Do You Give Your Pet Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics?
Digestive enzymes are also very important because of the way our food is processed and grown today.
In addition, older dogs often naturally lack the enzymes needed to properly digest their food.
Probiotics are a must after antibiotics and many other pharmaceuticals.
Why? Because antibiotics and other medicines kill off the good bacteria in the gut. Lack of good bacteria leads to a weakened immune system and possible overgrowth of yeast (yeast infections).
Some studies also show that supplementing with digestive enzymes and probiotics ease allergies by more completely digesting foods.
