Benefits of Cat & Dog Probiotics: Beyond the Buzzword

As a loving pet parent, you’ve likely come across the terms “cat and dog probiotics and prebiotics.” This buzz-worthy duo is not just pet care jargon. These friendly microbes offer benefits that go beyond a healthy gut, providing a natural way to support our little one’s immune function and overall well-being.

Let’s explore how the vet-formulated NHV Probiotics + Prebiotics work its magic, ensuring our cherished pups and kitties thrive in every way possible.

Healthy Gut Bacteria for Pets

NHV formulation of probiotics has 7 strains of high-quality probiotics and prebiotics.

Probiotics are healthy live bacteria residing in our digestive systems, while prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that encourage the growth of these good microorganisms. In times of stress, medication use, and malnutrition, the balance of healthy microorganisms in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract can be disrupted, increasing the risk of illness. Probiotics and prebiotics help restore and maintain that healthy balance of gut flora. 

Additionally, these healthy bacteria aid your little one’s body in breaking down food and may mitigate gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea, constipation, and IBD/IBS (Inflammatory bowel disease/Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Even if your pet doesn’t have any of these conditions or symptoms, they are likely to explore the world by putting random things in their mouths. This normal curiosity tends to cause different stomach issues in kitties and pups. Therefore, natural supplements can be used life-long to work as proactive intestinal support!

But the benefits don’t stop here…

How Else Can Cat & Dog Probiotics Help?

Now that we’ve explored the primary roles of cat and dog probiotics and prebiotics in nurturing your furry friend’s gut health, let’s delve into the wide-ranging benefits they also offer:

  • Immunity Support: The gut plays a significant role in your little one’s immune system. This is because the gut’s mucus lining houses microbiota that not only maintains intestinal balance but also acts as a frontline defense against infections and inflammation. Probiotics play a pivotal role in populating your pet’s body with these beneficial bacteria, thereby enhancing immune function and shielding them against infections.
  • Stress Support: Stress and anxiety can disrupt the delicate balance of the gut microbiome, leading to digestive issues. NHV Probiotics + Prebiotics can be a soothing solution to this problem, helping to restore equilibrium and alleviate the effects of stress on your pet’s digestive system.
  • Allergies Support: Allergies often result from an exaggerated immune response and increased histamine production. A healthy gut can help temper these responses. Probiotics may further aid in managing food allergies or sensitivities by promoting improved digestion and reducing inflammation, providing much-needed relief for your beloved pet.

Please note that not all probiotic supplements contain different strains that serve various purposes and benefits. Thus, it is crucial to select the right one for your little one’s specific needs. Discussing this with your veterinarian is advisable, as they can recommend a suitable product based on your pet’s age, size, and health condition.

Ingredients in NHV Probiotics +Prebiotics

NHV’s newest formulation has seven strains of high-quality probiotics and fructooligosaccharides (FOS) — a prebiotic type. Each scoop contains 5 Billion CFU (Colony Forming Units) of the active good bacteria that help promote digestive support naturally.

As extra gut support, this vet-formulated supplement also contains pumpkin and carrot powder to help enhance absorption. Pumpkin is also rich in fiber, which plays a pivotal role in addressing digestive concerns in dogs and cats and helps with issues such as diarrhea.

Before you introduce NHV Probiotics + Prebiotics to your pet’s routine, remember to shake it well! Sprinkle the recommended dosage over your little one’s food once daily. Cats should only take a quarter of the scoop per day, while the dosage for dogs varies depending on their weight. We suggest starting with half the dose for the first two days to allow your pet’s body to acclimate to the supplement.

In a nutshell, incorporating probiotics and prebiotics into your pet’s diet is a natural and holistic approach to supporting their digestive health, strengthening the immune system, and more.
