How probiotics can help your dog's digestion and issues like IBS, diarrhea.
Perhaps the first benefits most pet owners see when starting their dog on a probiotic supplement is an increase in digestive health. Dogs that had issues with diarrhea and gas show improvement quickly, though be forewarned, sometimes the first week or two can cause an increase of symptoms, depending on how much bad bacteria resides in your dogs gut.
It’s not unusual for sensitive dogs to develop more problems in the short-term. Starting with 1/4 to 1/2 the recommended dosage can help introduce good bacteria slowly and help your dog get relief without tummy problems.
