Rowan Sanderson sits down with Dr. Brendan Clarke, President of the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society (RFVS) to discuss probiotics for dogs and their benefits. They talk about the probiotic specifically formulated for cats and dogs, FidoSpore.
Probiotics are anything which promotes beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract—in the microbiome, essentially. This can be in the form of a probiotic pill or foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, and other fermented products rich in fermented bacteria for the host.
The supplement FidoSpore is the first canine and feline-specific probiotic. Rowan highly recommends this supplement over fermenting your own food because, in FidoSpore, you know exactly which strains are in the mix. You also know for sure that you are feeding beneficial bacteria specifically handpicked for cats and dogs. Research suggests that FidoSpore generally addresses itchy skin, red or inflamed skin, ear problems, digestive issues, and low energy.
