Benefits of Probiotics in Pets

Many pet owners have heard of probiotics, but many do not know whether or not probiotics would benefit their own pets living happily within their homes. So, is there even a point to add a daily supplement, such as a probiotic, into a pet’s daily routine?

 

Probiotics are healthy and beneficial for pets, even those that are not ill or showing signs of needing an extra boost to their digestive or immune systems.

 

Probiotics have increased in popularity as of late, for both humans and animals, and for good reason. The benefits of adding probiotics into a pet’s daily routine can be seen on multiple fronts. A few of the benefits that have been seen with consistent use of our Giving Bark™ and Giving Meowr™ Probiotic Powder including:

  • Supporting normal stool consistency
  • Promoting a healthy appetite
  • Maintaining healthy energy levels
  • Supporting the immune system
  • Promoting a healthy digestive tract during diet changes and times of environmental stress

 

So, what exactly are probiotics? And why does it consist of bacteria? That’s bad, right?  Probiotics are good/beneficial bacteria that some people and pets do not have enough of. To keep a healthy digestive system going, this can contribute to overall health and wellness, as the digestive system is closely connected to the immune system of your pet.

 

We recommend daily use to continue to have a happy, healthy digestive system. Aside from daily use, when are important times to support pets via use of probiotics?   You may want to consider giving your pet a probiotic before and during stressful situations. Stressful times may include:

  • Traveling/Boarding
  • Grooming
  • Moving
  • Vet Visits
  • Car Rides
  • Food Changes (from puppy/kitten to adult and/or different brands)

Having probiotics in your pet’s system before any of these events can help maintain normal stool consistency, for both you and your pet…if you can smell what we’re steppin’ in.

 

What do you say? Are you ready to add probiotics into your pet’s daily routine? If so, try our Giving Bark™ and Giving Meowr™ probiotic powder for dogs and cats. Each box contains 30 individual dosed packets to be sprinkled once a day onto your pet’s food.
