Simple shedding, in an otherwise healthy pet, is to be expected with virtually any dog or cat. Most shedding issues are related to some type of digestive tract imbalance that reduces the body's ability to absorb nutrients and provide the needed nutrition to the maintain a healthy skin and coat. Our NZYMES Antioxidant Treats or Sprouted Granules support better nutrient absorption and can help with these problems. For more information please see our SHEDDING page. LOW THYROID AND SYMMETRICAL HAIR LOSS PROBLEMS In cases where there seems to be symmetrical hair loss for a dog (or cat), this would be a strong indication of a Thyroid imbalance. Low thyroid, or Hypothyroidism, is a frequent cause of this type of hair loss - where hair disappears from both sides of the body in like patterns, or even other portions of the body in like patterns. If this sounds like what you might be seeing, please see - Canine Thyroid Disease. HAIR LOSS: PULLING, CHEWING, OR SCRATCHING Spotty hair loss of this nature is typically due to severe GI Tract imbalances of the primary protective bacteria and the Candida Yeast. At NZYMES.COM we have worked with 10's of thousands of these cases using our Healthy-Skin Program for yeast overgrowth. If your pet is itching, licking or chewing at the feet or legs, experiencing reoccurring ear infections, reddened or blackened skin, underarm rashes, bad smell or odor, etc. - then these are strong indicators that you need to read our Healthy-Skin Program.

NZYMES® Granules or Treats are products which work by providing the body with a nutrient rich, 'live food' source, which are missing from all processed pet foods and even raw-fed diets. This resource helps to support and enable many critical bodily processes, primarily the increased production of vital metabolic enzymes used to maintain various cellular functions. These primary enzymes include Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) and its counterpart - Catalase, Glutathione Peroxidase, and Methionine Reductase. These four compose the body's primary antioxidant enzyme defense system,which perform a complex series of cleansing processes. In addition, the ‘live food' properties of N'ZYMES® Granules or Treats, assist in the natural production of Digestive enzymes, enabling the body to maximize nutritional benefit from other food sources.
