Digestive Aids for Dogs
As pet parents, you may battle with irregularity and turn to higher fiber diets or add a yogurt with probiotics to your morning meal to help keep you regular. Your loveable pooch can sometimes suffer with those same irregularities or digestive issues and keeping his tummy happy is just as important as keeping yours happy. That why we at K9Cuisine offer a variety of digestive aids that you can add to your pup’s meals to help improve his digestive system and keep his tail wagging!
The main role of your pup’s digestive system is to absorb the nutrients from his food and essentially feed his body with what it needs. When food doesn’t move through the system as it should, this can cause nutrients to not be absorbed as they should, leaving your pup not getting what he needs. Digestive aids added to his food can help keep his intestinal tract happy, healthy, mobile, and allowing for proper nutritional absorption.
Do you have a pup that tends to clear the room with some smelly gas on a regular basis? This is a common digestive issue and one many pet parents look to try and correct. While you love your pup, that smell is just too much!! Digestive aids can help to reduce that gas problem, easing your pup’s tummy while keeping your house smelling much nicer!
Digestive aids for dogs come in a variety of different kinds. Probiotics add live, active cultures and microorganisms that help to feed and support the natural and beneficial bacteria found inside your pup’s gastrointestinal system. These bacteria are necessary and work to keep the bad bacteria out of your pup’s tummy and help support a healthy immune system. Prebiotics are similar to probiotics, but they are actually a fiber that helps clean the digestive tract and bulk up stools, resulting in less cases of diarrhea and loose stools. They also help to support the probiotics.
Digestive enzymes are also a digestive aid for dogs that help your pup’s tummy break down foods to ensure proper absorption of nutrients. Some of these enzymes can include protease, lipase, and amylase. They help to support your pup’s immune system and make sure he gets everything he needs. Many digestive aids will also include a variety of vitamins and minerals, as in many cases, certain vitamins support digestive enzymes, such as B12.
If your pup suffers with gas, loose stools, or irregularity and your vet may have recommended a digestive supplement, these great products are simple to use and add to your pup’s favorite food. Browse our selection to find just what your pup needs to calm that upset tummy!
