals’ intestines to ease digestion and improve immune function for long-term health.

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are medically referred to as a group of friendly bacteria or microflora. Probiotic bacteria favorably alter the intestinal microflora balance, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Animals with flourishing intestinal colonies of beneficial bacteria are better equipped to fight the growth of disease-causing bacteria and pathogens, and inhibit the negative effects of constant antibiotic overexposure.

What are digestive enzymes?

Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts in biochemical reactions. Every enzyme has a specific reactant known as a substrate, which can be thought of like a lock and key. Novequin contains several enzymes or “keys” that can “unlock” (or break down) many of the typical types of food common in an animal’s diet.

The enzymes in Novequin are specific to the digestion of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber.

How does Novequin work?

Novequin brings beneficial bacteria found in nature to your animals. These bacteria, or microbes which help to maintain animals’ digestive systems, used to come from the soil where animals graze. Grazing animals kept in contained areas cannot maintain proper amounts of these microbes in their digestive systems. This may lead to them becoming stressed, which affects their overall performance.

By adding Novequin, you will notice a healthier animal right away—and they will look and perform better too.

Is Novequin safe?

Yes. There have been no reports of any serious or adverse side effects from putting Novequin into an animal’s daily feed regimen. Clinical studies have shown that even extremely large doses of these enzymes and probiotics are nontoxic.

Can I administer Novequin with other supplements?

Novequin can be used safely with other dietary supplements. For best results, we recommend at least one daily dose of Novequin along with our powerful systemic enzyme formula, Neprofin.

How do I administer Novequin?

Every animal is different. The simplest way to administer Novequin is to simply add the appropriate serving (see suggested use) to your animal’s meal. For finicky eaters, we recommended finding a way that best fits your animal’s needs. It’s important to simply find a method that is suitable for the animal’s size and personality.

Many animals will simply eat as if the Novequin isn’t there, but this isn’t the case in all situations. Creative ways may be necessary. For instance, Novequin has been successfully administered using an oral syringe with a small amount of water. Any method that enables Novequin to be consumed by the animal is considered a good method.

How long does It take for Novequin to work?

Although every animal is different, some owners have reported seeing the effects of probiotics and enzymes within the first day of supplementation. For therapeutic regimens, the progression may be slow for some and quicker for others. Typically, supplementing the product for a minimum of one month's time is recommended, with the best results occurring anywhere from one to three months thereafter.

Is Novequin Kosher?

The formula is Kosher, and a copy of the certification is available by request.

Is Novequin vegetarian or vegan?

The formula is vegetarian and vegan in accordance with the guidelines of the American Vegetarian Association.
