Probiotics are a new addition over the last few years to pet supplements as well as baby milk. The GNC Pets Ultra Mega Probiotic supplement is one of these products on the market. You can also see the multivitamin for dogs and the multivitamin for older dogs from GNC on this website.
The probiotic supplement is another great addition to the product range. Probiotics for dogs is new and over the past few years there have been a number of commercial strains. The first commerical strain would be Enterococcus faecium (strain SF68) and then there is also Bacillus coagulans. Bifidobacterium animalis (strain AHC7) has also been shown to reduce the time for acute diarrhea in dogs. There are also other strains such as Lactobacillus acidophilus which helps to improve the frequency as well as the quality of stools in dogs. The last strain is Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain GG (LGG) which has been shown to be effective in preventing and treating diarrhea in humans and this could also benefits dogs. The GNC probiotic list makes use of dried Bacillus coagulant.
although it is not a lactic acid bacteria it does promote production of lactic acid. The European Food Safety Authority has added Bacilla coagulans to their Qualified Presumption of Safety list. This probiotic is good for irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis as well as inflammation of the colon and large intestine. Always speak to a vet before buying over the counter supplements for your dogs and pets.
