Probiotics for your Pets? What You Need To Know

You’ve probably heard about the benefits of probiotics for humans, but did you know that your pet can benefit from it as well?

If you Google ‘pets and probiotics’ you’ll get over 8,000,000 results, so let’s simplify it a bit.

What Are Probiotics:

Probiotics are useful bacteria that live in the digestive tract. There are billions of these beneficial bacteria and they aid in the digestion of food, maintaining a normal intestinal balance, as well as help if your pet has been exposed to a pathogenic virus/bacteria, or pollutants and allergens.

How Can Probiotics Help My Pet

Probiotics help maintain a constant supply of friendly bacteria in optimal numbers and ratio to treat a wide variety of health problems.

Puppy/Kitten Stage: Newborn puppies and kittens have a relatively “clean” and sterile intestinal tract Using a probiotic can help fortify the tract and is also helpful when they start to wean and aid the digestive system in the adjustment from mother’s milk to food.

After Antibiotic Treatment: Antibiotics can kill off beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. Probiotics can help replenish this bacteria and restore the balance of intestinal microflora.

Digestive Disorders: Probiotics can be used as part of the treatment for diarrhea due to infectious causes, as well as help with constipation, flatulence, and bloat.

Allergies/Skin Problems: Some allergy symptoms such as itching and eczema are connected with an imbalance in the intestines. Probiotics can alleviate some of these symptoms.

Stress: Long trips, vaccinations, surgery, and changes in their environment can reduce your pet’s appetite which can lead to a weakened immunity. Probiotics can improve digestion and strengthen the immune system.

Can I Give My Pet Probiotics Meant for Humans?

According to PetMD, veterinarians that study the subject recommend a probiotic that is especially made for your pet.
