Oatmeal Test for Active Digestive Enzymes
If your dog has been diagnosed with canine osteosarcoma, we both know osteosarcoma in dogs is serious business and you are doing all you can to help your guy or girl live a long and happy life. While most of my posts are down to business (not that this one isn’t), this is a fun test that lets you know pretty quickly whether or not the enzyme product you’ve chosen for your dog has living, active enzymes capable of digesting foods.
- Open a packet of instant oatmeal and empty it into a small container, a cup, glass, bowl.
- Following the instructions on the packet which in this case is a 1:1 ratio, pour in the specified amount of water. Cold water if you plan to microwave, hot water if, like me, you’ll never own a microwave.
- If using a microwave, place the container inside, set the timer for three minutes, and keep an eye on the oatmeal as it could bubble over.
- After three minutes, remove the container from the microwave.
- Stir the oatmeal again
- Allow it to cool, since extremely hot foods can kill your plant source derived enzymes which tolerate only about 114 -118 degree Fahrenheit.
- When cooled, the oatmeal will congeal in the container so that even when it’s turned upside down, it remains glued in the container.
- When the oatmeal is solid, open and empty one of your enzyme capsules into the oatmeal (normally one capsule has the capacity to digest 2 ounces of animal based products).
- Stir the contents of the capsule into the oatmeal. As you stir, if the oatmeal become a digested liquid, congratulations, you’ve selected a good product.
