Re: Let's talk about the Benfits of Probioitics

I have my GSD on FortiFlora. I bought it at the Vet's clinic. Does anyone know if you have to wait awhile after sprinkling the probiotics on kibble or can they eat immediately after?

Re: Let's talk about the Benfits of Probioitics

Our guys are on Nupro which has probiotics in it as well as all that other good stuff.

I've posted before about how we beat the runs with this stuff, after months of keeping a poop log. Now we have prize-winning poop all the time.

My folks had their old Westie on Fortiflora for a while to help with his tummy problems. We pet sat him for four months and switched him to Nupro. He's done much better on that and even stubborn mom is going to stick with it.

A fantastic herbal probiotic you can give is calendula. I don't give it to the dogs, but other animals here and it's amazing how beneficial it is. It just balances the gut flora, not leaning either way, just balances.

It doesn't say anything but to give him one packet daily in his feeding.

Re: Let's talk about the Benfits of Probioitics

Probioitics are not like digestive enzymes that you need to wait for X amount of time before feeding.

Since there were no specific directions then I would just mix in and feed your pup.

Re: Let's talk about the Benfits of Probioitics

Anybody ever hear of SymbioLact Complete? That is what my vet reccomended for Grimm. He tolerates it well. I wonder if fed with green tripe at the same time, would some of the bacterial toughs from the wrong side of the tracks in the tripe... beat up on the refined, snobby bugs in the human-grade SymbioLact Complete? I'm kinda asking if one might cancel another out? Or if tripe bugs are harmful in any way? I am, by the way, giving Grimmi abx for a hotspot in the morning feed, and the probiotics in his evening feed.. about 8-9 hours apart. Is that far enough?
