Probiotics for Dogs
And 13 Reasons to Use Them

Probiotics for dogs do far more than cure antibiotic side effects and aid digestion. Take a look.

Most of us know the importance of giving probiotics after using medications, especially for the side effects of canine antibiotics.

Can it help cure other common dog health problems?


Probiotics are live and beneficial bacteria. Like us, dogs need the right balance of beneficial bacteria to restore and maintain a healthy gut.

Ready? Here we go:

  1. Aids dog digestion
  2. Reduces some food intolerance
  3. Helps remove waste products of digestion
  4. Reduces inflammation
  5. Absorbs nutrients, antioxidants and iron
  6. Manufactures B group vitamins, biotin and folic acid
  7. Increases energy levels
  8. Protects against harmful bacteria such as salmonella and E.Coli
  9. Regulates and stimulates many aspects of the immune system
  10. Removes toxins ingested through foods
  11. Helps detoxify harmful chemicals and carcinogens in the body
  12. Regulates and increases hormone levels
  13. Restores balance after anitibiotic use since this medicine kills good and bad bacteria alike
  14. The use of antibiotics isn't the only thing that destroys good bacteria.

    Poor diet, stress, pollutants, environmental changes, and other prescription drugs can also deplete beneficial bacteria.

    Even using chlorinated and fluoridated tap water for dogs is terrible for dog health. Chlorine is damaging in many ways. Osteosarcoma (malignant bone tumors) is on the rise in dogs and linked to the fluoridation of water.

    If you haven't seen it, here's my first page on canine probiotics. There I talk about the benefits of probiotics for dogs when switching to a raw diet.

My Favorite Probiotics for Dogs

The following are the two types I recommend most. Not only am assured of their quality, I can share these with my dogs. After all we share healthy foods, why not supplements?

  • Probiotic Eleven® (90 caps) - I serve 1 as a bedtime treat
  • NutriBiome Bacillus Coagulans Probiotics - Perfect for a dog with diarrhea to help reset the gut.

These are wonderful products that have helped many dogs. You can click on their name to visit Nature's Sunshine to price and purchase these wonderful supplements.

And if you buy a bottle of Liquid Silver Shield, you'll be on your way to having a home remedies chest like mine. I always have both on hand and if you get them at the same time it saves you 45%.

As always, if you have any questions, let me know.  As a dog health care coach, I recommend canine probiotics for many of my clients and always have a bottle in the fridge for myself, my dogs and even for friends who drop by with a tummy problem.

And last but not least, if you don’t want to order these products through me, you can purchase Jarro Pet Dophilus in the refrigerated section of your local health food store. It will be more expensive but you won't have to wait.

Whichever you decide to use, remember to keep them refrigerated to maintain their potency.

And just for fun, I want you to see how hard it is to give NSP Probiotics Eleven to a dog so here is my Lulu.
