The pancreas is the organ in the body responsible for producing insulin (which regulates the body’s blood sugar levels) and digestive enzymes (which aid in the digestion of starches, fats, and proteins in a cat’s diet).
Digestive enzymes from the pancreas play an integral role in assimilation of all major food components. A lack of pancreatic digestive enzymes will lead to incomplete digestion of nutrients. The large amount of nutrients remaining in the intestinal lumen in cats with Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) usually lead to loose voluminous stools and steatorrhea.
In the cases when the pet can not generate their own enzymes an external source of the pancreatic enzymes must be provided for proper digestion to proceed.
