Probiotics are naturally occurring living microorganisms that help keep your pet healthy. Not all probiotics have the same benefits. Even strains of bacteria from the same species can have vastly different properties. Each supplement blend contains a unique strain of bacteria and other high-quality ingredients that have been proven to support particular areas of pets’ health.
Prebiotics are a special form of dietary fiber that nourish the good bacteria already in your pet’s gut.
