Intesto-Guard: The Best Probiotics For Cats & Dogs

The health of your dog or cat's digestive system relies on a healthy gut microbiome. That's why it's crucial to supplement the good bacteria in your pet's diet with Intesto-Guard. Your probiotic should be able to compete with the bad guys in your pet’s gut and outnumber them to establish an effective balance in your pet's intestinal tract. Probiotics and prebiotics are substances that can potentially improve your pet's gut health, immune system, stool quality, and overall well-being. While prebiotics and probiotics for cats and dogs are often used interchangeably, there are key differences.

What Are Probiotics For Cats & Dogs?

Probiotics are live microorganisms that help maintain a healthy gut. They’re great for cats, dogs, and humans alike.

Regarding pets, it’s important to ensure their digestive tract is as healthy as possible. This is where probiotics come into play. These live bacteria can help keep your pet’s intestines in balance by producing enzymes that aid in digestion, boosting immunity, and helping to fight off disease-causing pathogens in the gut. 

Probiotics are available in many products, including foods, treats, supplements, etc. There are many advantages to using them with your cat or dog, including:

Improved digestion – This includes better nutrient absorption and reduced gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea and vomiting, which can occur when bacteria are imbalanced in the gut. 

Better immune system function – The immune system relies on a healthy gut in order to function properly, so if there is an imbalance of good versus bad bacteria, then this can result in allergies or other signs of immune-related disorders such as ear infections or skin conditions.

Reduced risk of infection – The idea behind feeding your pet with probiotics is that it can help support their immune system, reduce inflammation and even improve overall health.

What Are Prebiotics?

Prebiotics are food ingredients that help the good bacteria in your pet's digestive tract to grow. They can be found in many commercial pet foods, but you can also give them to your pet as a supplement.

The best prebiotics for cats and dogs are ones that contain inulin or oligofructose, which come from chicory root or wheat. These prebiotic fibers pass through the small intestine without being digested and move into the colon, where they become food for good bacteria.

The digestive tract of a healthy dog or cat contains billions of beneficial bacteria that help break down food and keep harmful bacteria under control. The more beneficial bacteria there are, the better your pet's digestion. Good digestion leads to better absorption of nutrients from food, which helps keep your pet healthy and happy!

Does My Pet Need Prebiotics AND Probiotics?

Yes! Pets need prebiotics and probiotics because they have digestive systems similar to humans. Dogs and cats have lactobacilli in their intestines that help break down food into nutrients for absorption into their bodies for energy production. These good bacteria can be depleted by antibiotics, stress, or poor diet choices.

Cats and dogs have a microbiome, just like humans. This means that bacteria in their digestive tract help them digest food and absorb nutrients. Probiotics promote a healthy gastrointestinal (GI) tract, while prebiotics promotes good bacteria growth. Both are important for your pet’s health.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that animals can ingest to produce health benefits. Many probiotic supplements contain Lactobacillus species, a type of “good” bacteria found in the GI tract of cats and dogs. In addition to supporting the immune system, probiotics may also improve intestinal transit time, improve nutrient absorption and reduce overall stress levels — especially when combined with prebiotics!

Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that stimulate the growth of “good” bacteria, such as lactobacilli, in the digestive tract. Prebiotics are often found in fruits, vegetables, and grains that have not been processed or refined (unlike kibble dog foods).

Why Do My Pets Need Intesto-Guard Probiotics and Prebiotics?

The digestive system of your pet is where most health problems begin. When your dog or cat doesn’t have enough beneficial bacteria in their gut, they can develop digestive problems like diarrhea and constipation, which may lead to other health issues like skin allergies and infections. Probiotics can help strengthen your pet’s immune system and support healthy digestion by restoring balance in their digestive tract.

Prebiotics can be used as an alternative or adjunct to antibiotics for dogs or cats experiencing intestinal issues such as diarrhea, vomiting, or constipation due to their diet or environment. They also support overall health when used regularly over time.
