Good health starts within – the pros and pros of pup probiotics.

More than 2000 years ago, Hippocrates knew that “all disease starts in the gut.” While he was of course referring to humans, research today shows it’s also true of our pets. 

While gastrointestinal issues are the main reason for unexpected trips to the vet, it’s not always easy to judge our dog’s gut health from the outside. That’s because the symptoms of a poor digestive tract impact the entire body — not just the gastrointestinal system.  

Signs of tummy trouble

Diarrhea, vomiting, bloating and constipation are the first things that come to mind when we think of gut problems. But the less obvious signs include itchy skin, dull coat, allergies, frequent licking, lethargy, weight changes, dental issues and even behavioral problems. 

It’s all to do with the balance of good and bad bacteria in your dog’s digestive tract, also known as the microbiome. 

What’s the microbiome?

Your dog’s microbiome is a complex mix of bacteria, fungi and even viruses, shaped by what they eat. That’s where you come in. As a pet parent, you play a huge role in the health of your dog’s microbiome with the food and wellness choices you make.

And while the internet is teeming with conflicting information about the pros and cons of different doggy diets, there is one thing that nearly everyone agrees on…

The power of the probiotic

Probiotics are essentially all the good bacteria that already live in your dog’s intestinal tract. Taking a daily probiotic supplement helps to build the microflora, balance the microbiome, and provide all kinds of added benefits against harmful bacteria.

Science has supported probiotic use for pets for more than 30 years, but this information has been slow to reach the ears of pet parents. Adding a probiotic to your pup’s daily diet is an easy and effective way to boost their gut health, not to mention cost-effective.

Heal is Leadr’s gut booster supplement, designed to soothe gut irritations and inflammation, restore healthy gastrointestinal function and support the digestive system during and post-antibiotics.

Perhaps its best outcome are perfectly-formed poops — every pet parents’ dream.
