Prebiotics for dogs
Prebiotics for dogs can be integral to maintaining the balance of a dog’s gut to help their overall health. There are many different prebiotics for dogs and cats on the market, so it is important to understand what makes a good prebiotic for pets.
Prebiotics support the growth of probiotics for dogs, which help to keep bad bacteria under control in a dog’s gut. By supporting the good bacteria, prebiotics help to prevent disease, improve digestion and nutrient absorption and enhance the immune system.
Studies have shown that supplementing prebiotics such as FOS (Fructo- oligosaccharides) and MOS (Mannan-oligosaccharides) can increase the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut.

The nutravet range has two products which incorporate prebiotics to aid a healthy gut environment for dogs.
nutrabio is a naturally formulated, veterinary strength paste for dogs and cats, developed with a high strength composition of Probiotic bacteria, Prebiotics, Sweet Basil and Kaolin, which combine to help normalise digestive function and support digestive balance. This is achieved by increasing the number of beneficial friendly bacteria that dominate the gut, and by binding the harmful bacteria and toxins, which are then removed from the gut.
nutraflora is able to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, particularly Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus species. The FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) in nutraflora has been shown to work in synergy with Enterococcus faecium for aiding healthy gut flora and normal gut balance.
