Did you know that it’s not only us humans that can benefit from probiotics, but also our pets?
In animals, bacteria are found just about everywhere: on all exposed external and internal surfaces of the body – the ears, nose, the eyes, skin, mouth, throat, and airways – as well as in the intestines, cecum, and colon.
Almost 90 percent of an animal’s immune system is in the wall of the intestines. Without a healthy balance of good bacteria within their digestive tract, their immune system cannot function in a healthy fashion. Allergies or intolerances often start in the gut and are the result of an imbalance of bacteria.
Many factors can impact the balance of bacteria including genetics, environment, hygiene, stress, infection, and diet.
A good quality probiotic contains bacteria that act together to restore disrupted balance in the gut. These “good bacteria” must survive the acid in the stomach and the bile in the small intestines to be successful.
It has been found that animals with gastrointestinal issues can greatly benefit from a good probiotic supplement. Probiotics gently help animals get over digestive disturbances by bringing the bacteria in the digestive tract into balance – without the use of harsh medicines. Using pharmaceuticals to treat most digestive disturbances is usually ineffective and often slows the recovery of a balanced, normally functioning digestive system.
Probiotic supplementation can even improve the overall wellbeing of healthy animals and support a healthy immune system.
Probiotics can also improve the health of animals on a processed kibble diet or irradiated and pasteurized raw foods. They can also benefit animals who exhibit stress or who have sensitive digestive systems.
General dosage recommendations for pets:
Small pets (cats & dogs) should start with about 1/4 teaspoon per day
Medium pets can start with 1/2 teaspoon per day
Large pets can start with 3/4 teaspoon per day
This is a rough starting point as there is no real accurate dosage as we are really talking about a food, not medication. You can increase the amount from there, up to about a tablespoon for larger dogs.
A few pointers to be aware of.
Dogs, in particular, can go through a body detox and if you start to see signs of loose stools, you can increase the amount of oil in their food to help absorption in the small intestine rather than passing into the large intestine.
If you do notice any symptoms of diarrhoea or nausea, lower the dose by ½ for a few days. If symptoms persist, do not continue giving your pet turmeric and seek advice from your preferred vet.

Prebiotics are various types of preferred foods that nourish the probiotic bacteria and keep them active. Feeding prebiotics along with probiotics gives your pet symbiotics.
