It’s a Gut Reaction for your Pets

petprebioticsIs digestive health really something we need to be concerned about in pet health? The answer is an overwhelming yes. Gut health is the biggest line of defense in immune function and longevity for your pets. And prebiotics are one of the most effective ways to maintain digestive function integrity.

A whopping 70 % of pet health and immunity depends on the digestive system. Pathogens, or bad bacteria, continually assault a pet’s (or human’s) body, specifically in the digestive system. Good bacteria can eliminate or neutralize the bad bacteria. Problems can often occur when a pet’s system gets overwhelmed by stress, food change, travel, medicines or exposure to a particularly nasty pathogen.

Prebiotics selectively stimulate GOOD bacteria to keep the defenses working against those bad bacteria, helping to prevent the bacterial imbalance that leads to poor health and disease.

In the case of prebiotics, an ounce of prevention can really be worth the lb. of cure in terms of healthier days for your pets as well as fewer trips to the veterinarian.

Practical benefits of adding prebiotics are:

1. Breaks down food for proper nutrient absorption for healthier coats, better nutrient building blocks for growing puppies and dogs.
2. Fight pathogens – keeps the digestive system ready and able to naturally fight off disease.
3. Prevents and treats diarrhea: Diarrhea is a common symptom of illness and digestive difficulties and are usually the result of a bacterial imbalance.
4. Reduces fecal, breath and body odor. A lot of the odor associated with animal waste is caused by undigested protein – yes, the protein is in the poop instead of the pet and the protein in poop stinks.
5. Reduces the amount of poop. If more nutrients stay in the dog, there is less waste and it is of a firmer consistency. This strange little fact can be a joyous revelation for any pet owner that has to do cleanup duty.

Even great natural foods can still leave health gaps because as good as they are – they are not a real carnivore diet. Adding the right prebiotic digestive solution can fill in those gaps for a well-rounded nutritional experience.

A prebiotic will act as a silent protector, making sure that the animal is receiving proper nutrition, helping to prevent future nutrition-related problems and keeping disease resistance at an optimal level.

We spend billions of dollars each year pampering our pets with special treats, holiday costumes, designer carriers and spa quality grooming products because we love them. Adding a prebiotic digestive aide to a beloved pet’s diet for just a few dollars per year can help insure optimal health, a better immune system and a longer life for their happiness and ours.
