Uses - Tryplase

Tryplase Capsules contain the three major pancreatic enzymes responsible for digestion of fat, protein and starch in the small intestine. The formulation is particularly suitable for replacement therapy or supplementation in the dog and cat. It is indicated in the treatment of impaired digestion and diarrhoea caused by deficiencies of exocrine pancreatic secretion.

Administration may also be indicated in cases of non-specific diarrhoea where persistent hypermotility of the intestine prevents adequate utilisation of pancreatic enzymes.

Dosage and administration - Tryplase

When an animal receives more than one meal daily, the dose should be divided appropriately between the feeds. The dose should be adjusted to obtain faeces of normal consistency and will thus be variable. The table provides general guidance:

Species Dosage

Dogs: The contents of 2–5 capsules per day, sprinkled on food (5 capsules are sufficient to digest the declared fat, protein and carbohydrate content of 1 lb (approx. 500 g) of dog food).
Cats: The contents of 1–2 capsules per day, sprinkled on food (2 capsules are sufficient to digest the declared fat, protein and carbohydrate content of ½ lb (approx. 250 g) of cat food).

Do not administer whole capsules.

If signs of disease persist or appear consult your Veterinary Surgeon.


Contra-indications, warnings, etc

The correct dosage should be adjusted to suit the individual case.

Further information

After a course of treatment and when symptoms are controlled, it is advisable to reduce the dose gradually over a seven day period in order to ascertain either the degree of recovery or necessity for a permanent maintenance dose. Where permanent therapy is required, dose levels should be reduced periodically to see whether pancreatic recovery has taken place. However, more often the deficiency is progressive and patients should be re-examined at intervals to ensure stability.

Proper dietary control is also essential for successful management of cases suffering from pancreatic insufficiency.

Consult a veterinary surgeon for advice.

Each capsule contains:
Amylase – sufficient to digest 40 g of dietary starch.
Lipase – sufficient to digest 17 g of dietary fat.
Protease – sufficient to digest 34 g of dietary protein.
In exocrine pancreatic insufficiency the addition of these extracts to the feed aids in proper digestion of fat, protein and starch.
