Probiotics for dogs help to reduce the amount of bad bacteria and toxins in the dog’s body. The result is a cleaner and more efficient digestive and immune system. When you supplement your dog with probiotics you’ll notice better skin and coat, better smelling breath, let gas, normal elimination, and better overall health.
There are probiotics that are formulated specifically for dogs. If your dog has bowel problems, extreme bad breath or is overly gassy, do some research and consult your veterinarian to choose a probiotic supplement that is formulated to reach your dog’s intestine, improving the bacterial flora. If, however, your dog is already in good health, you can aid her digestion by adding a dollop of plain yogurt to her food every day. Dogs usually like the tangy flavor, and the bacteria in yogurt aids in digestion.
