Probiotics are good bacteria. Our bodies, and those of our dogs, are full of bacteria and in the case of your woof, they outnumber cells by ten to one. Most of these live in the gut and are harmless. In fact, good gut bacteria support many positive aspects of health, including immune function, weight, skin and digestion, and this also applies to our dogs. Adding Probiotics to your dog’s diet can further increase the quantity of good bacteria, leading to an even healthier gut.
Doesn’t a raw food diet help with good gut health?
A raw food diet is the best option for good gut health. But just like we humans sometimes supplement our diets with a Probiotic yoghurt to support our gut health, we can now give the same to our dogs using Animotics.
When would I need to give my dog a Probiotic?
A Probiotic like Animotics is particularly useful to boost your pet’s gut health. Humans often take them after a stomach complaint, or to counteract side effects of antibiotics. In the case of your woofs, there are several instances when Animotics could be used:
- Equalise the stomach after an upset (particularly if your dog is a scrounger)
- Lessen the effect of a switch in diet
- Improve performance
- Help with behaviour
- Following surgery or veterinary intervention
- Support microorganisms in the gut and immune function
- During stressful or upsetting periods
Animotics won’t harm your dog as it is a completely natural and supportive formulation so if you think your dog is looking a little off colour, a few doses of Animotics could be really helpful. It’s easy to give as well, either directly into the mouth or added to food. You can store it in the fridge with your chilled raw food too.
