Digestive Aid

Digestive Aid

‘You are what you eat’ – and everything that your dog consumes becomes a part of their body. The digestive tract is a long tube that is directly connected to the outside world. Because the gut is often the first line of defense against bacteria and other pathogens, keeping it healthy is incredibly important. A healthy gut leads to a healthy immune system which ensures your dog can fight off many diseases.

Symptoms of an unhealthy gut:

  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Bloating and/or flatulence
  • Atopic dermatitis: redness and itching of the skin
  • Bad breath and/or gum disease
  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Hyperactivity
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Joint pain/arthritis
  • Respiratory issues
  • Gastrointestinal cancer

Support a healthy gut by:

  • Supplementing your dog’s diet with a high-quality probiotic. Learn about the importance of probiotics on our blog here!
