Do you use probiotics , and if so what type?

Just curious as I was thinking about getting some for my dogs, but not sure what to try

Yogurt! The new Activia has 3 different pro-biotics in it! Cheap and easy to use and usually the dogs like and eat it!

I just finished reading up on feeding yogurt and it said the amount in it isn't really enough...

I use ProBac
or
Digestive Aid
I give yogurt too, just because they like it, and it helps Vicki's gas a LOT.

I used the Systemajuv w/Pookie, but I just use the Probac with Vicki. The probiotic on b-naturals is a good one too though. Lew has really good products.

Yogurt has helped tremendously with Lambie's gas.

Many performance athletes are getting on this band wagon. They get rid of bloat and discomfort, and many feel help absorbtion of nutrients.
A good digestive enzyme complex should include lipase for fat digestion, protease for protein digestion, and amylase for carbohydrate digestion,.. most are herbal crap that only breakdown protein. A couple of good Enzyme caps with a working dog's main meal cant hurt.

I like this product

For Probiotics, I like GreatDophilus

Garden of Life has awesome products...I highly recommend them. Their supplements really helped my old girl that had cancer. They also have a good probiotic:

I'll have to check out their digestive enzyme. I've started taking them too, and can tell a difference. Thanks for the info!
