Does Your Dog Have Diarrhea? Probiotics Can Help with Gut Support

You Are What You Absorb.  A body is only as strong as the nutrients it absorbs, and the gut is the body’s engine.  A healthy gut increases nutrient absorption.  Certain strains of bacteria are “friendly” to the body, helping to both strengthen the gut and inhibit growth of harmful bacteria that can cause yeast overgrowths in the ears and skin.  Good bacteria include acidophilus (lactobacillus acidophilus) and lactobacillus bifidus.  Acidophilus can help your dog detoxify, has antibacterial and antifungal properties, and can aid digestion and the absorption of nutrients.  Sometimes when dogs have digestive difficulties preventing nutrient absorption, we can help them by replacing or supplementing their friendly bacteria.  To help strengthen your dog’s gut, we have milled select organic foods that act as PREbiotics to feed the PRObiotics that act as enzymes and digestive aids geared specifically toward dogs recovering from intestinal stress.  Adding PREbiotics is important for nourishing PRObiotics in order for them to thrive.  These PREbiotic nutrients come in the form of milled plant fiber, specifically,  organic superfoods chia and flaxseed, ground to increase bioavailability, which also delivers healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.  You will also find organic wheatgrass in Pro-Active Biotics™, with the health benefits that include oxygenating/energizing chlorophyll, a natural internal cleanser.  Note that milling to a powder gives more bioavailability and increased nutrient absorption. This is especially helpful for dogs with dental problems or who are weak, because powders spare digestive energy during healing. Like all of Wonder Dog Superfoods™, your dog’s coat will shine from the Omega-3’s.
