The benefits of prebiotics and probiotics for dogs and cats

Probiotics are often recommended to help restore balance in the digestive system after an upset stomach, and particularly after a course of antibiotics that, by their very nature, kill bacteria and are not very selective about it. These are designed to make the process of breaking down and digesting food work smoothly and efficiently. Due to the way in which probiotics support digestion and the immune system, many think that adding them to your pet’s diet daily is a great idea.

Digestive enzymes break down food that the pet eats and release the nutrients to be absorbed and used by the body. In healthy animals, the pancreas will produce plenty of the enzymes required and supplementation is not needed at all. If you think your pet may need enzyme supplementation, it is a good idea to consult your vet for confirmation, in case strong supplementation is required, or whether supplements are not required and may actually cause digestive upset.
