Pro Biotics are the good bacteria that colonize and grow the the colon area. They help to deal with bad bacteria and viruses. They stimulate the production of some enzymes and vitamins.
Most pro biotics sold for animals are very low dosed, (under a billion cfu's per gram) and not very effective in dealing with common colon problems. I suggest products with at least 10 billion cfu's per gram.
Something to consider when purchasing a pro biotic for you pet is not only the cfu's but the specific strains. Most strains just colonize. Nutrition Pets sells a product that is a pro-biotic for pets and aggressively colonizes, digests and removes buildup on the colon wall and attacks yeast. This product will produce an environment in the colon where assimilation of nutrients can happen normally.
