    :msniwonder:I was researching online, and noticed alot of talk about adding an enzyme supplement to your dog's food... Is it primarily for dogs that eat commercial dog food, or does it also help if you feed your dog a homemade diet like I do?
    Also- when I checked out the enzymes that they sell at the pet store, it noted the amount of lipase and amylase content on the labels.My concern is that Bubba's bloodwork noted he had high levels of these, so does that mean I SHOULDN"T add these supplements to his diet?
    Any and all feedback is appreciated!!!!!!!!

    If your dog is being fed a 'complete' commercial diet, or a balanced raw diet, there is no need for supplements.

    (As far as I'm concerned.)

    Well, he mostly eats a homemade(not raw) diet, but occasionally does eat dry kibble...

    Then: is the homemade food balanced? Is the dry food complete?
