[New Product] NaturVet Digestive Enzymes Plus Probiotic Soft Chews
Proper digestion is vital to your dog’s overall good health. Tummy troubles that result in vomiting or diarrhea mean more than just a mess to clean up. Your pet’s delicate balance of intestinal flora could be at risk. This could lead to chronic diseases and malnourishment. NaturVet Digestive Enzymes Plus Probiotic Soft Chews for Dogs help keep good bacteria and enzymes at a healthy level to promote digestion, even during times of stress.
What is intestinal flora?
When we hear the word ‘bacteria’, most of us think “Bacteria will make you sick. Get rid of it now!” The truth is, there are good bacteria and bad bacteria…and both reside by the trillions in the intestinal tracts of people and pets. In fact, good bacteria are essential for good health. These so-called ‘good’ types of bacteria help prevent an overpopulation of ‘bad bacteria’, such as Escherichia coli, that can cause digestive problems and make your pet miserable.
Considering that the majority of your dog’s immune system is located in the stomach, intestines, and colon, creating a healthy atmosphere in the digestive tract is vital to help fight off disease.
What are digestive enzymes?
Digestive enzymes such as alpha-Amylase, lipase, cellulase, and protease help break down carbohydrates, fats, fiber, and proteins respectively. If your pet is lacking these important enzymes, complete digestion and utilization of food for energy are compromised. That means your dog will be missing out on all of the vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients needed to perform all the bodily functions and processes that ensure a healthy life. If food passes through your pet’s digestive system without being digested properly, bad bacteria may flourish.
What are the symptoms of intestinal flora imbalance in dogs?
When intestinal flora is out of balance with bad bacteria outnumbering the good,
your pet may experience:
- Bad breath
- Abdominal bloating and/or pain
- Change in appetite
- Straining to defecate
- Changes in the number or volume of bowel movements
- Flatulence (gas)
Solutions for intestinal flora imbalance in dogs
Your pet’s intestinal flora may become unbalanced after a significant dietary change (like switching food brands), following antibiotic treatment, or during times of stress or illness.
In the case of switching to a new dog food brand, make sure that you do so gradually. Add just a small amount of the new food to your pet’s current food, and increase the amount of new food each day until your pet is only eating the new brand. This will help prevent disturbance of your dog’s digestive system.
Supplementing your dog’s diet with digestive enzymes and probiotics can help promote optimal digestion, support the immune system, and improve your pet’s overall health.
