An essential fatty acid, called EFAs for short, they are the fats the dog's body doesn't produce, so it has to get them from the food it eats, or thru supplements. Essential Fatty acids are aptly named because they are essential to the dog's health. The dog's body uses EFAs to lubricate its skin and tissues and allows cells to function normally. A deficiency in EFAs can lead to dry skin, skin rashes, excess shedding, heart disease, and joint inflammation. Thru proper diet and supplementation these aliments can be eliminated.
A digestive enzyme that assists the dog's digestive system in improving digestion allowing the body to digest carbohydrates from the food they eat. Poor diet, and a variety of microbes (bacteria, yeast, and parasites) can weaken the digestion and the bodies ability to produce enzymes, this can lead to incomplete digestion known as "leaky gut syndrome". Amylase along with other enzymes contained in PetCentrx for dogs are useful for treating, gas, bloating, and allergic conditions. They may also be effective in relieving many chronic health problems, such as arthritis.
A digestive enzyme that assists the dog's digestive system in improving digestion allowing the body to digest proteins from the food they eat. Poor diet, and a variety of microbes (bacteria, yeast, and parasites) can weaken the digestion and the bodies ability to produce enzymes, this can lead to incomplete digestion known as "leaky gut syndrome". Protease along with other enzymes contained in PetCentrx for dogs are useful for treating, gas, bloating, and allergic conditions. They may also be effective in relieving many chronic health problems, such as arthritis.

Lipase along with other enzymes contained in PetCentrx for dogs are useful for treating, gas, bloating, and allergic conditions. They may also be effective in relieving many chronic health problems, such as arthritis.
A natural plant enzyme found in Papayas that aids in protein digestion, soothes the stomach, reduces pain, reduces swelling, and increases palatability.
- Grape Seed Extract
A potent antioxidant preventing free radicals, radical oxygen molecules that attack the cells, from damaging cells. Daily use of grape seed extract may help in preventing cancer, and helps the dog look and feel younger.
Also referred to as Gooseberry. Provides synergistic support to enzyme activity.
Also known as vitamin P, is a biologically active nutrient. This beneficial nutrient support blood vessel strength, and act as an antioxidant to slow the effects of aging.
Aids in the digestion of glucose from plant fibers into smaller units, which provides energy. Helps remedy digestive problems such as "leaky gut syndrome". Cellulase is a very important enzyme because the dog's body cannot produce it on its own.

- Co-enzyme Q-10
Functions to help the cells of the dog's body produce energy in the power centers of the cell. CoQ-10 works specifically in the cells of the nervous system found in the heart, nerves, and brain, and is concentrated in the liver. CoQ-10 acts as an antioxidant protecting heart tissues from radical oxygen molecules that attack the cells. CoQ-10 also supports the dog's immune system, an energy enhancer, and a cancer-fighting substance. CoQ-10 in conjunction with proper diet and exercise helps protect against diabetes, and cardiovascular problems. CoQ-10 also reduces the symptoms of canine gum disease. Because CoQ-10 levels drop as dogs age research suggest it helps slow the aging process.
