When a dog is sick or under stress the delicate balance between healthy and unhealthy microbes can be disrupted. In addition, older dogs are generally susceptible to immune systems that weaken as they age. Since a large percentage of immune cells live in the gut, promoting the growth of healthy, or ‘good,’ bacteria in the GI tract is a great way to boost immunity.


Probiotic supplements contain different types of bacteria and/or yeast that carry out different functions. For instance, certain strains, such as Bifidobacterium, may help to resolve diarrhea in dogs, and boost the immune system. Other types, like Lactobacillus, help dogs increase the absorption of nutrients and optimize their digestive systems.

Always check with your vet before changing your dog’s diet or adding supplements.
