The Benefits of Probiotics

Probiotics are great for humans...and their pets!

  • Probiotics are live bacteria that are great for your digestive system and overall health
  • Humans have more bacterial cells than human cells – this is true for cats and dogs as well
  • Probiotics help rebuild the "good" bacteria after taking antibiotics
    • Nearly 52% of cats and 77% of dogs have been medicated over the past year.
  • Probiotics lower the amount of "bad" bacteria in that can cause infections
  • Probiotics help balance "good" and "bad" bacteria to keep the body functioning properly
  • Probiotics support immunity and proper digestion
  • Probiotics produce B vitamins and a wide variety of metabolites to assist with digestion and defense against pathogens – strain diversity is critical
  • Prebiotics are indigestible fibers that act as good for the good bacteria
