What Are Probiotics for Dogs?
Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that live in the digestive tract.
Billions of these bacteria (and some yeast) live in the gastrointestinal system of animals. These healthy gut bacteria balance the internal environment to prevent disease and promote health.
They perform tasks like:
Helping to break down food
Making nutrients and vitamins
Fighting off potential pathogens
Can Puppies Take Probiotics?
Yes, puppies can take dog-specific probiotics. This will help their developing balance of intestinal bacteria to support a healthy immune system and reduce the incidence of diarrhea, constipation, and infections of the digestive tract.
