When to use Probiotics
Dogs are exposed to many stresses that can result in lack of appetite, diarrhea and other intestinal upsets. These stresses may include:
- Transportation ~ Some dogs can become extremely agitated when traveling by car or plane which
- Intensive Training ~ Training for Obedience, Schutzhund, Agility, Personal Protection, and Police Service puts considerable stress on the dog.
- Competition Dogs ~ The excitement of the competition, along with traveling, and exposure to strange dogs and people, can create a nervous stress in dogs, frequently manifested by reduced appetite, vomiting and diarrhea.
- Boarding ~ Lack of appetite or nervous diarrhea are common in some dogs when boarded in a strange kennel.
- Antibiotic Therapy ~ Antibiotics can destroy pathogenic microorganisms as well as the beneficial bacteria that are normally found in an animal's digestive tract.
- Post-Parvo Virus Infections ~ Parvo virus infection in dogs is a devastating disease of the small intestine in susceptible dogs causing enormous stress on the dogs digestive system.
- Post-Surgery ~ High doses of antibiotics are often used to reduce the possibility of heavy contamination during surgery. This frequently lowers populations of beneficial bacteria as well. In addition, antibiotics are used after surgery, which can alter the physiological activity of the gut and allow the intestinal microbial population to become unbalanced.
- Chronic Diarrhea ~ Many times, the etiology of chronic diarrhea is unknown, and the animal won't respond to usual therapy.
- Post-Whelping ~ To maintain appetite and good milk flow, give Probiotic to bitches, especially "nervous mommas" and first time whelpers.
- Newborn Pups ~ The neonatal period for the newborn pup is a critical time for survival. Normally, newborns quickly acquire bacteria from their mother and surrounding environment, many of which are potential pathogens such as E. coli. Therefore, it is desirable to establish early colonization of the intestinal tract with beneficial bacteria, especially if the pups become orphaned.
- Geriatric Dogs ~ Digestive problems are fairly common in older pets, including reduced appetite, diarrhea and constipation. Probiotics helps reduce the occurrence of digestive problems due to old age.
- Other Uses ~ There are many other situations in which dogs may benefit from Probiotics, such as excessively nervous or "high-strung" breeds, injured animals or during exposure to weather extremes.
