Dogs aren’t afraid to stick their noses in all sorts of places. While this curiosity can be charming, it can also lead to more bacteria getting into their system. You can’t always stop a dog from licking some unknown substance during a walk, but you can take some actions to support their digestive tract ahead of time.
Replenish the Healthy
If your dog’s gastrointestinal tract was a summer blockbuster movie, bacteria could be the star. Bacteria exists on all sorts of objects, including the ones that your curious dog may decide to lick when she’s outside or sneaks into the garbage. Once ingested, the bacteria may make a beeline for your dog’s gut.
Just how important is your dog’s gastrointestinal health? Roughly 70 percent of your dog’s immune system stems from the digestive tract, so a healthy gut is very important for your furry friend’s wellbeing.
Fortunately, there is good bacteria (and just like in summer blockbusters, good is the hero). There are many different strains of good, healthy bacteria that live in your dog’s digestive tract, helping your furry friend absorb nutrients and helping keep other bacteria in check. However, they may need some help when your pooch unknowingly ingests something unhealthy.
Proactive Approach with Probiotics for Dogs
Sometimes your gut needs some reinforcements. Probiotics can help you deliver additional healthy bacteria to support your dog’s digestive health and immune function. Bil-Jac BreakThru® Biotics Probiotic Food Spray is made with not one or two but, twelve strains of natural, live and active bacteria, each provide support in case some other bacteria gets into your dog’s system.
It is important to select probiotics meant for your dog, not for you. BreakThru Biotics is specially formulated for your furry friend, providing her with Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, and other key beneficial bacterial strains. The best thing about BreakThru Biotics is it comes in a tasty spray that you can just spritz on your dog’s food, making it easy for you to proactively support her digestive health and immune function every day.
