Novequin DPF

Novequin Optimizes Digestive Health Throughout an Animal's Lifetime

Novequin DPF (Digestive Probiotic Formula) is a clinically effective blend of probiotics, prebiotics and digestive enzymes for all grazing animals and livestock. Enzymes assist with the digestion of food while probiotics alleviate digestive stress caused by medication and antibiotic exposure. Animals with sensitive digestive systems sometimes experience diarrhea, shedding, bad breath, yeast infections, and constipation. An irritable bowel can cause severe exhaustion and weaken the immune system. Novequin replenishes beneficial intestinal bacteria that ease digestion and improve immune function. Novequin is essential for long term health.

 


Young Animals

Animals enter the world with a sterile digestive tract, although they quickly acquire millions of bacteria; both harmful and beneficial. Usually the beneficial bacteria are able to keep the harmful bacteria in check; however, harmful bacteria grow much quicker than the beneficial ones. Harmful bacteria can take control of the young digestive system, with potentially disastrous results. Adding probiotics, enzymes and healthy yeast to a young animal’s diet helps strengthen its immune system and defends against harmful bacterial overgrowth. Probiotics also help stop and prevent diarrhea, and improve immune function. This will lead to bigger, stronger, healthier animals at weaning.


Adulthood

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 increase acidity in the gut, killing off beneficial bacteria and 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.


Old Age

Older animals are not able to completely digest, absorb and metabolize nutrients as well as young animals, which can lead to a decrease in body weight, loss of energy 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 a result, 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, improving its overall health.

  • Performance and endurance
  • Coat appearance and hoof quality
  • Enhancing appetite

 

Benefits of Digestive Enzymes

While microbes like 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 which produce toxins and gases that can lead to colic and damage to the delicate digestive system.

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

    Suggested Use

    Directions: 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, it is recommended to find a way that best fits your animal’s needs. It is important to simply find a method that is suitable for the animal’s size and personality. Many animals will feed as if the Novequin wasn’t there, but this will not be the case in all instances; creative ways may be necessary. Any method that enables Novequin to be consumed by the animal is a good method.

    Dosing: The following dosage schedule may be used as general guideline. Optimal dosage may be different depending on the individual animal’s needs or as suggested by your veterinarian.

    Description Amount Frequency
    Therapeutic / Medicinal 2 Scoops (10 grams) 3 times per day
    Maintenance / Preventative 2 Scoops (10 grams) 1-2 times per day

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Novequin DPF is a clinically effective blend of probiotics, prebiotics and digestive enzymes for all grazing animals and livestock. Enzymes assist with the digestion of food while probiotics alleviate digestive stress caused by medication and antibiotic exposure. Animals with sensitive digestive systems sometimes experience diarrhea, shedding, bad breath, yeast infections, and constipation. An irritable bowel can cause severe exhaustion and weaken the immune system. Novequin replenishes beneficial intestinal bacteria that ease digestion and improve immune function. Novequin is essential for long term health.
    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.
    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 breakdown) many of the typical types of food common in an animals diet. The enzymes in Novequin are specific to the digestion of carbohydrates, protein and fiber.
    Novequin brings beneficial, bacteria found in nature to your animals. These bacteria or microbes, which help to maintain an animals’ digestive systems, used to come from the soil while animals are grazing. Grazing animals kept in contained areas cannot maintain proper amounts of these microbes in their digestive systems. This may lead to them becoming stressed so they don’t perform well. By adding Novequin you will notice a healthier animal right away and they will look and perform better.
    No serious or adverse side effects have been reported from applying Novequin to an animal’s daily feed regimen. Clinical studies have shown that even extremely large doses of these enzymes and probiotics are not toxic.
    Novequin can be used safely with other dietary supplements. For the best health possible, we recommend at least one daily dose of Novequin along with our powerful systemic animal formula, Neprofin.
    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, it is recommended to find a way that best fits your animal’s needs. It is important to simply find a method that is suitable for the animal’s size and personality. Many animals will simply feed as if the Novequin wasn’t there, but this will not be the case with all household pets. Creative ways may be necessary. For instance, Novequin has been successfully administered in a small amount of apple sauce or peanut butter. Any method that enables Novequin to be consumed by the animal is a good method.
    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 a month's time is recommended, with the best results occurring anywhere from one to three months thereafter.
    The formula is vegetarian and vegan in accordance with the guidelines of the American Vegetarian Association.

    Maintaining Digestive Health Can Be a Challenge

    Novequin combines beneficial bacteria and non-animal derived enzymes found in nature to form an effective product to support digestive health. Both probiotics and enzymes were once naturally found in the soil while animals were grazing, but 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, eventually affecting performance. By adding Novequin to the diet, a noticeably healthier animal will quickly appear.
