Naturally Restoring Gut Health in Dogs
Just like for us humans, a healthy gut is vital for a dog's overall health, vitality, and happiness. A balanced gut promotes better digestion, nutrient absorption, and a stronger immune system. If your furry friend is experiencing digestive issues or you simply want to maintain their overall health for a longer life, here are some natural ways to achieve that.
1. Probiotic-Rich Diet
Incorporate probiotics into your dog's diet. These "good" bacteria help balance the gut flora, aiding in digestion and supporting the immune system. Natural sources of probiotics include yogurt (with live cultures), kefir, and fermented vegetables. Be sure to choose food options that are unsweetened and free of artificial additives! Another option that many pet parents choose is an all-in-one pet supplement. Our Pet Health + formula is liquid for extra bioavailability and minimal taste when added to food. We source the highest quality FDA pet-approved probiotics for our formula.
2. High-Quality, Balanced Diet
Ensure your dog's regular diet is well-balanced and of high quality. Always refrain from feeding foods that are toxic and harmful for your dog such as chocolate, grapes, and onions. A nutritious diet supports the gut's health and overall vitality. Look for pet foods that include lean proteins, vegetables, and fruits to provide essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Our Pet Health + supplement complements any diet by providing essential vitamins and minerals, ensuring your pup thrives with each meal.
4. Dietary Fiber
Incorporate fiber-rich foods into your dog's meals, like pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Fiber aids in digestion and regulates bowel movements. Always introduce new foods gradually to prevent any digestive upsets.
5. Regular Exercise
Exercise isn't just about physical health; it supports a healthy digestive system and regulates bowel movements, promoting your dog's overall well-being. It's also a good release of pent-up energy and stress, which also have an adverse effect on gut health.

Pet Tip: Bone Broth
Integrate bone broth into your dog's diet. Bone broth is a great source of nutrients and can help soothe the digestive tract. It's gentle on the stomach and provides essential amino acids that promote gut health. In general, hydrating your dog’s dry food with water or bone broth can make it easier on their gut and more bio-available!
