Probiotics are typically safe to use long term.

Fortiflora has some stuff in it that I would prefer not to give my dogs, especially long term. If your dog needs probiotics, there are far better products out there.

Fortiflora
Ingredients: Animal digest, Enterococcus faecium, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Vitamin E supplement, beta-Carotene, zinc proteinate, salt, manganese proteinate, ferrous sulfate, copper proteinate, calcium iodate, sodium selenite. Contains a source of live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms.

Guaranteed Analysis: Crude Protein (Min) 43%, Crude Fat (Min) 12.0%, Crude Fiber (Max) 1.0%, Moisture (Max) 5.0%, Microorganisms (Min) (Enterococcus faecium) 1 X 10^8 CFU/g.

I give Acidophilus capsules (easily opened and sprinkled over food if your dog doesn't like taking pills).

You'll definitely want to check out this thread for further information. http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=530141&page=1#Post530141

Can we give them probiotics on a long term basis or just when using the antibiotics or when they have a flare up? Thanks in advance.
