Beneficial Bacteria for Dogs

They Aren't All Bad

Many dog owners’ associate bacteria with negative things, but only a portion of all bacteria are actually harmful. Most bacteria are harmless and some bacteria are important in maintaining proper digestive health for your dog. These good bacteria are commonly referred to as "beneficial bacteria". These beneficial bacteria help to maximize the nutritional intake and contribute to the overall health of your dog.

Beneficial bacteria incorporated as part of a balanced diet will help to aid effective digestion for increased nutrient absorption, production of necessary vitamins, reduce incidences of disease, and overall strengthening of the immune system.

Boost Your Dog’s Digestive Tract with Beneficial Bacteria

Most people are familiar with the importance of a well-balanced diet. Nutrition affects your dog’s growth, energy level, skin and coat condition, muscle mass, and disease resistance. One of the most important things in nutrition to consider is digestion, and how your dog can process his/her nutrients.

Some beneficial bacteria produce chemicals that stunt the growth of harmful bacteria. A healthy population of beneficial bacteria will compete for space and nutrients to prevent harmful bacteria from multiplying to disease-causing proportions. The healthier immune system your dog has, the better your dog’s ability to fight off pathogens.
