Your Pets and Probiotics

Don’t forget your pets when taking your daily
Body Bioticsâ„¢

 

We all love our pets. And we want the best for them, especially when it comes to their health. So why not give them the same healthy benefits of a good probiotic as we give ourselves? Animals experience digestive issues just like we do and a good daily dose of BODY BIOTICS SBO Prebiotics/Probiotics Consortia will do them good. So when you take your morning dose, go ahead and sprinkle a capsule into your furry companion’s wet food.

“…A dog’s digestive system, which is mainly responsible for breaking down food, absorbs the nutrients from the dog food and distributes it throughout the body and prevents toxins from entering the bloodstream. In fact, research indicates that 70% of a dog’s immune system lies in the digestive tract….”2 Sound familiar? Just as the health of our immune system originates with the gut, so does that of our pets! So it is equally important to keep them healthy, starting with their gut flora.

Pets don’t often get the probiotics they need for their maximum health. Most pets eat a diet of highly heat treated foods that contain no living probiotics. Additionally, they are commonly walked on concrete sidewalks or in parks with compacted or contaminated soils. And the grass they frolic on is often treated with weed control. None of these provide a source for clean soil born Probiotics. Your pet may have a bacterial imbalance if they show the following signs:

  • Yeast overgrowth and rashes
  • gas and breath odor
  • improper bowel function
  • skin condition and poor coat
  • excessive shedding

By providing your pet with a consortia of probiotic strains such as that found in BODY BIOTICSâ„¢, you can positively impact the gastrointestinal function of your animals. With daily probiotic supplementation, you may notice shinier coats, improved breath, less flatulence, and overall improved health and longevity.

According to the Journal of Nutrition, “…Weaning, a new home, and dietary changes are all conditions that are known to affect the intestinal microflora of dogs and for which probiotics might be beneficial. Probiotics might also be of benefit to dogs living in a large colony or sold in pet shops in which animal concentration, pressure of infection and stress can significantly affect animal resistance to disease…”1

I recently took my dog to the vet for a teeth cleaning and they wanted to send her home with antibiotics, which is so commonly prescribed, whether they need it or not. But the good news, is they also wanted to send her home with a probiotic, “because the antibiotics can cause the pet to have diarrhea.” Many vets are now including probiotics as part of their treatment plans for their patients. It is about time! So don’t forget to give your pet their daily maintenance dose of BODY BIOTICS SBO Prebiotic/Probiotic Consortia. They will wag their tails to say, “thank you!”

Healthiest wishes,

Kelli
