Probiotics & Prebiotics for Dogs with Sensitive Stomach

 

Did you know that gastrointestinal or stomach sensitivities are one of the most common health problems for dogs after skin diseases? Like human beings, dogs can become sensitive to a particular food or certain food ingredients, causing stomach upset. Most dogs’ gut consists of good bacteria that assist in digestion and breaking down of ingested food particles. When there are insufficient numbers of good bacteria, the harmful bacteria can overwhelm the good microorganisms causing stomach problems. The remedy to this problem is probiotic and prebiotics for dogs. 

1. What is a probiotic?

A probiotic is a formula that consists of living stomach-friendly bacteria, usually found in the body’s digestive tract and parts. Probiotics exist to help prevent gastrointestinal tract (GIT) problems, restore a good amount of beneficial bacteria, and improve the immune system after being negatively affected by infections, antibiotics treatment, diseases, and other stressors. Other benefits of dog probiotics are that; may help to reduce flatulence and diarrhoea, and improve sensitive stomachs.

prebiotics for dogs

Prebiotics come from food ingredients (mostly fibre) that dogs cannot ingest.  They can provide certain good bacterial species in the dog’s gastrointestinal tract. Getting the right probiotic is the best solution to your dogs’ stomach sensitivity problems. Our Pre-Pro Biotic blend contains the best probiotics and prebiotics available for your dog.

Fructo-Oligosaccharide Prebiotic

Fructo-Oligosaccharides are plant sugars naturally derived from a wide variety of mainly fruits and vegetables. 

Since dogs’ diets are primarily meat based, which don’t contain many (or sometimes any) prebiotic oligosaccharides, they help to carry them to your dog’s large intestine where it is needed.

In addition to improving digestibility of food, they also encourage the growth of ‘good bacteria’ in the large intestine and overall gastro-intestinal health in dogs.
