Probiotics For Your Dog!

Disclosure: The item(s) mentioned below were provided complimentary for the purpose of an honest review. The opinions stated here are based upon my personal experience with the product(s) and are entirely my own. Regardless, I only recommend products or services that I feel would benefit my readers.

We are vitamin takers in our house. For my entire life my maternal grandparents sold "vitamins" (that is only in quotes because vitamins seems like such a generic term), and for as long as I can remember we have taken them. That being said, I never realized that there were vitamins for dogs out there. We have a 5 year old black lab, who is like another kid so we strive to keep him healthy to give him a long, wonderful life. I was recently given the opportunity to try Ample Nutrition Complete Dog Prebiotic and Probiotic. I didn't try it, but I did give it to my dog :)

Ample Nutrition was created by a group of veterinarians who have time and energy invested in the well-being of dogs. I could not think of a better group of people to create a supplement for dogs, because no one knows them better. With careful consideration, they chose 11 probiotic chains and 1 prebiotic booster to create their Complete Dog Prebiotic and Probiotic. What makes this product unique is that the ingredients are considered "live" making them more useful once ingested. They remain this way for 18 months which is a considerable amount of time. The product itself comes in a nickle sized tablet that is bacon and cheese flavored. Depending on the size of your dog, one or two per day will provide them with the benefits of probiotics which includes: normalizing digestion and regularity, immune system support, rebalance the gut after antibiotic treatment and resolve diarrhea issues that your dog may be experiencing. On top of that, these Complete Dog Prebiotic and Probiotic are 100% natural, made with human grade ingredients, made in the USA, contain 3 billion microorganisms per tablet and are formulated without meat, chemicals, GMOs, soy, yeast wheat or gluten to give to the most sensitive of dogs. Plus, they are safe for puppies too!

I am always super-excited when I get to try something for the dog. I know how beneficial probiotics are for humans, but I had no idea that these same benefits carried over to dogs as well. It makes me feel great to know that I am providing my pup with healthy gut matter and keeping his immune system resilient. As I mentioned earlier, I have a Laborador, so the fact that this is "food" makes it desirable for him. He is always excited to get his tablets, and he thinks he is getting a special treat. It is difficult to say if or how these are working, as I am unable to observe what is going on in his gut, and he is an otherwise healthy dog. I am pleased with the ease of use however. This requires a once per day administration, which makes it easy to remember and no hassle. The only downfall I see is the price, as they retail for $67.99 per bottle of 60 tablets. There is just no way that I could afford that monthly, as it adds up. Luckily, if you purchase through their website, you can get a coupon code to purchase a bottle for only $10.00! And they are backed by a money back guarantee.

So far I have no complaints and I give Ample Nutrition Complete Dog Prebiotic and Probiotic 9 stars:

  1. Probiotics produce short-chain fatty acids, which inhibit the growth and activity of harmful bacteria. It is very beneficial to give probiotics to your pet. probiotic gum

  2. Interesting stuff. I know there's a lot of new research coming out about healthy gut bacteria and what it can do for your health in terms of digestion and metabolism as well as immune system boosting. So why not for your dog I guess. I don't know of any studies done on dogs but should be the same principle.
