Arthur Andrew Medical - Novequin DPF - 1,000 grams
Assists with proper digestion and immune health in large animals.
Are any of your animals showing the following symptoms?
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.
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.
- 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.
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.
A probiotic that has been shown to be clinically effective in the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is healthy bacteria that produces hydrogen peroxide, lactic acid, and other substances that create an acidic, unfriendly environment for harmful organisms.
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.
An enzyme that breaks down starches. Amylase helps ease digestion of excess starches processed in the large intestine.
Breaks down hemicellulose, a polysaccharide that’s present along with cellulose in all plant cell walls.
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.

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. 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 eat as if Novequin isn’t there, but this isn’t the case in all instances. Creative dosage methods 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 guidelines. Optimal dosage may be different depending on the individual animal’s needs, or as suggested by your veterinarian.
